What is (work) stress?

Stress is a form of tension that we need to perform optimally. The tension part of our autonomic nervous system then appears: say the accelerator of our body. Healthy stress (with accompanying adrenaline) you have for a presentation, job interview or your first date.

If stress persists for too long and even becomes structural, it is no longer healthy and it becomes the wrong stress. This releases the hormone cortisol and too much cortisol has a negative effect on your entire nervous system. This creates all sorts of physical and psychological complaints and you can even become ill.

Reducing (work) stress with the Here and Now

You’ve probably heard something about it: being in the ‘here and now’. It may sound a bit vague, but it is nothing more and nothing less than that with your attention you are fully present at what you are doing at that moment. So do not check your mail while talking to a colleague or watching TV and sitting on your laptop at the same time.

Just a thought-through: contrary to your attention, your body is always in the now . Huh? Just go after: have you ever experienced your body in the past?

In stress or anxiety you are usually not with your attention in the here and now. While your body is just in the car, your head is regularly in the past or the future. What if:

  • my presentation is not going well
  • I am not accepted
  • this guy really does not like me?

This costs you unnecessary negative energy because you can not influence the future.

How does yoga help to reduce (work) stress?

Yoga “forces” you to be in the now. But how? Yoga teaches you, using your breathing, to:

  • keep your attention with your body while doing all kinds of physical yoga postures
  • literally feel where the stress is in your body
  • recognize and respect these boundaries
  • then relax your body

Your body is actually a kind of ‘now-anchor’! And because through yoga you keep your attention with your body and thus more and more in the present, you will experience less stress.
