Reduce Stress Levels and Increase Your Willpower Using These 3 Techniques | Mind & Body Best Practices | Scoop.it

Most of us are under a constant stress. There are so many things that take away from our peace of mind: health issues, financial troubles, responsibilities at work, relationship dramas, and so on. 

 

We all know by now that stress is very detrimental to our health and can cause some serious problems.

 

However, did you know that stress also destroys your willpower, and therefore keeps you from achieving your goals?


It may sound bleak but don't stress too much because there are some things that you can do to help reduce your stress levels and increase your willpower.

To much stress is a killer. Just enough stress is what gets me out of bed.

Study: Burnout and empathy in primary care: three hypotheses

Study: Burnout and empathy in primary care: three hypotheses | Mind & Body Best Practices | Scoop.it

In the last 10 years, a growing literature about empathy in primary care indicates that, for both patient and clinician, empathy helps to improve many aspects of health care practice and patient satisfaction.

 

Wensing ndicated that humaneness, exploring the needs of patients, and good communication skills are some of the high priorities that patients expect from their GP.

 

Cape showed that doctor empathy coded by external observers was positively correlated with listening interactions and patient involvement.

 

Vedsted and Heje found that patients tended to recommend their GP to others if they judged them as ‘empathic’.

 

Mercer showed a positive relationship both between GP empathy and patient enablement at the consultation, and between patient enablement and changes in the main symptom and well-being evaluated 3 months after the consultation.

 

Finally, Verheul investigated the impact of a warm and empathic consultation compared to a cold and formal consultation on the certainty of the outcome. The greatest beneficial effects of empathic communication on stress reduction and expectancies were observed when it was combined with a positive expectations style.

 

To preserve effective empathy in care, the health provider must be in a positive frame of mind and not affected by stress or burnout. Burnout occurs when individuals feel emotionally overwhelmed by the demands of their job. Physicians in particular are frequently overloaded with the demands of caring for sick patients within the constraints of time and resources.

9 Yoga Poses You Can Do In Your Bed

9 Yoga Poses You Can Do In Your Bed | Mind & Body Best Practices | Scoop.it
Good news for yogis and sleep-enthusiasts alike: You can take your practice to bed.

 

And there is good reason to do so: The ancient practice of yoga promotes a bounty of mind and body benefits, including things like strength and flexibility or stress relief and even a sunnier disposition.


"People underestimate the power of those few minutes before we get out of bed and rush into our day," says Vyda Bielkus, co-founder of Boston's Health Yoga Life. "In those moments, we can set up some clear intentions and choices."
