Concerned about Workplace Stress?
Are you working in a fast paced and demanding, environment? A workplace full of stress?

Do you sometimes feel like you're spinning your wheels working longer and harder just to stay in place?

Or wonder if you've programmed yourself for success in some areas, and not in others?

Could you really be blocking your own success?

ould workplace stress be causing you to drive with one foot on the brake? Take a quiz to find out!

Quick Stress Busters you can even share with your kids
Use them on a regular basis and you’ll also be rewarded with a flood of creative ideas.  It’s like taking a vitamin pill for your mind. 

First a quick Brain Gym™ trick: 
Ideal for those days when it feels like your office has a revolving door … with one person after another … the phone is constantly ringing (which is probably a good thing) and you have so many thoughts flying around inside your mind feels like the world’s busiest airport at 8:30 on a Monday morning!

Cooks Hook Up is a two minute technique guaranteed to relax and refresh your mind, lower your heart rate and allow ideas to land where you need them. Here’s how:

  1. Cross your ankles.
  2. Stretch your arms straight out in front at shoulder height, with the backs of your hands touching.
  3. Look down and notice which ankle is on top.
  4. Now stack your hands with the matching hand on top (if the right ankle is on top the right hand goes on top.  If the left ankle is on top the left hand goes on top.)
  5. Slide the top hand down and interlock your fingers (I know it is counter intuitive but stay with me.)
  6. Bend your forearms in toward your chest (elbows down) and relax your shoulders.
  7. Check that you are now sitting, ankles crossed, hands interlocked and resting against your chest.
  8. Finally take a deep breath and simply hang out.

After a minute or two, you’ll notice your breathing is shifting lower in your chest, slower and deeper. Two minutes will calm your mind. Clear away the competing facts flying around in there. Let yourself relax and feel the stress drain away. And when you’re done, you'll be able to focus again on what is really important to you.

For more of these powerful mind body tips I'd recommend the book Brain Gym™ For Business, Instant Brain Boosters for On-the-Job Success by Dr. Paul Dennison.
