Strong nerves, strong team

Do you work in a project team? Modern working is built on creative collaborations in working life. New solutions are needed in order to work together in a goal-oriented manner. The more different the perspectives of each team member, the better. Diversity in terms of age, experience or cultural background is a factor that ensures success.

However, collaboration in changing teams also calls for flexibility and strong nerves. The good news is that mental strength can also be trained. A successful teamwork has a positive effect on your well-being, and increases satisfaction and motivation.

Take opportunities

It is part and parcel of working life that things sometimes fail to run according to plan. Improvising, communicating and finding solutions together – this is more important than ever today. To take on, examine and overcome challenges more easily, you need good mental strength. This skill is known as resilience. If you are interested, take a look at the information provided on this topic.

Think positive

Do you see a change of plan more as a setback or an opportunity? Your own attitude plays a key role in whether stress paralyses you or inspires activity. Accept things as they are, and focus on what you stand to gain by accepting the challenge.

Be active

If a problem occurs, don’t shy away from it. Try to actively find solutions. Trust in your strengths and abilities. Those who feel they are capable of action have higher satisfaction levels and can tackle difficult situations with confidence.

Say goodbye to tension

Successful teamwork is proven to make people happy. However, project work also tends to be fast-paced and is often subject to time pressure. The body releases adrenaline and mobilises additional energy. Lasting tension, however, damages the heart and circulation. Get a good balance!

Actively reduce stress

Regular activity is a miracle cure against stress and fatigue. It not only strengthens the heart and muscles, but also the immune system. While jogging or cycling, you can free your mind and relax more efficiently.

Doing sport together

If you already spend a lot of time with your team, suggest an activity-based lunch break. Table tennis, a kickabout in the local park or a walk before lunch. Does your company have any running groups? Positive results improve team spirit.

Switch off in the right way

Relaxation time

There are many ways to relax in the evening, such as through gardening, taking a walk or meeting up with friends. Set aside some time for yourself. Relaxation courses such as yoga or autogenic training will help with this.

Find your rhythm

Everybody can dance. Try it out! Dancing makes you happy, relaxes and strengthens the muscles, improves posture and is fun. It can also give a new spark to your relationship.

Brain jogging

Become smarter during your free time? It’s possible. Sudoku and other puzzles are known as mental exercises for a reason. When did you last play chess? Or learn a foreign language? Strengthen your brain and prevent dementia.
