Stress Management for Atlanta

Despite being one of the coldest nights in 10 years, Dr. Gill Heart taught a 'Mind In Control' seminar at Chabad Atlanta.

Despite being held on one of the coldest nights in 10 years, 100 people attended a 'Mind In Control' seminar at Beth Tefillah, Chabad of Atlanta, Georgia.

The seminar focused on stress management. More specifically, the application and implementation of Special Forces, IDF, Mind In Control techniques to improve our response every day stressful events.

The instructor, Dr. Gill Heart, holds a PhD degree in Bio-Medical Engineering and is a serial entrepreneur. He served over 6 years in a Special Forces Commando unit in the IDF.

During his army service, Dr. Heart learned to successfully maintain and maximize performance even under extreme circumstances.

"Special operations require dealing with stressful circumstances. Being physically fit helps, but falls short of being the solution."

"Ironically," he adds, "it is all in your mind."

"Compared with my Special Forces army experiences, the stresses we go through on a daily basis are, in a way, more difficult," says Dr. Heart, "it is the continuum and sustained stress that makes it more difficult. A baby that cries non-stop, financial uncertainty or health issue are few examples of sustained stress."

At the end of the seminar, participants felt that they acquired a tangible skill: a Mind In Control technique they can immediately put to use and apply to every-day life stressful events.

"We attended Dr. Heart's seminar and found it useful and stimulating,” said Bernie Wolfberg, M.D. and Laura Robinson PhD, both members of the Chabad community in Atlanta. “Dr. Heart’s technique for managing stress was very intriguing. The exercises he used were fun and instructive. As a psychiatrist and psychologist, we found the methods that Dr. Heart taught to be psychologically sound. We look forward to future seminars.”

Another seminar participant, Geoff Frisch, said, "Gill is a compelling speaker and everyone was on the edge of their seats during the program. He has the ability to keep you focused on his program, a testimonial to his methods."

"All of us are exposed to some level of stress. It can take place at work or at home, with friends or family, due to internal or external triggers; often caused by financial, health or family-related stressful circumstance," says Dr. Heart.

"You do not have to go through Special Forces Commando training in order to implement and practice these techniques," says Heart. "Nor do you have to find yourself in a life threatening situation in order to find the strength to stay in control. Rather it is applicable to and can be practiced by everyone, and in practically any situation."
