Mind Mapping by Tony Buzan



  • Stress is a natural instinct (fight or flight).
  • Stress (incl. triggers and ability to cope) is unique to every individual.
  • Prevention is better than cure.
  • Education – Pinpoint cause and effect (Learn signs and how to react).
  • How to make the emotional tangible?
  • Bespoke solutions – there is no one-size-fits-all solution.
  • A toolbox of tools is needed.
  • Design as an intervention.
  • How can you help someone who is unaware of or denies stress?
  • Does awareness of your own stress help in coping?
  • How to rate stress?
  • Who will interpret this stress data?
  • How to prioritise stress data (What criteria are needed?)
  • Testing as a way to monitor and control stress levels.
  • Can we accurately predict stress levels? ie. Stress Forecasting / Profiling.
  • Environmental factors influence our emotions.
  • How might an environment adapt in reaction to changes in stress levels?
  • Can others within the environment sense stress? e.g. dogs smell fear.
  • Can we enhance these signals?
  • Can we alter / interrupt these signals? e.g. stress reset.
  • Stress is a biochemical response.
  • Melatonin and Seratonin levels are intrinsically linked to mood.
  • Are we able to use natural biochemical triggers e.g. sunlight, to influence mood and reverse stress ?
  • The perception of the word is negative – are new terminology needed?
