Program: Mastering Stress

Empower employees to control their stress, leading to improved health and productivity.

Stress is the single greatest threat to morale and productivity in the workplace. Built in partnership with healthcare experts and based on dozens of studies by leaders like Dr. Robert Sapolsky at Stanford University and Dr. Herbert Benson at Harvard, the Mastering Stress program cuts to the heart of how stress works. In 12-weeks, this program motivates employees by sharing how chronic stress is harming their happiness and productivity. After employees understand stress and its impact, and have the tools to reduce it, they are given the support they need to master stress reduction techniques that stick around long after the program is over.

Our lessons use animation, humor and story to engage your employees in topics like: how stress deeply affects our physical health, our work and our happiness; the history of stress and why we have it; and the eight essential, proven techniques for managing stress effectively.

Make it Stick!

With their personal motivation and habit change plan in place, employees are supported by both the online platform and the LifeDojo Behavior Change Specialist who serves as a personal coach. On a weekly basis, scheduled coaching sessions guide employees through the normal ups and downs in order to overcome barriers and make their new habits stick. LifeDojo Behavior Change Specialists are trained in a variety of evidence-based methods to help your employees learn to manage the daily challenges and successfully incorporate new habits into their lifestyle.

Choose a Habit

Once employees understand how stress works and why it’s so important to manage, the LifeDojo platform guides them through choosing stress reduction habits to incorporate into their daily lives. Employees choose from a list of proven techniques for managing stress, and create a concrete plan for how they will create long-lasting stress reduction habits with their newfound tools. Because they’re choosing the actual activities themselves, they become personally invested in their long term success. Because they start with a small yet effective change, they are 5x more likely to stick to their plan than other programs.
