Despite this regular physical exercise, they spent their days behind computers, extremely stressed out in fast-paced, mentally challenging roles. Some of her colleagues were finding it difficult to cope with the stressful environment, and I began to think how odd it was how much importance we place on training our bodies, and how little importance on training our minds.
Needless to say that with over 15 years of teaching and practicing Sophrology, a technique specifically designed to train the mind to cope with stress, I have seen countless examples of clients successfully learning to cope with stressful situations. I began to think of how her colleagues could combine the hour at the gym with a short 5-10 minute Sophrology exercise – a mental gym that, would give them all the tools they needed.
Many of my clients do just this, taking a short 5 to 10 minutes out of their day to do a quick and easy Sophrology exercise, bringing them back to the present moment and allowing them to change the way they manage and react to stressful situations.
Indeed, instead of a gym for physical fitness, it’s time to think of a gym for the mind. Sophrology is already known to be successful in helping people recover from stress, depression, anxiety, chronic pain, insomnia and more. In France and Spain it’s widely practiced and it’s even covered by the Swiss health insurances.
