Working with Challenges

Working with Stress

We experience stress and anxiety when daily pressures and challenging situations seem overwhelming—they feel like more than we can handle. We can think of these feelings as the result of an unbalanced supply and demand of our emotional resources.

How can meditation help? By creating space in our minds, meditation allows us to distinguish which demands on our emotional and energy resources are valid and which ones aren’t. We begin to see situations with more clarity and a sense of openness and this makes both our situation and our state of mind more workable.

Working with Stress program includes:

  • Meditation Options to establish or rekindle your daily practice
  • Guided Meditations specific for working with stress
  • Blog posts to enhance your understanding of how your mind works
  • Daily Cups for a quick, uplifting contemplation to begin your day
  • Mind Talks that help you work with stress and see it in a different perspective

Whether you’re an experienced meditator or you’re just learning to practice, the Working with Stress module can help you gain perspective and reduce anxiety. By working with your mind in a healthy and fulfilling way, you’ll begin to experience life’s curve balls as workable challenges rather than obstacles.

This program features Mind Trainer Maria Camara, PhD, an experienced psychologist and meditation teacher who has studied stress from both perspectives. Maria shares genuine insights about how you can change your perceptions to better cope with stress now and prevent it from being a problem in the future. She also provides a guided meditation for working with stress.
