It can be easy to be pulled in into negative thinking. Our brains are dominated by the limbic system and overridden by the fight-or-flight response. It is due to this, we have a tendency to be reactive and feel overstimulated when obscuring thoughts arise.
In the workplace, being aware of emotional responses can be a key to your productivity, development and enjoyment in the office.
Negative emotions also have functional effects and provide us with clues about how we feel about things. Are there tasks or projects you’re trying to avoid? Could you improve your relationship with some colleagues?
By balancing the mind, you develop the objectivity to utilise those feelings. Not only do we become less frazzled, we discover the clues to unravelling those stirring thoughts before they become unhinging.
It is also invaluable having a technique to maintain equilibrium. Unknowingly, thoughts have their own currents, which can take you out of the present. The more you’re taken off track, the harder it can be to return to your vital state: attentive, aware and in control.
Developing those noticing abilities and being in tune with your emotions gives you the best possible platform to work from. Your inner life governs your outer life, and if you can align the two, you will go a long way to improving the quality of your life and creating more peace of mind.
