“At least one in ten of the male workforce in the UK describes themselves as ‘significantly stressed’ and 34% of those surveyed agreed or strongly agreed they were ‘constantly feeling stressed or under pressure’ – Positive Male Mind by Dr Shaun Davis and Andrew Kinder
‘Stunning news flash: your head and your body are actually attached to each other. Really. We can use nutritional resources to counterbalance the effects of stress and improve your brain’s health. Eating to balance blood sugar will help straighten out cortisol to some extent. Avoid food that is sweet and fluffy and with a light density and aim for food that has high density and is fibrous, including proteins and good fats’.’ Positive Nutrition by Kate Cook
“If I had only got into the habit of getting things into perspective back then – accepting that good and challenging issues would always present themselves to me as an entrepreneur – then I probably would not have been so stressed. I have found that the number-one thing any entrepreneur can do to help get things into perspective and improve focus is to exercise regularly.” The Entrepreneur’s Book by Neil Francis
Whatever speed you live your life, you’re now operating at a pace unheard of even a generation ago. But unfortunately, our bodies haven’t caught up. In today’s fast-paced world, your body has one requirement that outweighs all others – rest. For us to continue to live active, mentally stimulating, sociable and healthy lives, the rules are simple: the more you challenge it, the more your body needs rest.’ The Wellbeing Book by Andrew Sharman OUT 15TH NOVEMBER
‘I don’t have time’ is a frequent refrain in a modern-day professional life. Yet a reflection such as this will help you identify if you are spending the time you do have wisely. Perhaps change will include cutting away unimportant tasks, delegating others, or simply finding a new time to do things os as to be more efficient.’ Chief Wellbeing Officer by Steven P. MacGregor and Rory Simpson
