DR. MEL'S MESSAGE - From my novels to my other projects, no telling what you will read. This is the only place you will get to read about how I developed a screenplay into a novel and what is the driving force. I will talk about many things from films to books to acting to producing. It really will depend on where my mind takes me. I hope you will join me on this journey.
There are many ways stress can be viewed in our normal day-to-day struggle, but I’ll do my best to try not to treat it like a superficial topic. We will start by analyzing the classic research on the stress response, moving on to define generally what stresses us. We will take a look at our character and how our perception and attitude play a role in defining our stress reaction and how our mind can get us to perform suboptimally under intense pressure. We will see how recovery plays a role in our reaction to stress, both physically and mentally. Finally, we'll analyze our leadership style and how that can affect the people around us, and how to manage their stress levels.
The ideas in this book are taken from classical and clinical psychology, as well as sport and performance psychology, the science of nutrition, sleep, biology, and anatomy. The ideas presented are the fruit of the research of people who spent their days or years developing, testing, and solidifying the research. My goal is to spread knowledge, make you reflect, and with a bit of luck, inspire even a small change in your life. These are the reflections of one person, they are anecdotal, and should be seen as such. Nevertheless, I aimed at making those thoughts and reflections clear, scientifically based, practical, and honest.
As they are presented, you'll find that the topics cover three main categories of development—physiological, psychological, and philosophical. But the distinction between those areas is purely intellectual because, as the body is an interconnected organism, everything affects everything else. How we think affects how we feel and our physical state, our philosophy, and the way we frame and understand the world around us will affect our psychology.
"The practicality of the course is exceptional and on point. It touched and related mostly to how I've seen things. It was an eye-opener." "Hi Matteo,
I just wanted to tell you it's amazing to read your work--I think it's brilliant. I'm finally done reading your work—and I absolutely loved it. It is very practical on so many levels, and to me personally as well."
