George Anderson, an anger management and executive coach for physicians asked the following question on LinkedIn (by the way, join http://www.linkedin.com/ as a major business network and see George's profile):
"Are the stresses in your life impacting your success?
Stress is a primary emotion which is a factor in many diseases including heart attacks, strokes, ulcers, diabetes,hypertension, depression and anxiety. Stress precedes anger and exacerbates frustration and anger. Stress reduces the ability to concentrate and focus on precision learning"
The answer is almost certainly yes if you are a senior executive from the BB Generation. What's important about this (aside from the obvious health aspects) is that senior executives hold the knowledge base for their companies. Given that increasingly knowledge is seen as a corporate asset, anything that impacts on this important resource such as stress-induced ill health or poor performance directly diminishes corporate wealth.
This is a subject that Boom Generation Fitness will be investigating. Watch this space!!
PS: the photo just illustrates the kind of pressure at work Baby Boomer executives are subject to.... not always lunching or playing golf!!
Boom Generation Fitness
Mind - body fitness and health strategies for powering thru later years
The blog is aimed at the generation that was born between 1946 and 1964 - the so-called Baby Boomers.
We are now into our middle-age and very interested in staying fit and healthy until well into our senior years.
This blog provides some of the tools to do just that. You can find posts here and lots more by clicking on the links to THINK FIT and THE FITNESS PAPERS (see left side column).
These pages are about any and all matters concerning wellness, mind, body and spirit and, of course, physical exercise of all sorts. A special feature is an emphasis on individuals who can provide examples for us all of a healthy, energetic and positive life.
