No more stress and burnouts! ​​​​​​​by Jurgen Spelbos

Jurgen Spelbos (1962) is the inventor of the Stressology method, a revolutionary new approach to reducing stress.

Stress and burnout complaints always go hand in hand with a disrupted hormone balance, usually a combination of too many stress hormones and too few happiness hormones. That dis-balance can be repaired by eating the right foodstuffs to help reduce stress and prevent burn outs!

Anyone suffering from stress has a 'substance' deficit, a shortage in vitamins and especially minerals, happiness hormones and so-called neurotransmitters. Our brain cells need all these substances to communicate with each other. As soon as the deficits have been eliminated, not only do a lot of the stress symptoms tend to disappear but people are also better able to cope with stress.

Deficits are caused by an intensive lifestyle with a lot of pressure to excel and by a less-than-ideal eating pattern filled with pizza and ready-made dinners instead of vegetables and fruit, for instance. But fruit and vegetables also contain less nutrients than they used to. As a result, we have all become less immune to stress.

Stressology is a new method to reduce and be better able to cope with stress. The first step in the method is to see of there are any deficits and to eliminate them. The next step is adjusting your life style. A lot can be achieved by eating more healthily, exercising more and taking more breaks. The book 'Minder stress met Stressologie' (Less stress with Stressology) is filled with hundreds of suggestions that can help relieve stress and counter burnout complaints.

13.00 - 14.00 hrs

Bootcamp

Workshop: How to meditate

On Wednesday 6 November you can learn how to mediate. That day you have access to a quiet room. So that you can continue practicing your mediation techniques after the workshop.

Why meditate?

It improves the way you perceive music, it can help you to lose weight, it reduces the effects of tinnitus: the list of proven positive effects of meditation is endless. Meditation is all about closely observing your experiences in the moment without judging yourself for those experiences and the reactions they may cause. This is a skill you will be able to use in many different ways. Scientist prefer to avoid the term meditation because of the religious connotations and tend to use terms such as mindfulness and concentration exercises instead. But they all refer to the same principle. We have put together some of the scientific findings:

  • It alleviates pain
  • It may help save your relationship
  • it helps reduce depression, stress, and anxiety
  • It reduces behavioural problems and ADHD

Wednesday 6 November
11.30 – 12.30 (room 2.17)

How to deal with: The Twenty-something Dilemma

Are you on the right track? Are you chasing the right dream? Will you end up where you want to be?
 
The stress involved in making these kinds of choices comes from the realisation that you have to find your own path. Your parents are no longer looking over your shoulder and while that does have its advantages, some feel isolated and lonely because of it. On top of that, it is no longer possible to blame your parents for your troubles and that can be a bitter pill to swallow...

Certain factors have an influence on the intensity of your feelings of stress during this phase in your life. Expectations from others, the competitive nature of today's society, and the many options available to you.The, unfortunately not unrealistic, risk of unemployment and having to choose a career path are also mentioned as typical stress factors during the quarter-life crisis for young adults.

We will take a practical and interactive look at the theory to help you figure out what the twenty-something dilemma means for you. During the workshop you will receive tools that will allow you to make better choices.

Wednesday 5 November, 13.15 hrs. 
Spanish Steps, Wijnhaven

Cancelled: Open discussion about Diversity, with Diversity Officer from Leiden University

Lecture: How to reduce Food waste, By Min Cho

Min Cho is Assistant Professor at Leiden University College.
 

Culture and background play a role in how people deal with food waste. This is the outcome of an exploratory research project among different groups of citizens living in the Central Innovations District in The Hague. Four assistant professors from Leiden University College made use of innovative research methods during this project, Min Cho was one of them.
Her current research project, as part of a knowledge partnership, supported by an award from the Central Innovation District in The Hague municipality, concerns with food waste as an expression of identities, prosperity, social and ecological rights and responsibilities. It is here that she developed an interest in the cross-section between public health, design, sustainability, and policy through research that explores the impact of emerging technologies and innovations in data collection (Open Data Kit, Photovoice, Simulation Game, and Augmented Reality).

12.00 - 13.00hrs.
 Spanish Steps, Wijnhaven 

Nature and Animals in the City, A tour through The Hague

The Hague is fairly rich in fauna because of its unique combination of various biotopes; sea, dunes, woodlands and meadows. Of all the municipalities in the Netherlands, The Hague has the most species of birds in the Netherlands!
It's quite common to see a buzzard or a great spotted woodpecker. But squirrels, foxes, rabbits and unusual butterflies and other insects are not uncommon either.  Pine martens have also been spotted. And let's not forget the rose-ringed parakeets, of which we have a thriving population here in The Hague.

What can people expect during the walk?
Information, a good time, some amusing anecdotes and the occasional joke. 

13.15 - 14.15 hrs.

Salsa

Dancing is an ideal way to relax after a hard day’s work or study. It is also a perfect way for the expressive sports person to let their creative energy flow.

Salsa is a very popular dance of Cuban origin. Salsa means 'sauce'. The name was coined by a popular radio program sponsored by a manufacturer of spicy tomato sauce. The class offers you a blend of different dance styles and rhythms from the Caribbean. A spicy and sensual all-round dance class full of passion and fun courses for every level.
