 De-stressing with
Body Stress Release & Positive Psychology

 
The 'How' of Happiness
with Juliette Dyke
Body Stress Release
with Rob Petherick

Most of us want to be successful and happy in life, and often we try to look for that happiness outside of ourselves. We assume that if we work hard, then we will become successful and once we become successful, then we’ll be happy. The only problem is that a decade of cutting-edge research in the field of positive psychology has proven that this formula is backwards. Success does not automatically lead to happiness. In fact, it’s the other way around. Happiness and optimism can actually fuel performance and achievement both in our lives and at work, and a positive brain is overall more motivated, more resilient, more creative and more productive. In this talk, Juliette Dyke will give us an introduction to the foundations of positive psychology and teach two practical, evidence based strategies to help improve your mood, increase your happiness, and quality of life. We will get the opportunity to slow down, take stock and see that happiness is within our reach right here and now.

The word 'stress' is normally associated with its effects on the mind. However, it is becoming more widely accepted that stress effects the body too. Our bodies are designed to deal with stress in a positive way, but too much stress on the muscles can lead to pain, stiffness, postural distortion, numbness and cramp, and times of emotional stress can trigger or make existing back pain worse. ‘I’m getting older, what should I expect?’ ‘A decent sleep should sort me out.’ 'I'm not in that much pain.' ‘It’s not life-threatening.’ ‘I don’t have time to worry about this.’ Sound familiar? Rob Petherick will explain and demonstrate how by releasing the tension or 'body stress' that is stored in the muscles that sit over the important spinal nerves, Body Stress Release (BSR) restores the body's natural self ability and provides relief from pain.
