Stress and pregnancy?

Stress has become a working condition in high performance environments. It is something that happens and something which must be handled; we cannot completely avoid stress. But, how to deal with pregnancy when having a career? Should you as a woman avoid high performance jobs if you want to become pregnant one day?

It should be forbidden to put too much pressure on a pregnant women. When a woman is pregnant the development of the foetus’s nervous system and brain will be affected by the stress level of the mother. As a coach, I meet many skilled people who push themselves and their bodies into an unhealthy and stressful position.

Did you know that there is a risk that you and your co-workers have a high level of stress?

You are working. Time flies by and suddenly you discover that you are hungry. You have actually forgotten to eat. Sometimes it’s also like that with your breathing. You forget to breathe properly.

It is important to pay attention to breathing deeply, which gives oxygen to the brain and makes your muscles relax. This little gadget from Spire helps remind me.

Most people all know the feeling of being a bit stressed. Sometimes it can give a little boost. But do you really know what stress is and what it does to you? In this video you can hear a little more about the stress symptoms that our body sends to us. Actually, I like to call stress symptoms, stress signals because it’s actually your body trying to tell you something. The body is intelligent. Sometimes it’s more intelligent than our head.

Find out how we can get more effective meetings. There is nothing as frustrating as ineffective meetings. We all know the feeling. The meeting is being hijacked by a person with a big mouth who is most keen on hearing himself speak. You do not get to do what was planned. Frustrated, you split up without making any decisions, and you have to spend time again talking about the matter.
