Chronic stress not only impairs our brain functions whilst we are stressed, but more importantly, it does lasting damage to our brain, as it kills braincells in our hippocampus. this means that, even if we we’re not stressed anymore, the damage will still be there.
Luckily, there is a lot we can do, as we will see in this course.
First we will analyze stress. where it comes from, what it does, the different types of stress, etc
After that, we will go over the 4 different types of dealing with stress. I call them 'relief strategies' For each of them I will give 10 concrete examples of what we can do to activate the benefits of that strategy. So 10 examples for 4 strategies: that's 40 ways to deal with stress.

It is packed with very concrete things anyone can do to help manage their stress levels. there are so many of them in this course, actually more than 40, as the title kinda gives away, So that you can find what works for you.
