Stress and Emotional Regulation

Stress and Emotional Regulation | Brain Science and Business | Scoop.it
Have you ever noticed that the more stress in a person's life the more prone they are to strong emotional reactions? I do not mean just amongst those of us who already face challenges with staying ...
Sunil Bhaskaran's insight:

Yes: one powerful tool in combating stress is to distract oneself.  Otherwise, one tends to do what is called rumination: the extreme attention paid to a worrying circumstance e.g. financial worries. One way to distract yourself is to distract yourself with what the future could (or will) look like e.g. a Mission statement or a future / possibility statement.  This enables the brain to focus on creating the future .. rather than recreating (over and over again) the past.

The 20 Minute Morning Routine Guaranteed to Make Your Day Better

The 20 Minute Morning Routine Guaranteed to Make Your Day Better | Brain Science and Business | Scoop.it

You probably already know that exercise is energizing. Researchers at the University of Georgia found that previously sedentary adults who started doing 20 minutes of low- to moderate intensity aerobic exercise three times a week for six weeks reported feeling less fatigued and more energized. The time of day doesn't matter; work out a little, feel a little better. Even five minutes of moderate exercise can create a mood-enhancement effect.

 

 

But one study took a different approach, focusing on the longer-term impact of exercise on mood.

Sunil Bhaskaran's insight:

Exercise releases some great chemicals including BDNF (Brain Derived Neurotrophic Factor) which acts like brain fertilizer to promote neurogenesis: the creation of more neurons.  Exercise obviously also decreases stress in most cases.  It just makes sense to exercise!

Want tomorrow to be different? Want to be in a better mood the whole day? It's easy: Work out early, for about 20 minutes, before you start your day.

Welche positiven Einflüsse "gesunde Führung" hat kann man auch in Studien der Uni St. Gallen nachlesen. Dabei ist es vergleichsweise einfach das körperliche Wohlbefinden zu erzeugen, dass auch Menschenführung leichter und besser macht.

How John F. Kennedy Changed Decision Making for Us All

How John F. Kennedy Changed Decision Making for Us All | Brain Science and Business | Scoop.it

President Kennedy’s redesign of his decision making process has had enormous influence on today’s management thinking on leading teams. The idea of instilling candid debate to avoid groupthink has become a guiding principle in many business school classrooms and boardrooms.

 


Via Kenneth Mikkelsen
Sunil Bhaskaran's insight:

Using candid debate with the leader(s):  We need to make sure that the debate has a clear intention e.g.  managing that the intention of the debate is kept to workability and an intended set of desired outcomes vs. right and wrong.
