Stop, Drop and Breathe

Learn actionable techniques to immediately recognize and dissolve stress in the moment, from breathing exercises to taking a mindful minute.



Understand and change your stress cycle – from better recognizing triggers to re-wiring your brain’s automatic response to them. Uncover your inner critical narratives and learn to silence these voices.


The Stoic Mindset

Learn the fundamentals of Stoic philosophy – used for thousands of years by the world’s top performers (from Roman emperors to championship NFL teams) to develop a foundation of unshakeable resilience.
