WIM HOF: 11 Minutes to De-stress Your Life. This Works!

In today’s fast-paced world, stress has become an inevitable part of our lives. Work-related stress is one of the most common types of stress that people experience, and it can have a significant impact on our health and well-being. One of the ways to reduce stress is through breathing exercises, and Wim Hof breathing is one of the most effective techniques for managing stress in the workplace.

Wim Hof breathing is a method developed by Wim Hof, also known as “The Iceman,” who is a Dutch extreme athlete. The technique involves a combination of deep breathing exercises and cold exposure. The breathing technique consists of taking 30 deep breaths in a row, followed by holding your breath for as long as you can. This process is repeated for several rounds, and the effects are almost immediate.

One of the reasons why Wim Hof’s breathing is so effective for reducing stress is because it helps to regulate the sympathetic nervous system, which is responsible for the “fight or flight” response. This response is triggered by stress, and it can cause physical symptoms such as increased heart rate, sweating, and rapid breathing. By regulating the sympathetic nervous system, Wim Hof’s breathing helps to reduce the physical symptoms of stress and promote relaxation.

Another reason why Wim Hof’s breathing is so effective is that it promotes the release of endorphins, which are natural painkillers and mood enhancers. Endorphins are produced by the body in response to stress, and they help to reduce feelings of pain and improve mood. By promoting the release of endorphins, Wim Hof’s breathing helps to reduce the negative effects of stress on the body and mind.

Additionally, Wim Hof’s breathing is easy to do and can be done anywhere, including at work. All you need is a quiet space and a few minutes of uninterrupted time. This makes it a convenient and practical way to manage stress, especially during a busy workday.

Wim Hof’s breathing is an effective technique for reducing stress in the workplace. It helps to regulate the sympathetic nervous system, promotes the release of endorphins, and is easy to do. By incorporating Wim Hof breathing into your daily routine, you can reduce the negative effects of stress and promote a healthier, more balanced life.

Tina Olivero

30 years ago, Tina Olivero looked into the future and saw an opportunity to make a difference for her province and people. That difference came in the form of the oil and gas sector. Six years before there was even a drop of oil brought to the shores of Newfoundland, she founded The Oil and Gas Magazine (THE OGM) from a back room in her home on Signal Hill Road, in St. John’s, Newfoundland. A single mother, no financing, no previous journalism or oil and gas experience, she forged ahead, with a creative vision and one heck of a heaping dose of sheer determination. With her pioneering spirit, Ms. Olivero developed a magazine that would educate, inspire, motivate and entertain oil and gas readers around the world — She prides herself in marketing and promoting our province and resources in unprecedented ways. The OGM is a magazine that focuses on our projects, our people, our opportunities and ultimately becomes the bridge to new energy outcomes and a sustainable new energy world. Now diversifying into the communications realms, a natural progression from the Magazine, The OGM now offers an entirely new division - Oil & Gas Media. Today, The Oil and Gas Magazine is a global phenomenon that operates not only in Newfoundland, but also in Calgary and is read by oil and gas enthusiasts in Norway, Aberdeen, across the US and as far reaching as Abu Dhabi, in the Middle East. Believing that Energy is everyone’s business, Ms. Olivero has combined energy + culture to embrace the worlds commitment to a balance of work and home life as well as fostering a foundation for health and well being. In this era of growth and development business and lifestyle are an eloquent mix, there is no beginning or end. Partnering with over 90 oil and gas exhibitions and conferences around the world, Ms. Olivero's role as a Global Visionary is to embrace communication in a way that fosters oil and gas business and industry growth in new and creative ways.
