Benefits of the Stress Less Program

 nuuaria's stress and meditation program

Increased Peace

Emotions follow thinking. Choose a new thought and you can change how you feel. 

Better Sleep

When mindfulness and meditation exercises are done before bedtime, they may help reduce insomnia and sleep troubles by promoting overall calmness.

Better Performance Under Pressure

Chronic stress dulls our brain's executive functioning capabilities.

Improved Quality of Life

Life will bring it's ups and downs yet it's how you respond - in thought and emotion - that determine's your quality of life. 

Improved Immune System

Chronic stress taxes immune function by downregulating it to prioritize survival.

Weight Loss

Chronic stress turns on the sympathetic nervous system, keeping fat stored and glucose flowing for a quick energy source.
Using the Nuuaria Stress and Mediation course, Maya and her staff have guided me to a better state of mind. Stress is a part of life but learning that I have a choice in how I think about it has made all the difference. Nuuaria has given me knowledge and tools to change old thought patterns. As a result I have been able to tap back into my creativity and I have been able to enjoy being me! I have learned that I don’t have to settle for the way my brain processes information on it’s own- but I can use the tools to improve my quality of life. I know this is not just a short term fix but something I can use for the rest of my life. I recommend this course to anyone who wants to experience a path to calmness. Thank you,

What is the StressMaster Questionnaire (SMQ)?

You receive two SMQs with your stress less program for pre and post measurements of progress.
The STRESS MASTERY QUESTIONNAIRE (SMQ) was created through extensive research using standard test development methology by Dr. James C. Petersen, a noted stress psychologist, author, speaker and expert on individual and corporate stress mastery programs and interventions. Dr. Petersen developed the SMQ to help people learn about their stress "risk" areas and how stress may be having a negative impact on one's health, productivity, interpersonal relations and quality of life.

The SMQ is a valid and reliable stress "risk" assessment tool. The SMQ was created using state-of-the-art psychometric test development methodology. After being used in a variety of stress management programs, as well as by patients in Dr. Petersen's Biofeedback and Stress Management Clinic, it was validated through a rigorous year-long study funded by the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (N.I.O.S.H.). The SMQ is one of only a few scientifically developed stress risk assessment tools currently available and is recognized as the "gold standard" for use in stress management training, coaching and personal self-development programs. The SMQ can be used with confidence in virtually any stress management or stress mastery program.

Prior to enrolling in the Nuuaria stress reduction program, I use to take pride in my ability to work under pressure, in high stress environment and my level of resilient base on how much pain and suffering I could handle, I had the belief that the more stressful the environment the better I perform, my work performance served as evidence for several years that I indeed work well under the pressure, but I learned I was really just neglecting myself. I was overthinking, overeating and procrastinating. Everything needed to be perfect and just right. I feel so overwhelmed with the need to meet everyone expectation of me, I was unknowingly putting pressure on myself base on what I thought was expected. I was scared of letting people down.

After enrolling in the Nuuaria stress reduction program I learn that I am able to change, I saw the possible of a happier, calmer and better version of my self. I became aware that my body was under so much stress, my mind was all over. I was scared, my foundation was based on me feeling scared and my thoughts and emotions aligned with my beliefs at that time. I no longer feel scared, because I know everything will be okay, that's my new believe and truly believe in it. I am no longer scared  of exploring the possibility of a new opportunity, and even if it doesn't work out my way, that's still okay too. Maybe there was something to learn and that's a gain. I am no longer scared to use my voice because I no longer fear rejection. I sometimes experience insecurities but I am aware of them and I am able to trace the thoughts behind those emotions.

I have also seen a reduction in overeating, and displaying more self discipline, I choosing to move forward every day, I am meditating, I'm using the evidence journalling, and more aware of my thoughts, I am able to slow them down and redirect. I am applying the training information from the program and my mentor, and I can't finish this review without acknowledging the contribution from the mentoring program, it was above my expectations my mentor Barb was awesome!!!

To anyone considering enrolling in this program please do, but know you have to implement and put in to practice what you learn. I strongly believe that implementation had a huge part in my success with the program because I was fully committed, to find a way out. I was committed open minded and ready.

The Stress Less Program Curriculum

This Program is also/ formerly known as 'Nuuaria Stress and Meditation' Training'
My stress level dropped by half in the first month and my sleepiness has greatly improved. The group helped me to identity what my mental blockages were and why l was resistant to forming a new habit. I have identified a workable time and place for a daily meditation. I would recommend this program.
