Neuroscientist, Exercise Physiologist and Nutritionist Paul Taylor inspires audiences to be more resilient and perform at a higher level through his talk “Stress-Fit”
Here’s a quick synopsis of Stress Fit:
Why would you aspire to be ‘resilient’ when human beings are capable of so much more? In this thought-provoking talk, Paul will explore the human stress response and how developing high levels of Stress Fitness enables you to adapt positively to the inevitable challenges that life throws at you and ultimately emerge stronger and better, with a higher level of performance. The talk will then go through a range of evidence-based rituals from neuroscience, psychology and physiology, that integrate and optimise the mind, body and brain to move you up the Stress Fitness Continuum.
