Effective stress relief through developing body, mind and soul 

(Part two – mind and soul)

This is the second in a two part series highlighting the devastating effects that stress can have on us all and hopefully offering some solutions. Stress generally occurs following trauma of some sort, or just sheer pressure, as is often experienced in the workplace. This is why employers should especially be cognisant of what stress employees may be suffering and how they may be affected by it.

As I expressed in part one of this series, I believe that the healing of, or at least coping with stress, can be achieved, but only holistically. One has to take into account that stress affects us physically, mentally and in many cases even spiritually. I firmly believe therefore that effective stress relief is achieved through developing body, mind and soul.

We have dealt with the beneficial effects on the body through the practice of Pilates, a great core muscular developer and TRE, a wonderful Trauma Release Exercises therapy. To drive home my point of holistic stress relief, both these physical programs are linked to brain and mind improvement and development too.

Now to the mind and soul – let’s start with the mind and 2 areas of practice that I believe can greatly assist with stress.

Life coaching

Something I practice with individuals and groups in the workplace is Life Coaching. Essentially it is the training of the mind to let go of negative thoughts and learn to develop a positive approach and set attainable goals. This type of confidence can greatly assist with stress, as stress in the workplace in particular is closely aligned with feelings of inadequacy under pressure.

Additional benefits are numerous and include the improvement of partnerships, dispelling negative outlooks, acceptance of and trusting in yourself. Most importantly and relative to this article, is that it also teaches the power of mind and body connection.

QEC (Quantum Energy Coaching)

Staying with this body and mind connection, QEC, based in neuroscience, is a sort of gym for the mind. I work closely with my clients to generate profound and liberating behavioural change through a combination of Gestalt therapy, focussed intention, Neuroplasticity and Kinesiology, amongst others.

It’s important to note that although the effects can be profound, changing thought and behavioural patterns to replace limiting negative ones, you are fully conscious at all times and the process is quick and effortless.

From a mental point of view there is synergy between QEC and the trauma release therapy of TRE, as it focusses on improved heath, mental health (including stress) and self-worth in general. 

Soul Plan

Some find this a little left of field, but I have (through first-hand experience) seen the benefits of this little known practice of connecting the birth name, time and circumstances with the destiny of the soul and hence our own destiny.

Knowing our life’s blue print, talents and strengths assists us to have a more purposeful life and set appropriate, attainable goals. More on Soul Plan can also be found in articles I have written and on my website. The unique thing about this one is that I do not need to be present to facilitate it and it can be done entirely online.

Holistic health neutralises stress

As you can see, at self and more all that we do physically and mentally compliment and augment each other to give a totally holistic approach to self-development and self-improvement.
