With high risk activities and constant pressure to perform, the construction site is one of the most important places for mindfulness.
Breath is like the remote control to your mind. You have access to your state of mind and your nervous system at any time just by using
your breath. Control your breath and you control your mind bringing awareness to the task at hand.
The relationship between your breath and stress is synonymous. When we are stressed our breathing patterns become shallow and
fast. When we are relaxed and calm, our breathing patterns slow down.
Whether you are overwhelmed, in the middle of a stressful situation on site or just want to start your day off right, a regular breath and
mindfulness practice will help alter your mindset and ability to remain calm amongst the chaos of the construction site.
Did you know that a regular breath and mindfulness practice can…
Give clarity and calm the mind
Benefit concentration and focus
Improve the immune system
Assist in faster recovery from exercise, and
Safety starts with a healthy body and mind
Our breath and mindfulness training gives Tradies practical exercises they can use at any time of the day or night. Tools that will help them respond instead of react during stressful situations, tools that will help create calm amongst chaos.
How? Using the one tool we all have free access to…our breath.
Overall I have thoroughly enjoyed participating in the Healthy Tradie Project and have seen benefits in my mental and physical health whilst also strengthening my relationships with co-workers who are also involved in the project.
