Be Happy at Work with Bach Flower Power
We spend over a third of our life at work, and yet many of us feel unhappy, unfulfilled and stressed in the office or workplace. The reason? Apparently we are irritated by our colleagues and their behaviour or daily habits and rituals. Because John is having a coffee break (again) and he hasn’t replied to our e-mail yet. And Jane is always late, while Janet keeps laughing out loud on the phone and we can’t concentrate – what’s so funny anyway?
Bach Flower Power Remedies for Happiness at Work
We hear you. A recent survey by Bach™ Original Flower Remedies has found that 43% of people said their colleagues had the ability to wind them up and 49% said they thought their colleagues were incompetent. With research showing there is a positive correlation between the sociability of an office and how productive the people working in them feel, it’s time to let nature give us a helping hand.
The Language of Flowers
How interesting then that flower has the power to affect your emotions in a positive way. We love the idea of flower power and we’ve found a natural flower remedy to help you feel happier and move towards a better working relationship with your colleagues. Here are four essences from the Bach Original Flower Remedy Office Tool Kit that will help you deal with everyone from your very challenging boss to the new intern – and maybe make new friends too!
Cherry Plum (Composure) – Your office workers annoying habits that get on your nerves? Stay cool and don’t lose control; a calm mind can fuel rational thinking. The positive potential of Cherry Plum is a person who has a serene mind and is able to think and act rationally.
Impatiens (Patience) – Co-worker taking too long to reply or make the next tea round? Cope diplomatically with irritating problems in a patient manner. Don’t be impatient with the slow pace of people or things. The positive potential of Impatiens is less hastiness in thought and action.
Centuary (Assertiveness) – Always saying yes to more work and extra projects? Don’t be scared to say no. Express yourself freely; don’t easily get influenced by the opinions of others. The positive potential of Centaury is the ability to express and defend your own opinions and follow your own path unhampered by the opinions of others.
Beech (Tolerance) – Colleagues winding you up? See the good in others and things; be more tolerant and compassionate towards them and don’t be critical. The positive potential of Beech is a sense of compassion towards others.
