Why should I do a Stress, Recovery & Lifestyle Assessment?
The assessment is a scientific evaluation of your lifestyle and the balance between its primary factors of stress, activity, and recovery.
This physiological analysis uses advanced heartbeat technology to determine:
• How do you handle stress?
• How productive is your work time?
• What effect does this stress have on other areas of your life?
(Periods of prolonged stress without sufficient recovery weaken the body’s defenses and increases the risk of cardiovascular and lifestyle diseases.)
• Are you active enough?
• Do you maximize your exercise?
• What are the effects of your exercise routine?
(Good fitness can increase the functional quality of your life by as many as 20 years.)
• Do you recover sufficiently?
• Do you get the right amount of sleep?
• How is the quality of your sleep?
(Brain capacity drops by 40% after five consecutive nights of poor sleep. Long-term sleeplessness puts you at risk of many diseases.)
The Lifestyle Assessment is a simple three step process:
1. Measurement: Typically a three-day assessment representative of your ‘normal’ lifestyle, wearing a discreet monitor, producing objective physiological data.
2. Feedback: Identify particularly stressful periods during work and leisure time, determine if your activity levels are frequent and intense enough to provide positive health effects, evaluate the quantity and quality of your recovery. Presented in a personalized written report highlighting areas of strength and opportunities for change.
3. Action: Individual action plan for positive change leading to higher levels of wellness. Learn how to effectively manage your stress, make the most of your exercise, and improve the quality of your sleep.
After a prescribed period of change, a follow-up assessment is recommended to confirm the positive progress you will have made.
