Nila, a practitioner in the field of neurophysiology and emotional resilience, shares her expertise on how understanding our nervous system and tapping into the concept of "flow" can lead to a more fulfilling and productive personal and business life.

Yiuwin and Nila discuss different aspects of flow, including how it can manifest during activities like mountain biking or working within a highly engaged team. The conversation delves into practical techniques for achieving an optimal state, such as breathwork, tapping, and emotional release exercises. Nila stresses the importance of understanding how our bodies react to stress and recognising the signs and symptoms as a means to address them effectively.

The episode concludes with a discussion on sustainable performance and the need for individuals and leaders to prioritise well-being in the workplace. Nila emphasises that by addressing accumulated stress and creating a positive energy environment, we can not only enhance our productivity but also ensure a healthier and more fulfilling life.
