Relaxed Body - Peaceful Mind

Would you like to learn how to deal with challenges and setbacks better, to experience more clarity and focus? To prioritise better and sleep more soundly?

Over four sessions, you will learn how breathing, emotions, thoughts, tension and relaxation are all closely connected. We will also look at how to recognise signals from your body and how to handle stressful situations.

About the Training

Each session includes some theory – max 15 minutes. After that, we actively engage in mental and physical exercises that focus on the effect of breathing.

  1. Discovering Patterns
    Discover how your breathing, emotions, thoughts, tension and relaxation are continuously influencing each other.   
  2. Signals from your Body
    Recognise daily signals from your body and how you can influence them during stressful situations.
  3. Increase your Resilience
    Increase your 'window of tolerance', the zone in which you can handle your stress well, and find the balance between activation and relaxation.
  4. Put Knowledge into Action
    To make a real change, we need more than just knowledge about the body. The prefrontal cortex helps us control ourselves. In our final session, we'll figure out what helps you when you're very stressed. How can you bring yourself back into balance when things get tough?

This training is for students who:

  • Experience continuous performance pressure;
  • Always feel they have to be ‘ON’;
  • Feel restless or anxious;
  • Have difficulty concentrating;
  • Sleep poorly or struggle with fatigue;
  • Suffer from - or are sensitive to - stress.
