There’s a deadline looming. You’ve got to finish a report. You are anxious about a presentation you’re about to give. There’s a meeting with the boss in the diary. The phone won’t stop ringing and you’ve got a towering inbox of emails. And to top it all you’ve got a headache and your shoulder hurts. It’s a normal day at the office!
It’s not surprising with this much pressure that by the time you go home you feel shattered.
The fact that many of us are desk-bound for hours on end doesn’t help. We get totally sucked into the world on the screen in front of us, unaware of our body until it starts hurting. And the resulting injuries can cause great pain and be incapacitating, forcing us to take time off work.
But you don’t have to be uncomfortable sitting at your desk. You don’t have to tense your shoulders and neck when you speak in a meeting. You can learn to do things differently.
By using the Alexander Technique, you will be able to re-boot your body in a matter of seconds. Not only will you feel more energised, it will also help you stress less, think more clearly, and become more resilient to pressure. And the great thing is that you will be learning a skill which is completely portable so it is something you can practice anywhere and at any time.
If you are unable to fit in a lesson around work, learning about the Alexander Technique in the workplace can be hugely beneficial. If the organisation or company where you work would like me to give lessons to their staff, please do get in touch.
