Simon Sinek on Leadership: Most leaders don’t even know the game they are in

See on Scoop.itElevate Your Potential Magazine – Elevate Christian Network

Simon Sinek: Trust and cooperation are not standard in our organizations and yet we know they should be.

There are two attributes that every single leader has the opportunity to possess that will help them create the types of organizations we would be proud to call our own.

Those two attributes are empathy and perspective.

Cee Harmon’s insight:

According to Simon Sinek, Leaders are the ones who run headfirst into the unknown. They put their own interests aside to protect us or pull us into a brighter future.

If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.

Dr. Nicholas Hobson: How Misreading Bodily Signals Causes Anxiety

See on Scoop.itElevate Your Potential Magazine – Elevate Christian Network

Dr. Nicholas Hobson: What it means when you can feel your anxiety in the body. New research explains the good and bad of these body-based cues during states of stress.

This ability to perceive the signals of your body is known as  interoceptive accuracy (IAc). There are, as the example demonstrated, different psychosomatic cues that you pick up within yourself during states of anxiety. But above all, a beating heart is the hardest one to ignore.

It’s for this reason that heartbeat perception, as brain scientists call it, is a direct proxy for measuring people’s IAc and reported anxiety and stress levels.

Cee Harmon’s insight:

Here’s a scenario: You’ve just pulled into work and are ready to pitch your presentation to the senior management team. As everyone gathers in the room, you’re suddenly flooded with a hit of adrenaline.

The bad kind. In a flash you become acutely aware of what your body is doing: beads of sweat forming on your brow, a dry mouth that no amount of water can fix, and a steadily increasing heart rate thumping inside your chest.

Having the ability to accurately detect your own heartbeat is critical for reappraising your anxiety on a moment to moment basis.

Cee Harmon’s insight:

Drink a glass of water first

Many people who start the day with coffee find that they don’t drink enough plain water by the end of the day. If you’re one of them, try downing at least one cup or eight ounces of H2O (plain or infused) when you wake up.

And aim for a target of four 16-ounce servings of water throughout the day to stay well-hydrated.

See on Scoop.itHealth and Wellness Center – Elevate Christian Network

Sometimes the thing that excites us also causes anxiety––it can be tough to tell the difference, but with these tips, you can turn anxious thoughts around.

Cee Harmon’s insight:

According to Dr. Sal Raisbach of of Ambrosia Treatment Center, "When you experience anxiety, the first thing that happens is your senses observe your environment, and you feel that rush of cortisol in your brain as the fight-or-flight mentality begins to set in.“

"This is something humans have evolved to do to be able to sense danger and respond quickly, which is why it all happens in a matter of seconds.”
