“How do I maximise my performance and conquer stress?” – a common question our clients approach us with. Well, it’s not about maximising, it’s about optimising long term. And it’s not about eliminating stress, but oscillating between stress and recovery. So what does that look like in daily life? And how do you make it happen – personally and in your organisation?
We recently hosted a Hintsa Talk on ‘Sustainable high performance – Optimal oscillation between stress & recovery’. The session was moderated by Akin Omobitan, Ideas Curator and Producer & Host of the ‘Squeezing the Orange’ podcast, who was joined by Nora Rosendahl, Hintsa COO and researcher, and Andy Holmes, most recently Global Head of Wellbeing at Reckitt. Tune in to hear what our experts had to say about:
- The science of sustainable high performance
- How to plan your day effectively
- The common pitfalls and successes of hundreds of leaders over the past years.

Want to learn more about the oscillation of stress and recovery? See some of the resources mentioned in yesterday’s talk:
- On dopamine depletion, the Huberman Lab has a brilliant podcast on dopamine and how it regulates focus, motivation, and energy.
- The “tend-and-befriend” stress reaction is well-elaborated in the book The Upside of Stress by Kelly McGonigal, but also the original Harvard study is intriguing.
- We contributed to a white paper in the McKinsey Quarterly on the oscillation of stress and recovery, which outlines some of the core concepts.
