Choose Bliss, Not Stress!

Proven tools and inspiration to begin a new blissful life

Trainer: Anil Bhatnagar

 

A.  About the workshop:

·         The need for the workshop. If there is something omnipresent in today’s world-- it is STRESS! It is there with executives, housewives, businessmen, students and even children. As per an estimate, more than 80% diseases from which people are suffering today all over the world are stress related.

 

·         People who claim to have known no stress in life often collapse one day like a well-polished termite-ridden furniture—ironically on account of the unknown terrorist in their lives—the stress that they had turned their back on! Organizations will sit up and start thinking if only someone could show them the mirror and quantify the direct and indirect losses incurred on account of stress.

 

·         Just as it is difficult for water to flow through a twisted pipe, it is difficult for any one to give his best if he is stressed. Most of the organizations and people take stress for granted, accepting it as inevitable, though nothing can be further from the truth. Just like any other skill like dancing, cycling and swimming, one can also learn to lead a stress free blissful life.

 

·         The workshop discusses how most of the stress in our life is caused not by what happens to us but by how we respond to what happens to us. It also shares proven techniques based on decades of research to enable us to solve the problems in our lives that we can and to make us learn to live with those that we cannot. This is the only workshop one will ever need to attend to ensure a stress free living for the whole life.

 

·         How this workshop is different from those on the same subject: The beauty of this workshop is that unlike other workshops on the subject, it realizes that the participant is already hard pressed for time. A major chunk of prescriptions for stress management in this workshop can be woven into one’s daily chores and do not need earmarking any extra time. Most of the suggestions from the workshop, therefore, can be incorporated in the participant’s life simply by changing the way he attempts to do his normal routine chores. The rest of the suggestions need only an investment of a few minutes every day.  Instead of confusing the participant with tens of activities that ought to be done, the workshop guides the participant to chalk out a personalized, easy, and pragmatic blue print in the form of his own daily schedule to ensure a stress-free blissful life depending upon the amount of time he can (or is willing to) spare for this.

 

  • It inspires the participant deeply by showing him the mirror and making him aware that life can be better and is only an initiative away. There is always a gap between knowing and putting consistently into practice all that we learn whether from a workshop or whatever other source. This happens because of the inherent inertia and tendency among almost all of us to postpone any thing new that needs effort. I have studied closely and persevered through all these bottlenecks in the last 25 years of my own life and I therefore can guide the participant with my own experience to navigate through all kinds of pitfalls and offer him infallible tips on how to stay on the path.

 

·         Unlike the usual run-of-the-mill programmes, wherein 95 % of what one learns is forgotten quickly, this programme is mnemonic based so as to be retained better,  introspection/self-awareness-driven, and focused on transforming habits (not on merely increasing knowledge–base). The participants get a new way of looking at life with the dissolution of all their limiting beliefs and replacement of the same with more vibrant positive beliefs. The techniques are simple enough and performed by the participants under the guidance of the trainer so as to ensure that they can do them independently after the programme. The programme makes the participants see the futility of some of the common disempowering responses

 

  • The workshop, through transformation of one’s personal belief system, participative discussion, physical exercises, breathing techniques and meditation shall enable the participants to know

 

i.  what is stress;

ii. its physical, behavioural and psychological symptoms;

iii. where does it stem from

iv. how not to create it and

v.  how to manage it

 

  • The participants, by the end of the programme, shall have prepared for themselves a personalized, easy, and pragmatic blue print in the form of a daily schedule for incorporating the learning points from the workshop into their daily living so as to begin leading a stress free blissful life. The workshop leaves the participants’ hearts set on fire with an uncompromising zeal to live each day of their life by this blue print till it very soon becomes their second nature.

 

  • The participants find an enhanced commitment and enthusiasm towards their work, new vitality, improved concentration,  efficiency and motivation. The creativity level also goes up and relationships with internal and external customers become more cooperative and ensuring. The attitude the participants carry back from the training to their work place is contagious and makes the work place bubbling with positive vibrations.

 

B. Objectives

 

  • To make the participants aware of their stress-producing responses, habits, and beliefs, and how these could be replaced with corresponding empowering responses.

 

  • To chalk out a customized daily stress-busting blissful routine and to learn strategies to adhere to it with uncompromising zeal.

 

  • To learn how to maintain inner calm, efficiency, high levels of performance, and motivational momentum under pressure of work.
