Stress may be a normal state everyday for people who do not manage their time and efforts well, or to people who receive continuous bombardment from their inconsiderate bosses, which may result in negative productivity in the workplace. Stress heightens our response towards a situation. It tells us whether we should fight or run. Now, because of too much stress, our body receives an overload of adrenaline, which can lead to agitation and hyperactivity.
In order to be calm and have a better approach to the cause of stress, a good option for a person may be meditation. Here are several advantages one may be able to get from meditation:
- Heart rate slows down.
- Breathing rate slows down.
- Blood pressure normalizes.
- Sweating lessens.
- Adrenaline gland produces less cortisol.
- Immune system improves.
These are just some of the benefits you may be able to get from meditation. Therefore, the next time you feel too much has been placed on your shoulders and you feel like you want to explode, meditate instead. When you are calm, it is easier to see solutions to the work you are facing. Pause, relax, close your eyes and breathe slowly. Go ahead and start thinking of relaxing situations, such as a cool breeze on a hot day, or sitting under a shady tree. You will surely be able to overcome the stress and things will be better, especially when it comes to your productivity in the workplace.
