No pain, no gain? You snooze, you lose? You’ll bend, but you won’t break? Good advice, but dangerous when taken too far. Besides, is that really productive?
Plowing away at work when you’re staring slack-jawed at a screen ‘til 9PM at the office won’t do your productivity or your health any good. Nothing gets done and that time could have been better devoted to rest.
If this turns into a cycle, then burnout becomes a likely reality.
The WHO has recognized it as a medical condition when they added it to the International Classification of Diseases.(1) According to a Gallup survey of nearly 7,500 employees, 23% of them report feeling burnout at work very often or always, while an additional 44% reported feeling it sometimes.
As if it wasn’t precarious enough, chances of being rushed to the emergency room during a burnout shoots up by 23%.(2)
Nothing short of insidious, more and more people are falling victim to this silent killer.
But Silentmode has found a way to fight back — All you need to do is breathe.
Stress and exhaustion add fuel to the fire, and as obvious as the fact that water puts out fire, rest and relaxation are known remedies for these ailments.
To get better quality rest, you can train your brain like a muscle.
“But how do we ‘train’ our brain?”
Good question, and Silentmode finds the answer in our often-stressed nervous system — the cardiac vagal tone (CVT), which is often used to measure stress levels. It’s connected to the vagus nerve, which coordinates breathing, regulates heart rate, and is generally linked with stress response.
Bad CVT = High cortisol levels. Feelings of anxiety, stress, increased blood pressure, weight gain, fatigue and impaired brain function are just a few of the punches you’re taking.
I was well rested with more energy... Silentmode helped take my team to the finals that year... The statistics of my percentages went from 41% to 47% from the 3 point line, and 44% to 48% from the field goal... Numbers don’t lie.
So how do you fight back?
Let’s take a deep breath. There - feeling better already?
If so, that’s probably because you were keeping your body’s stress signals in check by controlled breathing. This is called resonance frequency (RF) breathing, which has been shown to improve heart rate, decrease high blood pressure, and even elevate your mood, which are all signals of better CVT.
Using this reverse-engineered stress pathway, Silentmode has devised a tool to maximize the benefits of RF breathing to control your CVT levels and allow you to essentially relax on command.
Now you can combat burnout and train your nervous system.
There are many wellness and meditation programs we can sink hours into, but some of us don’t have hours to spend.
