Stress management

Optimum daily stress amount

How often do we feel extremely pressured by problems to which we cannot find solutions because our mind is blocked by pressure of that stress?
Up to a certain point stress helps us to grow and develop. Stress makes us work harder and overcome the limits we think we have. However, where is the optimum balance point for each one of us?
Methods and techniques presented by this program help us estimate our optimum stress level, so that we leverage stress into useful outcomes.
