Resilience means no stress – Week 4

In this penultimate week of stress awareness month, the Resilience Engine insights illustrate how the stress reaction works in our brains and body. There is a clear tipping point during any stress reaction, when normal stress-reversal mechanisms stop working. This is the point of hijack.

People at high levels of resilience do not cross this tipping point. They have built a platform of resilience that acts as a buffer to this negative stress reaction, and issues are in fact mostly headed off at the pass.

There are three core phases of any stress reaction. The first is good, the second is a bit of a warning, the third is dangerous. Resilience acts to allow the stress reversal mechanisms to function well, and so anyone with a high level of resilience will naturally thrive as a result of phase 1, will intervene if they spot they are in phase 2, and so they never end up in phase 3.

Imagine that! Getting the good stuff from this normal, performance-enhancing reaction, without getting the bad stuff.

Resilience is the ticket. The Resilience Engine enables high performance and wellbeing through our resilience services.  If you want to know the kinds of ways that you and your organisation can increase resilience, talk to us today.
