Dealing with High Stress Moments

Man Sprouts Episode 8

episode 8 of the man sprouts podcast - dealing with high stress

Welcome to Episode 8 of the Man Sprouts Podcast.  This episode I share an interview with Dr Simon Raybould, author of 'Presentation Genius' in which he shares insights from science on how to create and deliver better presentations.  In this interview Simon shares his tools and strategies to help us cope more positively with those high stress moments.  We all have moments where we end up losing it, saying or doing something we regret or not standing up for ourselves or someone else.  That old 'fight, flight or freeze' mechanism can be overpowering.  

Listen to the interview as Simon shares some tips on how to deal with that sense of overwhelm and thus enable you to respond more positively and appropriately in those moments.
