Why Your Stress-Management Techniques May Not Be Working: Stress-Design Model for Long-Term Stress Relief

Ever tried stress-management techniques and wondered why they didn’t work to lower your daily stress levels? 😩 This clip can tell you why…

It’s from a recent keynote for the Canadian Mental Health Association, Brant-Haldimand-Norfolk Branch. (I LOVE an audience that knows how to have fun and laugh!!)

We’re taught what I call the Critical 6 of Stress Management:

💃 exercise
💤 sleep
🥗 nutrition
🧘🏽‍♀ self-care (mindfulness, meditation etc)
😎 optimism / laughter
👯‍♀️ strong social connections

We KNOW making healthy choices is powerful – OF COURSE! BUT – these aren’t a whole solution – and they aren’t universally beneficial (as you’ll hear in the video)

That’s why my Stress-Design Model is so powerful. It goes deeper to stop creating the unnecessary, destructive stress in the first place. Then fewer resilience muscles need to activate!

Welcome! I'm Allison Graham

Let’s face it – life is tough enough without having behaviour patterns that make life harder than it needs to be! 

That’s why I’m obsessed with finding ways to make the human experience easier by offering strategies for problem solving, dealing with chronic pain, leveraging empowering stress, and stopping patterns that create destructive stress.
