Are you tired of being tired, stressed out? Hungering for relief from unrelenting stress?
The primary consequence of chronic stress, the depletion of energy- cellular, emotional and mental. The result: we are tired and fatigued; less able to think clearly; or relate well to other people, plus we are more at risk for illness. And if we have an illness, our healing abilities are slowed down. Our cells need molecular energy to repair, renew and replace damaged cells and molecules.
This pilot course Stress Less: GAIN Energy and Wisdom will provide you with proven strategies, knowledge and some coaching for you to become less stressed and more relaxed with more energy. You will be introduced how all this works at a cellular and mind-body level.
