Manage Stress for Optimal Performance, Health, and Happiness
Many women are juggling the stress of full time employment and family. As a mother and wife, we are always faced with challenges about spending quality time with our spouse and children and what we need to accomplish with our business or career. Itís stressful to work in a corporate environment that does not support your talent and advancement. Itís stressful to run a business and run a family and try to maintain some balance in our lives. That being said, we may not be able to control all the factors that contribute to our stress at work or at home, but what we can control is the way we react to this stress. We can, in fact, learn some simple tools and practices to help us manage our stress level so that we are happy, healthier, and productive. Today we’ll learn some simple techniques to manage our stress to improve our lives and increase our performance at work.
Iím delighted to welcome Dr. Fred Luskin to GPS Your Career. Dr. Luskin is one of the worldís leading authorities on the teaching and researching of forgiveness. He lectures throughout the United State on managing stress, developing emotional competence, and enhancing positive emotions. His work is the foundation for the Maximize Your Talent programs† which you will hear more about today. Later in the show, Dene Vitali and Collette Gambino will join us to talk about their personal experience with the Maximize Your Talent program and how it has positively impacted their personal and professional lives.
Dr. Luskin teamed up with Dr. Kenneth Pelletier at Stanford University School of Medicine to develop ten proven skills for eliminating stress, anxiety, and pain that occurs in our daily life. This partnership produced the book, Stress Free For Good, which explains in detail the simple skills we can all learn quickly to manage our stress and lead happier, healthier lives.
