Expert Reveals how doing Nothing is just as Important as Being a High Performer
When Women are faced with multiple demands on their time, sometimes doing nothing can help them achieve more.
The word Ningi means Abundance in Zulu and I believe that abundance often comes from having less and doing less first so that a strong and considered action plan can be formulated which involves creating balance as a priority to achieving success.
Experiential Learning Expert, Caroline Marshall, said that peak performance is becoming harder to achieve because people are not stopping, unplugging and becoming completely still. Women in particular, are striving to be all things to everyone at all times and are finding it harder to cope.
“Often women are working full time, managing the role of homemaker and carer for the children whilst still being expected to stay fit and healthy. Women are risking their Mental Health daily to achieve goals which society is setting for them,” Marshall said.
Peak Performance is achieved when we take the opportunity to really stop and reflect upon our current circumstances, where we want to go and creating strong plans to achieve those outcomes. When all your time is spent in useless busy-ness, its unlikely you will create a strong plan. Devoting time to exploring natural environments often leads to creative problem solving. High Performing women have learnt that having a practical plan that allows them to schedule time completely away from all distractions, helps them achieve success. Marshall said she breaks away for short periods, going on overnight hikes which allowed her to re-focus her life and make small changes that result in peak performance.
“While some stress can help you kick-butt, when your body goes into fight-or-flight mode, daily stress can mess with your mind and body in serious ways, often resulting in Mental health issues. Getting away into the bush allows me to go offline to focus on my own wellbeing and mindfulness,” said Marshall. “Clients I have worked with who have invested time in themselves in this way have felt more focussed, in control of their lives and better prepared for the daily challenges they face.”
Some of the easiest and simplest ways for women to unplug and re-charge are:
- Getting back to nature – go for a walk, go kayaking off the foreshore, volunteer with an outdoor group
- Get moving - Joining a local fitness studio, learn how to dance, join a yoga group
- Getting away with girlfriends – Discover what is available in your area and ask friends where they go to decompress
- Waking up earlier – Rising early gives you time to meditate, exercise and achieve your most important priority for the day
- Learn a new Skill – Learn to scuba dive, take up Belly Dancing, Learn a new language
Creating a mindset that leads to peak performance is about creating an empty environment to ponder, prepare and plan that success. Being out in the bush gives people a wraparound experience that forces them to slow down enough to actually make lasting changes.
Body Transformation trainer, Hayden Dodson agreed with Marshalls’ approach saying that there is no need to make huge changes. He agreed that results come from the smallest, most profound steps and that getting yourself moving is the first shift you need to make to increase energy, raise endorphin levels and move towards peak performance.
