Stress is a part of life - a fact of life, if you will. We all experience it and we all deal with it at different times and to varying degrees. Though it’s not possible to rid your life of stress (doing so would actually be a bad thing!), it is absolutely possible to become more skillful in how you deal with it. Bottom line, the way you experience stress can drastically improve. The way to make this happen is to learn the tools that can be most useful for you to use when facing these stressful times in life.

Essentially, the thing that’s holding you back from feeling very differently amidst stressful times is not YOU, it’s your APPROACH.

Ever wonder what it would be like if you were productive and present in your life instead of overwhelmed and frazzled? What if you had the ability to focus on the stuff that matters day to day rather than running crazily from one thing to another? What if you spent most of your time feeling calm and in control rather than stressed and forgetting important tasks or appointments? That doesn’t have to be just a dream. That can be your reality. In this workshop, you’ll learn how to make that happen. The specific, simple skills and strategies that are taught in this workshop are based on a combination of common sense, ancient wisdom and the latest scientific research that, when implemented, will radically change and improve the experience you have during stressful times in your life. There’s no “go smell a flower” or “find a kitten to pet” type fluff in this workshop (although those things are lovely). Rather, this workshop is for people whose minds are always thinking, always racing and they need some actual, concrete, smart tips and strategies to eliminate the overwhelm in their lives.

A dad, serial entrepreneur, podcast host, behavior coach and author, Eric Zimmer is endlessly inspired by the quest for a greater understanding of how our minds work and how to intentionally create the lives we want to live.

At the age of 24, Eric was homeless, addicted to heroin and facing long jail sentences. In the years since, he has found a way to recover from addiction and build a life worth living for himself.

He currently hosts the award-winning podcast, The One You Feed, based on an old parable about two wolves at battle within us. With over 200 episodes and over 10 million downloads, the show features conversations with experts across many fields of study about how to create a life worth living.

These experts include scientists, authors, researchers, teachers, thought leaders, spiritual gurus, and public figures and all offer practical, actionable wisdom that our listeners can readily apply to their lives in order to act their way into a better, more fulfilling life.

In addition to producing the show, Eric works as a behavior coach and has done so for the past 20 years. He has coaching hundreds of people from around the world.

His story and his work have been featured in the media including TedX, Mind Body Green, Elephant Journal, the BBC and Brain Pickings.
