Focus, Commitment and Sheer Will Are Not Enough
You may have the ‘focus, commitment, and sheer will’ of John Wick, but if you are fatigued or exhausted your decision-making, focus, awareness, and emotional regulation will be impaired.
Your cognitive functions are energy dependant which means that when you are tired or burnt out your physical and mental health are undermined, motivation is lowered, and you are more prone to:
- Flawed decision-making
- A lack of clarity and high-level thinking
- An increase in risk aversion and pessimism
Outperform’s Rest, Recharge and Recover 2 stage process will help you understand the stressors that deplete your energy reserves and equip you with strategies to mitigate energy leaks and rebuild and recover during the day while you work and at night while you sleep.
Stage 1 – Monitoring and Awareness
Physiological awareness is central to developing a rest and recovery plan. This is done through the use of cutting-edge technology, used by athletes and tier 1 military, that measures key biometrics including Heart Rate Variability (HRV) and resting heart rate. The data is translated into stress and recovery scores that provides the insights necessary to create an effective rest and recovery plan.
We also encourage our clients to engage in a subjective awareness practice such as record keeping of their daily experience of stress, energy and sleep. Combining objective monitoring via technology with subjective awareness provides a reliable comprehensive picture of stress and recovery patterns.
Stage 2 – Recharge and Recover Strategies
At the core of Outperform’s coaching philosophy is the understanding that one size does not fit all i.e., individuals respond differently to the range of available solutions. The Outperform approach also utilizes the increased benefits that result from stacking easy to implement strategies and tactics. These include:
- Fast recharge tactics for the working day.
- Breathwork practices for increasing energy and clarity and enabling you to quickly and effectively wind down and de-stress.
- Sleep optimization including identification of sleep disruptors, falling asleep faster and achieving greater REM and deep sleep.
- Recommendations for lifestyle changes
- Resonance and coherence practices
After Just 3 coaching sessions I began to feel like I did in my twenties. My energy, thinking and productivity shot through the roof and I feel much happier and healthier.
