Helping Knowledge Workers Switch Off in an Always-On World – With Insights from HRV Data
When it comes to life’s challenges, there is a difference between being stressed and being stressed out. While some stress can be exciting and challenging, beyond a certain threshold, stress can lead to a deterioration in physiological and psychological systems and, subsequently, many of the health issues we see in modern life.
Many people find that excessive stress manifests as a sense that they can’t switch off and that it is difficult to recover fully from day to day, whilst 70% of people say that they struggle to get a sense of mental distance from work.
In this upcoming Firstbeat webinar, our special guest James Hewitt will discuss how to help knowledge workers master the skill of being able to ‘switch off’ and how to transform challenge and uncertainty into an opportunity for growth using HRV measurements.
You will also learn:
- How the principle that ‘we can’t overtrain, but we can under-recover’ applies to knowledge work
- The associations between HRV and cognitive performance
- How to approach knowledge work as a cognitive endurance activity
