When you’re stuck in the middle of something it’s hard to see a way out, or indeed, to get a proper feel for what’s going on.
A change in perspective, viewing things from a distance, can help enormously.
For example, studies show that when people are on holiday they feel enabled to make important life decisions, with addressing the work life balance a top concern.
Putting a physical distance between yourself and work can help give you the impetus you need to make positive changes in your life.
However, a holiday alone may not be enough to address deep-seated issues. Taking a step back, but in a dedicated therapeutic environment, can allow you to give yourself a kind of personal MOT while replenishing your own resources.
To function in the way they feel is expected of them, people often end up suppressing how they truly feel, and presenting a face to the world that exerts enormous strain on them.
This can result in ego depletion and a sense of feeling stretched to breaking point.
Women are more susceptible to stress at work than men, and meeting these kinds of demands is one of the reasons why
They may find themselves juggling home commitments with the demands of a career and having to exceed perceived expectations within their work hierarchy.
Loss of Energy
People do not have unlimited personal resources to deal with the daily demands of work. These demands can set off a series of reactions, from negative moods to fatigue, and stress.
This leaves emotional and physical resources depleted or drained, and therefore can then affect motivation and productivity.
For this reason, wellbeing at work should be a pressing issue both for employers and their employees.
It’s been demonstrated that even short breaks away from a workstation aid productivity; and weekends and holidays can also play a crucial part in helping replenish resources and give people much-needed time to recover from work pressures.
A more dedicated approach to embedding lasting change is to harness the benefits of time away and use them in a therapeutic environment.
This is where a dedicated retreat is invaluable. It offers help in addressing underlying issues with the kind of guidance that enables people to make clear, enduring changes in their lives.
Taking time away from the workplace, with clear physical distance, is a proven recovery strategy when it comes to dealing with stress and promoting health and wellbeing.
