Tips and stories to add value to you and your organisation
Here is a simple tip, to help us think clearly, when we are under pressure – we can get up and walk around our chair and then sit down again.
Doing this enables us to ‘break state’, which means we shake ourselves loose from the psychological shape we are in and can free up a new direction to think in.
Changing our posture changes what our brain is doing.
It’s a bit like watching two people with their arms crossed keep arguing – their body language seems to promote conflict and until they change posture, they will still be fighting.
If you’re not able to get up and move, you can shift position in your chair by moving so that your feet are flat on the floor and you’re sitting up, with a straight back.
So, this week, once you’ve read this, have a go at breaking state and see how you feel.
