Archive for the ‘workplace productivity’ Category

Mindfulness is defined as paying attention and being fully in the moment.  Multi-tasking cannot be included in this definition, as most people cannot fully focus on more than one thing at a time.  The influence of technology in our fast paced world has often caused the problem of lack of focus on a particular task.  This has translated into the modern workplace, especially those who are not used to the fastest paced technology. Those used to it, mostly millennials, often inadvertently miss important details. In our modern often chaotic world, frustration levels rise quickly, giving way to stress and anger.  Impatience and frustration often go hand-in-hand.  A workplace culture of mindfulness, geared to all generations and cultures can be beneficial to all.

Another tool that is helpful in focusing as well as to reduce stress and anger is EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques), also known as tapping.  It is recognized in the field of Energy Psychology and has become globally popular.  The physical tapping on meridian points releases cortisol, a stress hormone and sends serotonin – a feel good hormone – to the section of the brain dealing with emotions, the amygdala. Most of us are not born with the recommended amount of serotonin for optimal functioning and it may be found as an ingredient in some anti-depressants.

Here are a few additional tips to help focus in the workplace:

  • Stay on task by not reading emails throughout the day; have two specific times to check and designate some to be addressed at a future time
  • Keep cell phone sound off
  • Take frequent stretch breaks, being “mindful of physical toll of computer and phones.
  • Keep a “worry list” to address late afternoon each day for ten minutes.

Life throws many curved balls – meant to be intercepted . I’ve been hearing the term often lately, from clients and background summer sounds of TV baseball announcers…

Successful interception of life’s curve balls takes clear vision, focus, intention and correct action. When curved balls are directed at you (or it simply feels that way) you may need extra help-guidance and new strategies to go in a different direction, become unstuck, release tension, let go of past mistakes and foster forgiveness (to yourself as well as others), sometimes within a short timeline. EFT Emotional Freedom Technique is a forerunner in this field and when combined with Stress Management – a homerun!

I am facilitating two workshops /beginner trainings for EFT (Healthcare Professionals & Educators welcome!) in Nassau and Suffolk Counties: Westbury 10/18 my office and My New Spalon At Beach Club Estate, Lake Ronkonkoma. www.mynewspalon.com 10/19.

  • Be Authentic  

    To be what we are, and to become what we are capable of becoming, is the only end of  life. ~Spinoza

Keep your goals in alignment with your capabilities-talents and needs; keep it real!

The more authentic your goal is, the higher the probability of it being successful! And,

-When you are authentic, you  know yourself and celebrate who you are

-When you are authentic you can be bold and express yourself well

-When you are authentic, it is easier to transform your fear
