How can companies protect workers against stress and burnout? Well-Being researcher Hein Zegers shares his insights on the topic.
“The BASICS therapeutic approach is a routine based on empirical research conducted among people who consciously choose a more brain-friendly environment”, he explains in an interview with Mensura, Belgium’s largest External Occupational Health Service.
BASICS is the acronym for Back (taking a step back), Attention, Select (what is really essential), Invest (in what is essential) and Cut (what is not essential). By cutting down on the number of activities or tasks on your to-do list, you will experience more Sense (meaningfulness). Within a work context, the BASICS method often translates into the 80/20 rule: 20% of your carefully selected activities produce 80% of your positive results.
