Stress. We all experience it, but how effectively do you manage it?
My guest today is stress-resilience coach, Jessica Patching-Bunch - who is on a mission to provide accessible alternative mindcare for women. Translation: She teaches practical approaches to managing stress so you can get out of your own way and create your best life.
In our chat, Jess shares:
- her own experiences with trauma, stress and loss
- the stress-resilience practices she uses and teaches
- that the resources we need are within ourselves - we just need to learn to use them
- that stress is a normal, expected human experience but that doesn't mean we have to let it 'overwhelm' us - we can learn to manage it
- the importance of the breath, mindset and movement in stress-resilience
- what 'intentional stress' is and how it can help (cold shower, anyone?!)
- why these practices are simple but often not easy (and her own way of staying on track when it feels hard).
More about Jess:
Tired of being told to “fix your mindset” and simply “have less stress” but never being provided actionable steps, Jessica created a coaching framework that marries research and real life, blending her background in neurodevelopmental science and her experience as a personal trainer.
She’s presented at neuroscience conferences, spoken to state representatives, partnered with Universities, and from all of this has learned that stress, while complicated, can absolutely be managed and conquered with simple, realistic steps. And she wants to help you do exactly that.
If you take nothing else away from this bio, please remember this:
It's not who you are that holds you back, it's who you think you're not. Remember who you are and you'll change the game.
