• High Arousal Level
  • Lack of Concentration

When we are stressed, we are not productive.

The brain is shut down because we don’t have to think in flight or fight mode.

After the immediate stressful event, however, thinking is still slowed down

– because we think about what we could do differently

– how we would have reacted better in the acute stress situation

– because we are still preoccupied with the emotions that the stressful event has triggered in us

– because we are actually exhausted and, the stress level remains high for a long time, even if the trigger has been over for a while.

So, if you want to do a good job or keep the productivity of your employees at a high level, you would be well advised to take care of effective DE-stress quickly!
