Stress is not in your head, it’s in your body.
LONDON (PRWEB) July 13, 2020
In her upcoming book "HEART BREATH MIND: Train Your Heart to Conquer Stress and Achieve Success", internationally known expert in biofeedback, sport psychology and peak performance, Dr. Leah Lagos, shares techniques she uses with athletes, CEO’s and other clients who wish to perform at their highest level.
According to Dr. Lagos, “Stress is not in your head, it’s in your body.” Most people are familiar with the physical symptoms of stress. Dr. Lagos addresses those symptoms first by modifying the way we breathe. The science behind the 10-week program outlined in her book is the link between heart rate variability (HRV) and resilience. Dr. Lagos presents specific breathing techniques that teach readers to control their body’s physical response to stress while cognitive-behavioral exercises provide strategies to cope with negative emotions and prevent rumination. The result is improved stress tolerance, increased resilience and the ability to perform at an optimal level.
On July 29, 2020, the Biofeedback Federation of Europe will host a free webinar with Dr. Leah Lagos who will discuss her book and the methods she uses to rewire the body’s response to stress. We invite healthcare practitioners, sport psychologists, coaches and members of the public to attend the event. Space is limited.
