How to neutralize stress in the workplace
20 July 2017 - Each workplace environment is unique, but in this era they have a common thread - stress. Pavel Khokhlachev, a Russian-English conference interpreter based in London, offers insight into how the Transcendental Meditation technique (TM) not only benefits interpreters - but can positively impact professionals who work in high-stakes scenarios, travel for work, or regularly deal with a stressful environment. Khokhlachev reviews TM research findings of deep rest and relaxation during the practice, as well as reduced stress, anxiety, and PTSD, lower blood pressure, improved brain function, and enhanced work performance - all of which he has found helpful in the 'extremely demanding' work of consecutive and simultaneous interpreting.
