Week 5 – Stability Zones – Building your Resilience
How many times have you had “one of those days”?
You know, when it seems like everything and everyone is against you. Problem after problem, everything is out of your control and it just goes on and on and on…
At the end of “one of those days”, it’s a huge relief when it gets to 5:30pm. Perhaps you’ve even been counting down the minutes. You walk through the door to your house or you go the gym, or you meet with a friend – suddenly, the stress disappears. Or it at least seems more manageable.
You’re surrounded by your comforts, whether that’s being in your own home, surrounded by people you love or doing something you enjoy. You can begin to relax, and the stress of work is tomorrow’s problem.
In Week 5 of the 12 Weeks of Wellbeing, we look at “Stability Zones” and your exercise this week is to identify them and bring them into your work life so during these moments of high-pressure, overwhelm or when you’re just having “one of those days”, you can manage your stress levels and be a happier, more resilient you for the rest of the day.
