How To Stress-Proof
Stress is, unfortunately, a natural part of life — especially in our busy and hectic modern times. You don’t have to let it get in the way of you designing a thriving life for yourself and those around you. Studies show that the key to coping with stress is simpler than you think — it’s all about how you respond to the situations and things that stress you out or threaten to overwhelm you.
I'm excited because today we have Dr. Melanie Greenberg visiting us at the Thriving Life Club to talk about stress and how to respond to it.
Melanie is a Licensed Clinical Psychologist, Neurtoscience expert and the author of "The Stress-Proof Brain: Master Your Emotional Response to Stress Using Mindfulness & Neuroplasticity."
She coaches businesses and has been a speaker at venues such as The National Organization of Women Business Owners and various University Psychology Departments.
She has also spent more than a decade teaching graduate courses and workshops addressing topics such as stress-management, mindfulness and emotional intelligence, neuroplasticity and positive brain change, resilience, willpower and grit, growth mindset, managing anxiety, overcoming trauma, positive psychology, negotiating relationships, leadership, health psychology, and personal development.
