Beyond the Stress of Success - Access Your Thriving Zone
Genuine enthusiasm...real feeling of accomplishment...sense of satisfaction and fun. Welcome to your thriving zone!
How do you gain quick access? Simple...take 3 easy steps.
Pause to Refresh...Given the relentless demands of nonstop 24/7 lifestyles, it is easy to forget we are human beings, not human doings. Yet performance experts agree. Constant doing without real downtime impairs our ability to perform at our best. And this also keeps us from being in our thriving zone.
Need proven and manageable ways to incorporate regular pause-to-refresh intervals in your work day? Try these:
Research indicates that winners instinctively and consciously take regular intervals of time, no matter how short, to de-stress and refocus when they are engaged in intense competition or pressure-cooker assignments. So if you cannot control the demands of your work, control the moments you take to intentionally rest and restore your energy.
Think Thriving Thoughts...Negative thinking is unproductive. It burns up considerable bandwidth, slows forwared momentum, and drains energy in the process. So why not focus on positive outcomes with optimistic realism?
Successful people spent time thinking thriving thoughts. You can too!
Notice how much better you feel. The more you practice having and acting on thriving thoughts, the more you will find yourself "in the zone" and enjoying it.
Re-energize in Thriving Environments...The right environments support you in being your best self. So it is important to know what environments of people, places, and activities are right for you. Make a promise to renew your energy in thriving environments. And then keep that promise to yourself.
What happens to us in thriving environments is we reconnect with our internal rhythms and experience the ease of being in a thriving zone.
So just let yourself practice, practice, practice. Pause to Refresh...Think Thriving Thoughts...and Re-energize in Thriving Environments. Then you'll find yourself slipping without effort into your thriving zone.

Are You Too Stressed?
Music Therapy: Can Music Really Soothe The Savage Beast?
It has long been suggested that "music soothes the savage beast." But is this true? And if it is, does this have any implication where humans are concerned? The answer, apparently, is yes. To illustrate this, researchers point to the different physiological changes that take place within the human body in response to different sounds and noises. A loud noise that shatters the silence sets the human heart racing and stimulates a rush of adrenaline that prepares you for flight. In contrast a soft, soothing sound helps us to relax.

Stress Reduction and Sacred Moments
"The great lesson from the true mystics, from the Zen Monks, and now also from the Humanistic and Transpersonal psychologists ? that the sacred is in the ordinary, that it is to be found in one's daily life, in one's neighbors, friends, and family, in one's back yard, and that travel may be a flight from confronting the sacred ? this lesson can be easily lost. To be looking elsewhere for miracles is to me a sure sign of ignorance that everything is miraculous." - Abraham Maslow

Worry: Do We Have A Choice?
As Montaigne said, "he who fears he will suffer, already suffers because of his fears." We pay a huge cost for worrying, physically, mentally and emotionally; yet research shows that it affects most of us in some way. So what is it? From its original meaning of 'to strangle', worry has evolved over the centuries to our modern definition 'mental distress or agitation, resulting from concern, usually from something impending or anticipated'. It is constantly dwelling on and evaluating possible consequences and outcomes of past or future bad events.
HELP! Im Working with a Baby!!

Most of us are trying to balance work, home, and a family life. We tend not to accept the early symptoms of burnout and carry on our daily lives.
