Corporate America is struggling. But I don’t really need to tell you that. Because chances are very high, that you are one of those feeling the incredible strain of stress at work:
Recent reports show that 94% of workers report feeling stress at work.
Stress, anxiety, and depression cost the global economy around $1 trillion in lost productivity.
63% of U.S. workers report they're ready to quit their job to avoid work-related stress.
The costs of $1 Trillion don’t even start to speak to the cost to mental & physical health, retention at work, and the cost of replacing employees.
As a travel company that uses adventure in nature as a tool, we find that when in nature, humans are less stressed. Nature is scientifically proven to emit energy that lowers stress and optimizes your brain waves for learning.
Scientific studies show that the human brain reaches its ultimate potential for health and wellness when it resonates with the Earth’s 7.83-hertz frequency. Staying in sync with the Earth’s natural frequency can positively affect physical and mental health, daily performance and promote an overall sense of well-being.
But studies show that frequencies emitted from modern technology like electrical appliances, TVs, mobile phones and Wi-Fi, are interfering with the body’s ability to stay in sync with the Earth’s natural vibrations.
This interference can negatively affect the body’s immune system, energy levels and interfere with sleep quality. It could be one of the reasons why so many of us are often feeling stressed and anxious.
While not everyone can be an outdoor travel company with natural benefits of stress relief, there are some ways that you can help boost the energy where you are.
f you haven’t found ways to incorporate nature into your work space, no matter how little, we highly recommend it. Some of our favorite suggestions are listed below:
Live Plants: bring in any variety of plants, trees, even small containers of herbs
Nature Sounds: On your phone or a sound machine, play soothing nature sounds quietly in the background.
Sun lamps work great on desks and can positively impact your body’s regulation of melatonin, a hormone that helps control your sleep-wake cycle, as well as serotonin, which helps regulate your mood by relaying signals in your brain.
Fresh air such as an open window if possible, even if it’s chilly, for a few minutes it is so refreshing!
Aromatherapy diffuser that smells of cedar, pine, or ocean, but please research the ingredients carefully as many can be toxic for your health!
Photos of nature, something that you connect with. Maybe a photo you took, or somewhere you want to go.
