All our programs in Kansas City incorporate stress management classes which are held every Sunday.

The ability to manage your emotions and remain calm under pressure has a direct link to your performance. In a research study with more than a million people, the results showed that 90% of top performers are skilled at managing their emotions.

Researchers at Yale University found that stress actually:

  • reduces the volume of grey matter in the areas of the brain associated with self-control
  • makes it more challenging to deal with future stress
  • affects physiological functions in the brain, contributing to chronic diseases, and
  • prolonged stress causes degeneration in the area of the brain responsible for self-control

Furthermore we also know that anxiety, as it relates to USMLE and COMLEX, plays havoc on  students’ emotional and mental wellbeing which in turn effects their motivation, drive, sleep, concentration, and productivity.

During our Stress Management Transformation classes you will learn tools that are scientifically proven to help manage your stress. In class, we practice stress management techniques that will still your mind and relax your body. The techniques: breathing, meditation, and mindfulness amongst others, help to create clarity and focus in your studies, and show results in higher test scores.  “Researchers at Yale found that meditators’ minds were more focused throughout the day—not just when they were meditating—and that these individuals experienced far fewer of the distracting thoughts that kill concentration… Practicing mindfulness actually trains your brain to maintain this focus all the time. As you gain control of your attention, your default mode becomes one of focus and calm,” Nicole Wolfe. Yale Graduate.

Our Stress Management Transformation course is your pathway to wellness and clear thoughts for optimal concentration and mind/body balance (this is an 8 – 9 hour exam it does add stress on your body too).

Another aspect of our Stress Transformation program is three personal, one on one, Attunement sessions. During this calm and relaxing 45 minutes with Gina (our Stress Transformation coach), students learn to quite the mind and focus on letting go of stress and negative thoughts that interfere with their performance.

What our student say about our Stress Transformation program:

It is such a gift and a blessing that IOMB recognizes and integrates stress management into the course. I have begun incorporating several of the mindful living tips into my day and as a result my test scores have increased by 26 points. I am leaving the program with more confidence in myself.

I took an 8-hour practice exam yesterday and I did very, very well 🙂 it has been the first time when I have taken a test like that, I felt so centered and aware of myself during the test. I was also able to remain focused on the task at hand, which is always such a struggle for me. I know that all of your amazing guidance has begun to help me release the knowledge I have stored in my brain. I can never ever thank you enough for helping me through this and being so encouraging.
