How are you doing today?
How you are doing today will affect your productivity at work. In a calm, happy, and energized state of mind your energy will also energize the people you lead. Frustrated, anxious, tired and stressed states of mind "are detrimental in the long term, especially to relationships."
Whilst you may feel that state of mind is something that just happens to you, the article below outlines four useful best practices to manage your state of mind actively:
- Thoughts and feelings
- External environment
- Health and well-being
May you be well!
Don, a senior vice president for sales at a global manufacturing company, wakes up late, scrambles to get showered and dressed, has an argument with his teenage daughter over breakfast, then gets stuck in traffic on the way to work and realizes he will be late for his first meeting. Donna, a marketing executive, wakes at 6 for a quick spin on the exercise bike, takes a moment to stretch and relax, then quickly gets herself ready, dresses and feeds her two kids before walking them to the bus, then catches the train to the office. Which executive will have a more productive day at work? That depends on whether Don—who’s had the more difficult morning—is able to manage his state of mind.
