Get Rid of Workplace Stress

Breathe, Stretch & Move: Get Rid of Workplace Stress
 
 
Break the cycle of tension and exhaustion in the workplace and learn how to have greater energy through correct breathing.Workers today are becoming more sedentary. We are thinking more and using our bodies less - we communicate all day with a computer screen, becoming so absorbed that our shoulders tense, our breathing changes, we hold our breath too much and, by the end of the day, we're exhausted.Extensive research has linked dysfunctional breathing patterns to problems such as occupational overuse and RSI. The main risks are: * asymmetry in body activity, eg use of mouse in one hand* use of upper shoulder muscles in typing and turning at the same time* breath holding or very shallow breathing during movements* lack of awareness of breath holding* lack of awareness of body bracingThe exercises in this book will help you restore energy-efficient breathing and improve your energy levels, productivity and work pace. You will learn to run on natural not nervous energy, and your thought patterns will become calm but alert. You will reduce your stress levels naturally and without drugs.The book includes a number of crucial exercises specifically for high computer users, and more general exercises for all sedentary workers. Then there are exercises to energise you and to reduce anxiety before presentations, meetings and job interviews.Authors Dinah Bradley and Tania Clifton-Smith — the 'queens of calm '— are world experts on breathing pattern disorders. As practising physiotherapists they have an in-depth understanding of the physiological and musculoskeletal problems caused by poor breathing.
