Is stress impacting you daily?

Developing a real time awareness of our internal reactions and external responses to stressors is a critical component of state management.

It’s hard when fight or flight kicks in, and for most people, they simply get hijacked and carried by their emotions and thoughts.

What is this costing you in your business, personal relationships, and health?

Today we will be looking at the body and mind’s reaction to stress with Dave Wood. The aim of the conversation will be to leave you with training and tools that will give you the skills to better mitigate stress in your life.

Dave is a specialist in stress mitigation, recovery and mental preparedness for athletes, innovators, leaders and those in the pursuit of optimising their health and performance.

Dave has an in-depth understanding of the human body systems and how they are interconnected and the importance of balancing the body for sustainable peak physical and mental performance.

Dave combines theory-based knowledge and practical experiences gained from 12 years as an Intensive Care Paramedic and Professional Ocean Lifeguard. In these roles, he was required to respond with high acuity to high pressure situations and critically unwell patients. In these roles he acquired and honed his skills in stress mitigation and ability to remain calm and focused under pressure.

Dave runs his own business in human performance, mentoring some of the world’s most elite level athletes in a diverse range of sports from the UFC, sailing and football, to name just a few. He has worked alongside organisations and companies, ranging in professions from lawyers, firefighters, navy personnel and web designers. The foundation of human performance is the same no matter the task.
