Work, Stress and Conflict
Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it – Steve Jobs. Are you looking for a promotion? Are you feeling stressed and overwhelmed in the workplace? Or do you want strategies to manage everyday performance at work?
The average person spends 90,000 hours at work over their lifetime. That sounds overwhelming – so let’s at least acknowledge that your relationship with your work is vital for your mental health. Conflict in the workplace can consequently cause cascading effects on your personal life including;
- feelings of hopelessness
- poor motivation
- lowered self-esteem
- feelings of victimisation
- depressed mood
We want to assist you in developing skills that can combat confronting situations. We can problem solve your ideas about what work is best for you and your health. Reach out and explore a new perspective. How can mindfulness change my brain? MRI scans show that with just eight weeks of regular mindfulness meditation, the cortex becomes thicker and activity in the amygdala decreases, giving us better control over our thoughts, emotions, and how we function in the world. Be inspired by your own capabilities. Learn more about your mind and how you can cultivate safety, regulation and calm within. We see clients every day gain better control of their distressing emotions, by challenging their negative thoughts, learning how to self sooth, and become experts in their own wellbeing.
