High technology careers are typically associated with high pressure and stressful environments. How do technical executives manage their health within pressured environments? Janice Zajchowski, an executive at Oracle, responsible for helping her Fortune 10 accounts gain value from their cloud technology investments, uses health management techniques. Some of her health techniques for the physical aspect of the body include exercising with yoga, bike riding, Pilates, long walks, and weight training. However, there is also an aspect to health that provides for mental fitness. Meditation is one way to address the mind and spirit. Like millions of Americans, Janice begins and ends her day by exercising her soul and mind. Meditation has proven not just to benefit the mind but also the body. The American Journal of Cardiology, through recent studies, has shown that meditations have a lower prevalence of high blood pressure, cholesterol, coronary artery disease, and diabetes. Some forms of meditation, such as self-inquiry, may help you develop a more vital understanding of yourself, helping you grow into your best self and how you relate to those around you. They also found in older volunteers preliminary evidence that multiple meditation styles can increase attention, memory, and mental quickness. One way of improving sleep quality and falling asleep quicker is through mediation because it helps you relax and control runaway thoughts that can interfere with sleep. Meditation does not have to take a long time; one can practice for it just a few minutes in the day.
