Ready to restore your energy, reclaim your mental capacity, and redefine your potential? Many people are feeling increasingly fatigued, isolated, and overwhelmed in today’s world. Whether that is due to the challenge of balancing family life with professional aspirations or the weight of personal and professional expectations, certain behavioral responses can leave us with increased stress and negative emotions. But there are ways to prevail. By effectively managing your emotional, mental, and physical energy, you can boost your well-being, improve relationships, increase productivity, and enhance resilience.

In this course, students will discover a four-part framework to live life in an energy-rich state, explore their internal challenges, and learn to build the mental muscles needed to better manage and optimize personal energy and capacity. We will ground our work in data analyses from disciplines such as neuroscience, psychology, and mindfulness, combined with practical applications across industries. Through lectures, hands-on practice, and group discussions, students will engage in a guided growth experience focused primarily on managing energy sources and energy capacity. Students will come away with both foundational knowledge and practical strategies to achieve greater energy, performance, and impact in their professional and personal lives.

No knowledge of behavioral science or psychology is required.
