Stress levels are at an all time high… The pace of life is becoming just too hectic for most people. Stress levels are at an all time high and there’s never been a greater need for people to find a balance between work and personal life to avoid impending personal disaster. The struggle between dealing with financial pressures, time management, work-family balance and low self-esteem are draining our vital energy levels and affecting our vibrancy, creativity, effectiveness and, most importantly, our health.
Just imagine the impact this could have on Health and Safety issues! When you have a workforce of people who work in fear of losing their job or find it difficult to visualise future prospects; when daily they are faced with a plethora of tension and situations that increases anxiety levels, irritation from co-workers, endless demands of their attention, time pressures, projects, meetings, messages and overwhelm in every department. Is it any wonder they lack motivation?
The actual work itself isn’t creating the stress – you go into the job prepared to work hard for a decent living. You are trained to perform a certain way, to create a specific result and to be a part of a team. Its all the pressure you give yourself through your diminished focus and the way you react to everything that is going on around you… it’s the way you handle, or don’t handle the work and the people you encounter at work that creates the problems… you anticipate that things could and should be different, but don’t know how to change, so you hang on to the assumed norm.
And that’s a major part of the problem. When you hold onto the idea that you can and should do everything, and if you don’t the world in which you live and work will collapse; when you don’t know how to change so you accept the outcome you expect as the norm; you continue to go through the motions of coming to work feeling you are going nowhere, going home at the end of the day frustrated for having accomplished nothing seemingly worthwhile… So what’s the answer?
The solution is really quite simple… It’s letting go of the limiting beliefs and negative emotions.
Before you can ‘let go” first you have to become aware that a problem exists in the first place.
This awareness or mindfulness is how you can combat stress at work, also known as The Tao.
It’s when you can bring your mind, body and environment into harmony and make them work as one. It’s all the little things you say and do, day in and day out, that all add up and make a difference to the way you ultimately think, act and behave. This greatly affects your health, vitality and vibrancy as well as your self-esteem, awareness and productivity.
Letting go of the limiting beliefs that are keeping you in the negative downward spiral of hopelessness isn’t always easy, it takes practice and persistence to adopt new success habits.
The Tao of life at Work is a progressive learning process that helps you to re-focus on creating results. When this state of mindfulness is present you can perform effectively and productively under pressure but without the anger, frustration and stress. Work becomes challenging and goals become achievable once again!
The Tao is a learning adventure that will expose you and your key leaders to understand how to take themselves and their teams from potential to performance. How to maximise their ability to harness the power of focus and improve the way they respond to daily events.
