Healthy Stress in the Workplace
Drawing on Dr. Orloff's New York Times bestselling book, Emotional Freedom, she discusses how to harness the biology of your emotions in order to deal with stress in a healthy way. A revelation of the twenty first century science is that anxiety and anger aren't just feelings. Nor are calmness and contentment. All emotional reactions trigger biological reactions that shape health just as distinctly as diet and exercise. Dr. Orloff will discuss how when you change your emotional reaction to a stressful situation you change your biological reaction as well. This allows you to turn off your flight or flight stress response and stimulate your relaxation response and the endorphins, the feel good chemicals that get released. Learning how to react with a healthy emotional response to any situation will overtime have a cumulative effect on your brain’s health and overall well-being. These health benefits will help to stimulate creative thinking, boost productivity and enhance employee performance.
