How can we take the lead in managing our own environment and our emotions? How can we transform anxiety, stress and mental blocks into opportunities? Resilience and practice will empower us until we can firmly take control of our conscious brain.

In these times of uncertainty, many of us feel like we can’t move forward. It seems like our brain has gone into autopilot, feeling and making its own decisions. This part of the brain is known as the reptilian brain. It is the more emotional and instinctive part, appealing to emotions and reacting for its sheer survival. You’ll see that sometimes this part of the brain needs to be activated in order to escape the great mammoth that has rebelled against us and refuses to become our dinner... but I fear that time has passed and the caves are no longer ours; this new millennium has other plans for us.
At Preverisk we think it is important to learn how to sensibly manage emotions, by way of emotional intelligence, to achieve goals and feel fullfilled. We aren’t saying that you must rid yourself of any emotion that isn’t considered as "good", because emotions are adaptive: you have to know how to release them, feel them and above all manage them. Most of the time we can’t even detect the root of the blockage and so we cast a veil over it, standardising it, although in the long run, it continues to cause us stress and discomfort. All of this can be worked and can be achieved, we assure you.
