Interview with Karlin Sloan, author of the book Smarter, Faster, Better: Strategies for Effective, Enduring, and Fulfilled Leadership
Executive coach Karlin Sloan, author of the book Smarter, Faster, Better…
Those people who take that time, just in the evening to be with their families or to take that down time - actually we see increased brain function and better productivity.
Karlin says that you will always think better and make better decisions when you slow your mind down.
And that requires nothing more than just deep breathing. We have these amazing things in our bodies - our autonomic nervous system can help us function better and think better. It takes about thirty seconds and your autonomic nervous system will kick in and your best thinking will start.
If you doubt the power of doing this, try it…
Take a deep breath (and you can do that with me right now) and repeat that three times and once you've done that you'll start to feel your body relax and we know that at that moment your brain is engaging in a new way. The patterns in your brain are restructuring and your nerves are changing. You don't have to go away for two weeks to do a little reset, you only have to take this very short amount of time and it can help you to be more effective on the job.
