A busy lifestyle in a modern urban corporate environment can be a nightmare for the subtle physiology of the body, mind, emotions and lifestyle. Highly stressed workplace environments take their toll so here we look at some of the challenges, and how workplace wellness initiatives can help.
There’s often a strange irony for me when I treat and teach people in corporate positions who are walking through my door wracked with stress and the many corresponding complaints that it creates in the body-mind; fatigue, insomnia, digestive problems and strained relationships.
So what’s going on here? Why do so many of us suffer from such stress and lack of nourishment from our chosen job. What I see a lot, is rather than someone’s job being an extension of their inner passions and innate abilities, is that going to work is more like going to battle!
“I often say that true achievement is in balancing ALL elements of your life, not just your perception of achieving at work which is a common pattern. It’s the place where you can look across all aspects of your life, social, personal, professional, home and your state of health and wellbeing and think yes, all is well, I am achieving as a well rounded human being!”
