A digital guide from the editors of Mindful
Each of our bodies holds stress a little differently. Maybe you wake up with a headache from grinding your teeth or there's a knot of tightness in your neck or shoulders. Over time, stress can take a toll on your health—luckily mindfulness can help shift away from the damage of stress and help you find calm.
In this digital guide, we invite you to practice tuning into your body and mind so you can recognize the early signs of stress and, with awareness, choose how you want to move forward.
In this special guide, you’ll learn how to:
• Calm your mind during stressful times
• Strengthen your focus
• Navigate difficult emotions at work
And much more!
Please note: Our Beyond Burnout guide is a digital download (PDF). Upon purchase, you will receive a link from which to download your PDF file.
A Mindful Response to Burnout: Replenish Your Body and Mind
4 audio meditations with Shalini Bahl-Milne
1. Check In with Your Body (14-minute practice)
We need energy for everything—to get stuff done, to meet our responsibilities, to have a fulfilling life. We need energy, and yet when we keep going and never stop, we deplete this important resource within us.
2. Turn Toward Your Emotions (15-minute practice)
Have you ever wondered why you feel exhausted at the end of the day? Of course, there are physical reasons for feeling exhausted, like lack of sleep or not enough movement or rest or hydration or nourishment. But even on days when you don't do physically challenging work, you may still feel tired.
There's another big reason why we feel exhausted, and that is our high-intensity emotions. So not just the unpleasant ones like anxiety or fear, but even the pleasant ones, like excitement or elation. These can be depleting as well.
The idea is not that we should never experience high-intensity emotions. Rather, the invitation is that we turn towards our emotions so that we can choose how to channel them in a way that meets our goals without burning us out.
3. Reconnect with Your Senses (14-minute practice)
We have limited cognitive resources that we use for thinking, planning, strategizing, and willpower. If we keep drawing from that pool of resources without replenishing them, we can begin to feel depleted, in that our brain gets sluggish, and we don't make good decisions.
In this practice, we're going to replenish our mental energy by returning to our senses, literally. When we use our senses, like touching, seeing, hearing, tasting, listening, it's in those moments our thinking mind gets to rest.
4. Act on What’s Important (14-minute practice)
Research shows that we feel the most energized when we find purpose and meaning in what we are doing. But, on the other hand, we can feel depleted when we don't take time to do activities that are inspiring or important to us. So, in this practice, we're going to create some space and time to reconnect with ourselves and ask ourselves the question, “What's most important to me?”
