Power of Pause: The New Science of Brain Breaks, Stress Reduction, and Self Care with James Garrett

With our work demands getting faster and faster, and the pressure to balance home and work continually rising, brain science has now shown that the key to our most productive, creative, and happiest selves isn't working harder, it's working smarter. 

In this presentation, you'll discover:

-The power of pause--and why scheduling micro-breaks charges your mental battery and how it helps avoid coaching burnout

-How taking care of yourself and building "stress resilience" can increase both you and your clients' productivity and happiness.

-Why your clients feel highly distractible at 3pm and how to help them double their productivity in the afternoon

-Why multitasking is costing you and the clients you work with time and money -- and how to achieve focus in a hyper-distracted world

-What is the best way to structure your workday to manage stress and stay calm through even the toughest projects

-How the science behind innovation—and how understanding your own brain's "deep problem solving" network—can be the key that unlocks your world-changing ideas

-Why the best coaches keep their mental battery charged and how they tap into states of flow and peak performance

-How successful coaches manage their "stress debt" by making micro-investments in their wellness throughout the day.

Learning Objectives:

  • Demonstrate how to implement “brain break” interventions, which help the client “recharge” their “body budget,” thereby increasing resilience, self-control, and creativity.
  • Differentiate between whether a client needs help with their brain’s “break system” (willpower) or “accelerator system” (motivation), as well as design interventions that will help their client build the neural pathways for whichever system is in need of strengthening.
  • Explain to clients how their brain is similar to their cell phone battery and that it needs to be periodically recharged throughout the day through micro-breaks and intentional self-care.
  • Differentiate between activities that drain the brain and activities that recharge the brain, thereby helping facilitate new habits that incorporate more recharge activities into the daily routines of their clients.
Participants will earn 1 Core Competency and .5 Resource Development CCEs for attending.

He's a certified coach through the Whole Fit coaching program. He also built one of the only brain-based positive psychology curricula in the Middle East and trained thousands of Arab youth in partnership with Queen Rania of Jordan.
