Ever wondered how rest can be a strategy for performance?
In business, rest is many times left to the care of one’s private space, outside of the office - during evenings and weekends. In the office, behind one's screen, and while collaborating with others the tendency is to perform, achieve, and keep the energies high. Little do we know the power in rest and surrender for continuous and assertive team work. The ability to deal with difficult situations, developing emotional intelligence, empathy, having the ability to negotiate with others and recognising diversity within the team are skills that can be developed with an awareness on our feelings and sensations of stability.
Feeling safe, assertive, having ownership and responsibility on challenges one takes, and responsibility over our collaborations, requires deep work. Both in the body and the mind. Because our primary reactive responses come from the body. And knowing first our body, clears the mind from negative emotions that spiral negative actions.
In this brand new episode I’m exploring qualities of surrender and power through movement practices that give access to this felt sense of Stability. Join me again with Melanie Genssler as we take you through a conversation on where stability is found and how change happens once we tap into power and surrender. I invite you to explore movements that give you this feeling of stability, at work with your colleagues, before, during, or after a meeting.
Note change. Note the awareness in your team, note the energy shifting towards motivation. And note growth.
It could be a different strategy to find energy and motivation, which you and your team take to anywhere.
This is the third episode in this collaboration between Movement is My Constant and Integrative Health Guide @integrativehealthguide by Melanie Genssler.
We combine knowledge from movement and health to be applied to work environments and teams, in order to improve communication, team work, and impact positively the strategies needed for change.
