MINDstrain and Ph.D research

IT IS INCREDIBLY IMPORTANT FOR US THAT WE WORK FROM METHODS
AND EVIDENCE-BASED TOOLS THAT CAN BE DOCUMENTED

Stig Sølvhøj has completed a PhD research in collaboration with Rushmore University, with 3,111 respondents.

Research has examined whether there is a specific thought process present at unwarranted stress, as well as whether stress can be reduced by working with these thought processes.

Key findings in this research have shown that 86% of respondents who experience stress have a common thought process: they have negative thoughts about the future that do not include solutions. This is the definition of concerns and worries. This is because there are underlying beliefs that it is either useful to worry and / or that one cannot help but worry.

Research has also shown that more men than women find it important to worry, but that women worry more than men.

By working with these beliefs, the study shows that 98% of 322 respondents are at a normal stress level within an average of 3.78 hours; 4 sessions of 1 hour, regardless of the starting level on the stress scale they were at.

The MINDstrain method works precisely with thought processes, and is further developed on the basis of this research.

For 20-30 years we have talked about stress

Yet with every decade, more and more people are experiencing high levels of stress.
For us it is obvious, that we need to do something different.

MINDstrain IS BUILT UPON THE LATEST RESEARCH ON STRESS

The University of Wisconsin conducted a study in which they examined how our thoughts about stress affect our physical reactions and hence our health. The study clearly shows that if we think our stress responses are healthy for us and help us meet challenges, our body reacts more appropriately.

Our cardiovascular system becomes stronger and works more supportively than it would if we did not experience stress. In addition, our cognitive abilities improve, in such ways as having a greater memory capacity and so on. The conclusion is that we are created to benefit from stressful situations and that the crucial element is how we think of stress (Health Psychol, 2012 September; 31 (5): 677-684).

Harvard University conducted a control study of 30,000 people, combining stress reactions and our thoughts about stress with risk of early death. The study shows that if we experience stress while thinking that stress is dangerous to us, there is a 43% greater risk of premature death (J Exp Psychol Gen. 2012 August; 141 (3): 417-422).

These studies show that we need to break with our traditional UNDERSTANDING OF STRESS

We often focus on the harmful effects of stress, and develop disaster thinking around how wrong it is when we experience stress. In addition, we must break the tendency for people with stress reactions to be diagnosed for long periods because it is a dangerous condition if they don’t find peace.

What we must replace this with, is a focus on how we think about stress. To prevent and manage stress, we should think of it as a state that we are created to be in and which may be good for us by sharpening our focus and making core bodily processes work optimally . When we think so, stress becomes a healthy and appropriate condition. When we turn our view on stress, we will avoid illness and avoid wasting a lot of energy on negative mind spirals. This will mean that we obtain more resourceful people and companies.

To prevent and manage stress in this much more appropriate way, we have developed a method which we call MINDstrain. With MINDstrain, we can give you an understanding of what stress is and how to ensure that you will never experience stress as a dangerous and negative condition that limits you. It’s an excellent investment in yourself and your business.

In October 2020, the World Economic Forum
released a report showing that “Stress tolerance, resilience and flexibility” are among the
most important skills to challenge in the future.

It is precisely these skills that are gained by completing our e-learning program, MYstrain (link to the page www.mystrain.org).

WE REGISTER THE EFFECT OF EVERY SINGLE MINDstrain TREATMENT

THIS MEANS WE CAN DOCUMENT METHOD STRINGENCY FOR OUR CUSTOMERS

MINDstrain have developed an APP for two purposes. First of all, it ensures that all MINDstrain Coaches are working methodologically so that we ensure that we deliver the quality we guarantee. Secondly, the APP measures the effect of our efforts on the treatment part. Below you can see the results of our effect measurement.
