The SMART Program
The SMART program has been developed by Dr Sood from Mayo Clinic, USA and Dr Rajesh Parekh has been trained to deliver the same in India. The program has been researched in more than 30 clinical trials. The results have been extremely encouraging.
Overview of the SMART Program
- SMART is a scientifically proven approach to decrease symptoms of stress and anxiety.
- Increase well-being, resilience, mindfulness, happiness, engagement, and positive health behaviors.
- The training addresses two aspects of human experience – attention and interpretation. Research shows that our brain’s attention, in its default state, incessantly wanders and instinctively focuses on threats and imperfections. This excessive ‘dwell time’ in the default mode correlates with symptoms of anxiety, depression, low engagement, and attention deficit. It also fatigues our brain.
- SMART offers a way out of this human dilemma by engaging the brain’s focused mode – not only to experience more uplifting emotions, but also develop better focus, enhance creativity and productivity, improve engagement at work, deepen relationships, and to find greater purpose in life.
