Stress Management Tips & Techniques - Help with Stress Video
Hello. My name is Mark Walsh from Integration Training. This is a short video about managing stress. I worked a lot with very stressed people on different organizations. It seems like everyone's stressed today. I've mind stressed too to manage. These are few simple tips and tools, things you can actually use that will help you be happier, get more done and have better relationships with people around you. This is old stuff my mum told me. It's things like getting enough sleep that might be 8 hrs, it might be more or less. Eating healthy food. Regular exercise. Not drinking too much. Not smoking. Those kinds of things. You know these, right? That's a good place to start if people adjusted to that they'd be a lot less stressed. It might mean right now making a commitment for example to going to the gym three times a week, so, you could phone your friend tell him you're gonna do that. Tell him to check up on you and offer him a check for a hundred pounds if he don't do that. So, that's the basics. It's not all in external things that make us stressed its actually how we think about them. So, if you have a thought like my boss is a total nightmare and he always gets on me. Change your thinking around that. You're in control of your thinking. So, it could be, you could ask yourself. Well, is that true? Is he always a nightmare? Well, no, not always or you could ask yourself, is there another perspective on that? So, you might say "Yeah my boss is unhappy and they need some support at the moment. That's why they're acting the way they are." So, by social animals, you can make yourself a lot less stressed. If you keep your environment fairly neat and ordered that would help. It could be simple things like getting a plant for your office. Getting some time outside in natural light each day, nature and by the river in London or walking in the park. Social support is rarely important to people we're annual filing fees. Yeah we need empathy so listen to other people to help them with their stress. If you're a manager, definitely do that. If you have a partner, do that and build that culture in your team, in your department, in your company, organization of empathy and listening. That makes a big difference to peoples' stress. So, take a moment to become aware that you have a body. Feel your feet, wiggle your toes. Become aware of the weight of your body. Scan your attention up your legs. Become aware of your breathing. Notice you have a back. Some people tend to get into their computers as they work and a coned back can help. So, you're aware that you have a body and you're breathing. Next, balance your body. So, put your feet flat on the floor. So, you're grounded yet upright sense of rising slowly from top of your head. Reaching out to the sides of your attention and balanced front and back. Next, relax your center line. So, relax your eyes if you're doing this. Let Your tongue be loose in your mouth if you're holding tension in your jaw and let your abdominal muscules be relaxed. That way your diaphragm can move down and you can breathe in a relaxed way. Take a hand and put it just below your belly button and take two or three deep breaths. So, your tummy goes out as you breathe in. Little bit of mindfulness there So, a great way of dealing with stress. So, those were just a few very basic tools for managing stress early. I hope that has helped you. If you want more information you can find us at integrationtraining.co.uk or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. We help organizations of all different kinds about with their stress. So, they can get all done, have more fun, have better relationships, have less sick days and stop time.

Be creative: The best ad
Be motivated: The carrot, the egg, and the coffee bean
A young woman went to her mother and told her about her life and how things were so hard for her. She did not know how she was going to make it and wanted to give up. She was tired of fighting and struggling.
It seemed that, as one problem was solved, a new one arose. Her mother took her to the kitchen. She filled three pots with water and placed each on a high fire. Soon the pots came to a boil. In the first, she placed carrots, in the second she placed eggs, and in the last she placed ground coffee beans.
She let them sit and boil, without saying a word. In about twenty minutes, she turned off the burners. She fished the carrots out and placed them in a bowl. She pulled the eggs out and placed them in a bowl. Then she ladled the coffee out and placed it in a bowl. Turning to her daughter, she asked, "Tell me, what do you see?"
"Carrots, eggs, and coffee," the young woman replied. The mother brought her closer and asked her to feel the carrots. She did and noted that they were soft. She then asked her to take an egg and break it. After pulling off the shell, she observed the hard-boiled egg. Finally, she asked her to sip the coffee. The daughter smiled as she tasted its rich aroma. The daughter then asked, "What does it mean, mother?"
Her mother explained that each of these objects had faced the same adversity – boiling water – but each reacted differently. The carrot went in strong, hard and unrelenting. However, after being subjected to the boiling water, it softened and became weak.
The egg had been fragile. Its thin outer shell had protected its liquid interior. But, after sitting through the boiling water, its inside became hardened! The ground coffee beans were unique, however. After they were in the boiling water, they had changed the water.
"Which are you?" the mother asked her daughter. "When adversity knocks on your door, how do you respond? Are you a carrot, an egg, or a coffee bean?" Think of this: Which am I? Am I the carrot that seems strong but, with pain and adversity, do I wilt and become soft and lose my strength? Am I the egg that starts with a malleable heart, but changes with the heat? Did I have a fluid spirit but, after a death, a breakup, or a financial hardship, does my shell look the same, but on the inside am I bitter and tough with a stiff spirit and a hardened heart? Or am I like the coffee bean? The bean actually changes the hot water, the very circumstance that brings the pain. When the water gets hot, it releases the fragrance and flavour.
If you are like the bean, when things are at their worst, you get better and change the situation around you. When the hours are the darkest and trials are their greatest, do you elevate to another level? How do you handle adversity? Are you a carrot, an egg, or a coffee bean?
