Stress management tips
Recharge by the sea
The sound of the sea and the waves relax us, reduce stress and thus lay the foundation for well-being and good ideas.
The calming effect of the sound of the sea can also be measured in the brain, because we reorganize our thought processes when we devote ourselves to the sound of the sea.
The effects of sound trigger so-called alpha waves, which are linked to performance as well as to relaxation and serenity.
Water stimulates the recovery system
Do you know that drinking a glass of cold water is a source of refueling.
Consciously swallow every sip.
The swallowing movement activates our recreational nerve, not for nothing do experts recommend a sip of water during current stress.
Cold dampens the sympathetic nervous system, the stimulating part of our nervous system.
The parasympathetic nervous system, which includes the vagus nerve (recovery), becomes active.
Refuel in the office
Many of your colleagues in the office have qualities that perfectly complement your skills.
That’s why you enjoy working together, because you are strong in a team.
When did you tell your colleague in the team which characteristic you particularly appreciate in him/her?
Refueling – also in everyday business life.
Appreciative employee meetings start with the question:
What was good today?
Each person reports what he/she has already experienced positively.
With this positive mindset, you create the basis for appreciative cooperation.
Do you know that when we are stressed, we have 3 types of coping strategies.
-Problem-oriented coping – active problem solving, seeking support, attitude change, or re-evaluation of the situation – Passive problem solving, avoidance, escape or avoidance, or distraction
-Emotion-oriented coping – Regulation of negative emotions, active by seeking support, exercising, or drug use, or passive by self-instruction or denial
-Appraisal-oriented coping – Cognitively reevaluating the relationship in order to more adequately deal with a situation. Viewing stress as a challenge.
Which strategy do you use?
Allowing yourself to feel – actually, I don’t really feel myself.
How deep does your breath go? Does it end in the upper chest area?
We do like Tarzan and tap on the upper chest area (not as hard as in the movie please), right where your “feeling” stops. After about a minute, take a break. What has changed, how deep does your breath go now?
Do you feel the breath in your lower abdomen again?
New energy is there, the blockage is dissolved.
