Are you starting to fray at the edges?
- Are you worn out, tired of thinking about everything you have to do, desperate for some peace?
- Do the weeks just roll into each other, feeling like you’re on the hamster wheel that never stops?
- Are you finding you’re just not getting to those most important goals, the things you really care about?
- Is your head fuzzy, soupy and just not firing on all cylinders?
If so, it’s time to hit the reset button.
Wouldn’t that be good?
Because imagine your week was flowing by comfortably, and that you were even enjoying it? Imagine you had energy. Could think straight. Could relax at night.
Imagine switching off and having real weekends!
Oh lordy, bring it on.
You don’t have to imagine (although it’s very useful to do so). You can have it.
How do you hit the Reset Button?
Getting on top of stress starts with getting in charge of your internal responses not just at the conscious level, but also subconsciously. That sounds tricky but really it isn’t. And the reason we need to create a shift at that level is because often our very important, helpful (and sometimes over-working!) fight-flight system is doing just that: overworking. While it is designed to protect us from harm, it can inadvertently start running a little too automatically when we are under pressure or worried.
It helps to ‘reset’ this innate survival response so that it only triggers when you are truly in harm’s way and want to be able to fight, fly or freeze (such as stepping out of the way of a moving car). After all, sitting in the office with an impending deadline or running late for a meeting is not generally considered mortally dangerous, right?! The rest of the time you can be calm, focused and energised in a way that actually helps you feel good and get things done.
It’s absolutely amazing. I don’t think I’ve ever gone ten days without feeling stressed and overwhelmed. And my boss has also noticed.”
M. Hammond, Services Manager
It really helps to get balance.
Once you’re on top of your stress responses, it’s much easier to see the wood for the trees and start making new choices about how you spend your time.
It’s easier to switch off from work and not have all those mental post-it notes whizzing around in your head.
You sleep better.
You have more energy the next day.
Life just keeps getting better.
Because you are back in control.

Workshops and seminars provide a practical and interactive environment to help you understand how stress is created in the body, what triggers it and provide a range of practical strategies for transforming stress. These strategies help you to feel calmer, think clearer and feel more energised and effective at work. Workshops extend from 60 minute focused sessions to half-day workshops.

I was amazed that the process of ‘de-stressing’ could be simplified into easy to follow steps. This will certainly be very beneficial to me throughout my professional career.”

THE GO PROGRAMME
Do you want your team or organisation to be on top of their stress, firing on all cylinders and creating a true high performance (not high stress!) culture? The GO Programme is a specially designed format of seminars, coaching and tools to help your team create sustained changes in their wellness and performance at work, to enhance happiness at work and results in business.
It is a truly unique programme with a focus on practical application and tailored especially for you.
We offer a range of programmes to help you build resilience and enhance your wellness and performance. Check out our online programmes which include webinar series, and if you are a leader in business wanting to overhaul how you experience your week and your life, take a look at the Resilience for Leaders 90-day programme. It may be just what you are looking for.
You will also find an increasing range of downloads and products available in the Shop.
You need to put yourself first.
Part of starting with You is about looking after yourself first. A crazy idea, I know.
It’s not about looking after yourself instead of others, it’s not either/or, it’s and. You just need to get the order right: you first, then others.
When you take time for yourself and have the opportunity to recharge, you are a better version of yourself, with energy and presence for the people you love.
Then you help them do the same.
Doesn’t that feel good?
People dealing with stress often say they haven’t got time to slow down, do some coaching or take a yoga class. That’s the point. You have to make the time – before you hit a wall and time stands still for you. Because when you hit burn-out or breakdown or just plain run out of energy, you have all the time in the world, but you don’t feel like doing anything!
Take the time, and take charge.
If it’s time for you to book, or find out more about what will suit you best out of coaching and workshops, call 0800 TO START (0800 867 827) or 021 403 408 or email us today.
Within a short period of time of doing NLP with Karen, I’ve found a new job working less hours, my blood pressure has dropped and I feel back in control of my life.”
