a new way of thinking
about stress

the stress cycle
Most people don’t realise this, but stress actually helps us achieve our goals.

When we get stressed, our brains release three powerful hormones that give extra strength, more focus and better durability…

Adrenaline, Cortisol and Norepinephrine (admittedly, the last one is difficult to pronounce)

These hormones were once used by your ancestors who needed to think and act quickly to avoid being eaten by predators, but now in a world where danger is less apparent, stress often gets misunderstood, underused and under-appreciated.

What once was a tool that gave our ancient relatives incredible abilities is now little more than an annoying disturbance that prevents many people from ‘chilling out’.

We want to change that.

By embracing stress, you can change your life.

By choosing to use these natural, untapped abilities in your body, you can achieve anything that you want to achieve.

And, we’re going to help you do that.

how to be super human
in 3 simple steps

After carefully studying some of the world’s top performers from professional athletes to entertainers to hedge fund managers, we realised that just by solving the following 3 problems, normal people were able to achieve extraordinary results in their lives…


Take Control Of Stress

As humans, we exist to solve problems that further our survival.

In ancient times, those problems would have been orientated around finding shelter, food and protection against predators.

But now, things have changed.

Most people in developed countries have these basic needs in abundance.

Without an immediate problem at hand, our brains seek out any kind of issue no matter what just to give us some kind of purpose (ever seen someone cry over spilt milk?)

Most people don’t realise that they can seize control and choose the problem they want to get stressed about rather than let their brain make that choice for them.

Just by directing your attention to what you care about, you’ll feel happier, more in-control and more fulfilled.

This isn’t easy of course especially when you’ve got a lot on your plate so we’d recommend writing down the things that are causing you the biggest headaches and letting go of the need to get stressed about them.

That way, you can re-apply your stress to bigger problems that matter more to you.


Reset Your Attention

Whenever you complete a task, your mind releases a hormone called an endorphin.

These make you feel happy and fulfilled.

However, technological advances have created a world full of distracting stimulants that provide artificial endorphin release.

Phone calls, text messages and social media updates are among the many stimulants on offer to our brains.

Often, the satisfaction of getting an update from a friend’s status on your phone is more enjoyable than the completion of a task that will bring you closer to achieving your dream.

So, it’s no wonder that so many of the tasks we set ourselves go unfinished and our minds get clogged full of useless thoughts.

Just like having a clean house, it’s important that you de-clutter your mind so that you can use it effectively to make sense of the world around you.


Relieve Tight Muscles 

Our bodies are the vehicle used by our minds to affect the world.

We can order them to do a whole range of tasks from the simple things like walking, eating and running to the more complex ones… playing an instrument, writing an article or managing a team of staff.

But, when we push our bodies to the limit of their endurance, they can start to wear down and develop complications.

Just as a car occasionally needs new tyres, we need to give our bodies some assistance too so that we can get them back on the road towards achieving our dreams.

The most common issue that people have with their bodies is muscular tightness.

It’s fine to have tight muscles, but when they get overused, that tightness solidifies and turns into knots and nodules.

With enough rest, these knots will usually release naturally.

However, in a world that never stops, most people rarely get the opportunity to find these moments to truly rest.

There are so many options available that tackle these issues individually…

but, Only massage therapy from an expert Solves all of them at the same time.

massage is great, but there is a problem

Going on holiday

Taking some time away from work is a great way to clear out your mind and rethink your priorities.

But, holidays aren’t cheap and travelling isn’t always relaxing.


By speaking to your subconscious, some people are able to get long-lasting effects.

But, it does not work for everyone who tries it.


Free to do, meditation helps re-train your mind to avoid distractions.

But, it takes a long-time to realise the benefits.

Seeing A Psychologist

A consultation from a psychologist can help you to look at their life differently.

But, it often only helps you understand your problem, not solve them.


Many people affected by injury, illness or disability are able to re-gain normal movement after physiotherapy.

But, it does not focus on helping the mind,.


As part of a daily routine, yoga is great for improving your flexibility, balance and your strength.

But, when you’re feeling tense, yoga isn’t always possible.


Pressure points in your feet can trigger all sorts of reactions in your body that may relieve pain and help you relax.

But, there is no scientific proof that it works.


You can get rid of a lot of tension through self-massage or asking your partner to give you a massage.

But, you may not be able to reach certain tense areas or have a partner handy.


By inserting needles into pressure points around your body, acupuncture aims to stimulate Qi flow.

But, there is no scientific proof that it works. 

Go to a health spa

A relaxing day at a health spa can take your mind away from the problems you may be facing.

But, it’s usually more about spending time with friends.

Cognitive Therapy (CBT)

Talking therapy can help you manage your problems by changing the way you think and behave.

But, if you’re feeling tight and tense, talking is of little benefit.

Self-Improvement Books

With such a vast pool of knowledge, you can learn to overcome just about anything through a book.

But, putting knowledge into action can be difficult.
