Your Life or Your Job? For the Really Stressed Out tt Could be a Choioce of Life or Death
Yoga Instructor and author Bruce Van Horn has developed a program to help employers to move away from fear-based motivation and tools for employee empowerment.
Bruce found that by meditating before work and by bringing the yogic philosophy into the workplace, business increased and employees were happier. Bruce created a wellness program specifically for working people who need to better manage their stress and overall health.
Workplace stress arises either due to unfavorable working conditions or dissatisfaction with ones job. The first, more common burnout occurs when workplace stress overwhelms the individual. Often times the management, through unreasonable expectations of organizational goals, trigger the stress response in the individual. The fear of being fired is equated with our fear of mortality. At least our ancestors could run or fight thereby burning off the adrenaline. Over time the constant release of adrenaline and cortisol will weaken the immune system and lead to burnout
The other source of burnout is job dissatisfaction, which Bruce suffered from. Bruce was miserable as a CPA and the unhappiness manifested as a physical illness. Then a midlife crises hit. His wife wouldnt let him have an affair or buy a sports car so he had to make a fundamental life change. Now his life is exciting and full of adventure.
Bruces work is dedicated to his father and his former manager and all whose lives were cut short due to dysfunctional organizational design.
