mental wellness enables us to relax more, think more clearly, sleep well & we are more resourceful & creative.
this makes it easier for us to tap into our intuition, 'our common sense'. this harmonised way of thinking helps us plan, manage and perform at our best for the ‘new normal’ that has yet to be decided. living in a stress response state effects our metabolism and our immunity which doesn't allow for the body to naturally recover if we keep releasing a tsunami of cortisol and adrenaline into our nervous system, living in a stress response state.
as humans we are hard wired with a stress response to keep us safe. however due to the pandemic we have craved safety and assurance. we have focused on the news more than usual to give us the insights which daily have been so uncertain. coupled with having our world turned upside down this sets off the ants (automatic negative thoughts) and over time this stress response can cause anxiety, back pain, overwhelm, stress, social anxiety, paranoia, anger, over eating, over reacting, poor cognitive responses, poor decision making. all of which can cause illness and as we know anxiety, depression & stress are leading causes of absenteeism in the work place.
iamlovingkindnessnetwork help's mitigate the effects of stress response thinking by calibrating the mind daily and this does wonders for work morale, productivity, creative thinking and creates a sustainable, resilient and joyful working environment.
