Stress Shifter is based on the latest research from Neuroscience that confirms we have the power to mindfully reprogram our brain's neural pathways to learn new ways to respond to stressors in our work and life.
Stress Shifter is a web based app, built in FileMaker, that moves a user through four simple steps.
First, it helps identify our stressors and where in our body we are experiencing the stressful sensations related to these stressors.
Second, Stress Shifter helps us gain insights by conducting an inquiry to discover the underlying triggers that have set off the stress response system of fight, flight, and freeze.
Third, Stress Shifter helps users take responsibility for our triggers, so that we can choose new ways of responding to the stressor.
Fourth, Stress Shifter offers ways to take positive actions to address our stressor more creatively and return to a place of resilience, balance, and energy.
These four steps can be summarized as Facing, Focusing, Freeing and Flowing.
Stress Shifter has Coaching Tips on each page to more easily move through the stress shifting process.
There is an "Intro to Stress Shifter", which explains in more detail how it works, describes the five key Stress Shifter principles, and gives a brief tour of its features.
