Welcome to Season 2 of The Motivation Mindset!
The productivity podcast that can help you get stuff done without all the stress.
And de-stressing is what this episode is all about! Have you ever gotten to the end of the day and had no idea why you were feeling so stressed out? Here's a tool called The Stress Ruler that can help you figure out why you're getting stressed out and how to catch your stress before it gets too high!
In this episode of The Time Lab, listeners of the show test out two tools from previous episodes: The Stress Ruler, from Risa's book and episode 11, and Breathing Breaks from episode 26. Guests include Trevor Stockwell (a frequent MM Podcast co-host and leadership coach), Finley Woodmansee (a former aerospace engineer turned therapist), and Lanceperry Maniquis (a film student from Los Angeles).
They discuss how rating their own stress levels affected them, how they learned new insight about themselves, and what they learned about calming themselves down.
What did they do when they noticed their stress rising on the ruler?
Listen and find out what happened...
