Work Stress Expert, Trainer, Speaker and Consultant

Matt Adams is a Work Stress and Work Anxiety Expert, Health-Hacker, Keynote Speaker, Stress Management Trainer and Consultant.

After finishing school Matt went on to University to complete an IT degree, but after a year working in the IT industry and inspired by the books on personal development, sales, marketing and business he started reading while at University, decided to get into real estate sales.

After quick success selling properties, within 11 months Matt was promoted to Sales Manager, managing a team of 6 sales people. 4 months later he was promoted to Sales Manager of a second office.

At 24, managing two real estate sales teams, running sales meetings, hiring and mentoring new salespeople, listing and selling properties, buying his first house and a new car, signs of stress started to appear.

Taking no time off and running on adrenaline for another 3 months, he finally crashed.

He resigned within 48 hours due to intense stress and burnout.

But this was just the beginning of his problems with stress.

Work Stress And Anxiety

Matt refers to the work related stress he experienced during his time in real estate in 2001-2002 as ‘Stage 1’.

About 8 months after leaving real estate he was forced to resign from a second job due to stress and work related anxiety.

The severity of the stress suffered while in real estate didn’t just disappear, as the stress symptoms now followed him to this next job.

It wasn’t until 3 years later that Matt suffered from what he now refers to as ‘Stage 2 Stress’.

Health, Fitness And Well-Being

As a result of Matt’s experiences with work related stress and work related anxiety he’s been forced to develop himself in the areas of health, fitness and well-being, in addition to the mind and emotional health.

Despite the severity of the stress and anxiety Matt has suffered, he’s never taken any pharmaceutical drugs, visited a doctor seeking relief or treatment or even read a book on the topic of stress or anxiety.

Instead, he either found or created his own mind techniques and physical solutions to shift the way his mind, body and emotions reacted to work related stress and anxiety.

He’s equipped himself with an array of tools or “health hacks” that he calls upon as needed to go from feelings of stress and anxiety to peace, calm and strength.
