Our brain governs how we focus, live, stress, worry, smile, sleep, love, learn, cope and much more, so when we fall into unhelpful thinking styles the affect this has on us is all encompassing. This session provides an overview an evidence based model for wellbeing and then delves deeper into different types of unhelpful thinking styles and how to shift and reframe them to become more helpful. Specifically it looks at how we can change our response to stress and high pressure situations, to avoid viewing them as a threat and instead view them as a challenge. Through practical strategies this shift not only improves our psychological resilience but also flips the physical impacts of stress from detrimental to positive.
