Imagine a situation where you're working at your desk, feeling a bit drained, restlessly shifting in your chair, but wanting to make progress on your work project. What do you? Grab another cup of coffee? Take a walk around the office? Or just bite the bullet and keep working? Now imagine a more embodied approach to work. One in which you understand that your dip in energy could be remedied with some energizing breath exercises, and your restlessness can be remedied by some self-massage techniques for the lower back. Maybe you have a therapy ball or tennis ball to roll out tight muscles against your desk chair. You are more focused and at ease at work because you feel like you have the tools to support your whole self. As a massage therapy and anatomy teacher, I help people understand their bodies through body awareness exercises, self-massage, and mindfulness practices. These practices are simple, engaging and effective, and can help you and your clients embrace a more holistic approach to the workday.
The human brain is extraordinarily capable. Its capacity for development is impressive. Our brains, however, are only one part of our bodies. Even the best brains in the business struggle with anxiety, distracting pain, and tension. By capitalizing on the full-body approach to work, we will be better-suited to move forward into the future, whatever developments or setbacks it may present.
In ATD's new Capability Model, this presentation will help you to build your personal capability.
