The Resilient Retail Game Plan Episode 126

The Importance Of Stress Relief with Martyna Borek

Podcast show notes

That’s it! Christmas Day has come and gone, and with any mercy, you can take some proper time out in these few days before 2023! 

It’s been a tough year, with the combined challenges of post-pandemic life, postal strikes and the cost of living crisis (to name a few!) hitting small product businesses hard and no doubt causing founders and business owners alike untold stress. That’s why in this episode of The Resilient Retail Game Plan, we’re doing something a bit different as I speak to my incredible yoga teacher Martyna Borek about the importance of stress relief and how we can all seize a moment of calm in our often chaotic lives.

In today’s podcast, we talk about the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems and the consequences for our body and mind when we’re forever in ‘fight’ mode. We also discuss the concept of the threat bucket and the importance of allowing ourselves to ditch the mediation and freak out when things get too much. But most importantly Martyna kindly shares her tips for ‘hacking your brain’ with some illuminating neuroscience and cleansing breathing techniques.
