Nowadays, everything has to be done quickly. Our senses are extremely stimulated, our bodies constantly pouring adrenaline.
For instance, when running in the forest with the objective of getting rid of the nervous tensions in such a relaxing environment, in reality we submit the body to another situation of stress.
Stress, whether positive or negative, has identical consequences on metabolism: it will produce adrenaline. This phenomenon dates back to the dawn of time. It already existed at the time of the hunter-gatherer, when he ran into wild animals, thus generating this physiological reaction which by definition does not come from the mind.
Obviously, I am not saying that it is not good to do sports or to run!
However, from a scientific point of view, the sympathetic and parasympathetic systems, which both regulate stress hormones, are constantly stimulated.
Thus, from the start of the day, public transport and traffic jams look like a confrontation with wild animals, knowing that for most people, the workplace really represents the next confrontation to face.
These stressful situations are part of the daily life of modern man, and we no longer realize their negative effects on our body, which as a consequence no longer has time to inject hormones that will allow us to get rid of its stress and relax.
It is the origin of depressions, burnouts, heart attacks and strokes etc ..., like a pressure cooker constantly under pressure until the day a joint actually pops out.
Previously, the hunter-gatherer's survival depended on his natural ability to remain calm in the forest, to blend into his quiet environment to be aware of the slightest sign of danger.
The natural state of calmness of the hunter-gatherer should be the one of modern man. But being constantly stimulated, even stressed by his environment, the modern man is far from his natural state of calm necessary to his performance.
The coaching technique that I propose consists of a combination of tools. These allow the coached person to return to the deep inner calm state of the hunter-gatherer in the forest.
