While evaluating Transforming Stress to Joy AIS president Dr. Daniel L. Kirsch met with Dr. Rozina, as she prefers to be called, and asked her why she developed this course. Dr. Rozina said her goal is to help 1,000,000 people avoid having to become her patients. This is precisely the mission of The American Institute of Stress; to help millions of people recognize their stressors and how they react to them so they can reshape their psychophysiological responses to avoid maintaining a constant state of arousal. Or in plain English, to stop making mountains out of molehills. We know that stress is a causative factor in many, if not most diseases, and a contributing factor to all. Dr. Rozina can help you avoid or postpone sickness by teaching you to evaluate and change the way you see things, and how you react to them. She will walk you through what stress is and how to change the outcome to lead a more peaceful, even joyous life by investing just 15-20 minutes a day for 3 weeks.

As a psychiatrist and mom who works with busy patients, Dr Rozina developed strategies for her patients and herself that are powerful and most of all practical for busy people.

With almost two decades of research and experience, she has combined the most effective, simple, and quick ways to reprogram your responses to stress that don’t require you to completely change your lifestyle.

And this course doesn’t just stop at showing you how to boost your resilience to manage challenges without feeling stressed. Stress to Joy shows you how to develop habits that will enhance your happiness and bring you joy.

“Thank you, Dr. Rozina, for helping me balance my emotional bank account!  As a registered nurse and student, I’m no stranger to stress. Your online course has made me rethink about how I react to stressful situations.  With heart and humor you’ve shown me how to relax, sleep better, prioritize amid seemingly overwhelming choices, and let go of what I can’t control. Little by little I’m developing a “wise mind” to act more in line with my life’s purpose. These teachings require practice, but already I’m living more mindfully, self-aware, and reflecting love in my relationships.  May you always be happy and grateful.” — KD
