We talked last week about the value of a short walk at lunchtime for the brain. Studies have shown that when we’re relaxing and daydreaming, the brain does not slow down or stop working, in fact that’s the time the mind can obliquely solve tough problems; the epiphany moments we sometimes have in the shower! It’s during downtime that our minds mull over all those unfinished projects, searching for solutions. Downtime replenishes the brain’s stores of attention and motivation, encourages productivity and creativity, and is essential to achieve our highest levels of performance. Downtime also replenishes our energy, essential when time is such a limited resource. So bring on the next bank holiday!
To celebrate learning at work week, Pro-Development are running a free group coaching session on Monday 15th May with the theme ‘Curious and Creative Coaching’. This is being held in the lovely Tailormade Conference rooms here at Forest Farm Business Park and it’s a great opportunity to experience some group coaching. If the weather’s nice we might go for a walk as well, we do our best thinking at 1.8 mph.
