All-or-nothing thinking. Obsessive thinking. Overthinking. Trying to control things you cannot control. Perfectionism. Storytelling. Catastrophic thinking. Indecisiveness…

Habitual thinking is the REAL cause of stress, creating ill-health. Nuuaria Stress Program offers solutions for the public and organizations.

Thinking is the cause.

Emotion - and the ill effects of the prolonged stress response - is the symptom. We don't treat symptoms. We teach you how to think differently.

The Nuuaria Method®: how we do it

Thoughts create emotions that create behaviors. For most of us, it’s as easy to ‘be stressed out’ as it is to brush our teeth. It’s a habit of emotion derived from unproductive habits of thought – such as all-or-nothing thinking, overthinking, catastrophic thinking, perfectionism, obsessive thinking. 

We teach you how to slow the momentum of unproductive thought and redirect habitual thinking in moments of high stress to ultimately start you down the path of stress elimination.

a program unlike any other.

A smarter and better method that address the real causes of stress.

Thinking is the cause. Behavior is only the symptom. Behavior change, therefore, is only symptom treatment. We teach you how to think differently.

We provide proven and measurable results.

81% report experiencing less stress throughout their day and increase in positive affect (one’s feelings and emotional state), 93.5% report an improved overall quality of life.


We excel at the human touch.

Humans change humans. While technology is a helpful assist, if positive thinking and a once a week yoga class created permanent reductions stress, stress-related disease wouldn’t continue to rise. Human facilitation of change through the intervention of unconditional positive regard is the key.

In 1983, R.W. (Buck) Montgomery found meditation improved the health of his company. He instituted it at his Detroit chemical manufacturing firm. Within three years, he said, 52 of the company’s 70 workers--ranging from upper management to production line employees–were meditating for 20 minutes before they came to work and 20 minutes in the afternoon, on company time.

Absenteeism fell by 85%

Productivity rose 120%

Injuries dropped 70%

Profits increased by 520%

“As a result, people enjoyed their work, they were more creative and more productive,” he said. I tell companies, ‘If you do this, you’ll get a return on your investment in one year.”
