Breath at Work
Conscious Breathing - The most effective and time-efficient stress release system
Having worked in an Investment Bank, I know just too well that time is precious and pressure is imminent. In most jobs, we will have stress but it is key how we respond to it as too much or chronic stress sabotages our health.
Recent studies also confirm that nearly half of our time we are distracted and mind wandering mainly through emotions, typically self-focused and in a negative mood. A wandering mind is an unhappy mind – and obviously quite an unproductive one.
It’s time to take a deep breath – NOW and whenever possible! Or simply reconnect to your breath during meetings or calls and feel what more awareness can do for you. Because as you practice conscious breathing even for a few minutes, you are accessing the two hemispheres of the brain bringing them into synchronization, resulting in:
- Increased resilience and stronger immune system
- Balanced calmness through higher self-awareness
- Expanded emotional intelligence, engagement and creativity
- Enhanced cognitive performance such as concentration, memory and processing speed
Through simple breathing exercises, you can release stress within minutes. This will support your focus, lighten up your mood and improve your general well-being.
