Resilience is about how you recharge, not how you endure. After working hard for many hours and toughing it out, we at least expect success. However, more often than not, at the end of the day we are exhausted and still have a long list of tasks to complete. Why does this happen? According to Harvard Business Review researchers we have a fundamental misunderstanding of what it means to be resilient. Resilience requires one to stop, recover and then begin the hard work again. Recovery is key to maintaining well-being and also preventing lost productivity. To build resilience, you need to be willing to stop and to take time off. Time away from your phone, eating lunch away from your desk and actually making time to retreat. To retreat means to step back. Taking a pause and making time for a complete internal reset and practice well-being and resilience as foundation skills.
The power of time off has created a NEW RETREAT in WILD NATURE in the rolling hills of Sabina, near Rome. A world away from modern life, yet within reach of Rome and its airports.
And of course there is the NEW E-VITALITY CALENDAR for you to REVITALIZE IN 2022. A holistic approach to build resilience through nature connection, stress relief, deep relaxation, nutrition and meditation and breathing.
‘From my own experience I know the power of taking time off. It helps to lead yourself and others, to revitalize and be more resilient’. Ingrid Valks, Chief Awareness Officer, changemaker for New Leadership, yoga- and meditation teacher, initiator the power of time off.
