Daytime Recovery/Stress Ratio

The absence of structured Daytime Recovery is a defining characteristic of most executive workdays. 

General Stress
High average levels of Stress correlate positively with low Recovery/ Stress ratios.
Initial Recharge Level
Low Daytime Recovery leads to low Recharge levels and undermines Resilience.
Sleep Quality
Low Recovery/Stress ratios place pressure on Sleep Quality, which leads to rising Accumulated Stress.
Peak Stress
Raising the ceiling of Peak Stress requires active Recovery before and after the targeted activity.
FAQs about Daytime Recovery/Stress Ratio

Executives who have been assessed by PQ recognised the symptoms described by their PQ Coaches.
These are the 3 most asked questions we receive.

Is there a red zone?

Scores of below 15% over a sustained period will lead to a build-up of Accumulated Stress and nervous depletion. Fatigue and impaired performance are likely to follow.


How do I lift my score?

The ratio requires Recovery activities to increase and Stressed activities to reduce during the daytime. So, you need to know what activities register active Recovery and Stress.

Is the ratio similar for most people?

PQ's database has recorded a few executives with very powerful Daytime Recovery conversion and high scores. This is the result of genetics and lifestyle. Most people have low scores and need to make significant changes.

THE METRIC THAT DEMANDS CHANGE
Most executive workdays are 'Stress on'. Conscious Recovery appears to play no part.

Sustainable high performance requires a reliable behaviour platform. Daytime Recovery is the most unleveraged productive personal resource that PQ measures. Managing it is a learned skill.

Prioritising and managing  Daytime Recovery is fundamental to establishing a robust physiological platform. 

ROUTINE CHANGE

The key to raising this score is adjusting work and weekend routines. Active Recovery needs to be regular and purposeful.

TRIAL ACTIVITIES

Each individual has Recovery responses unique to them. The more interventions you trial, the more productive the options.

EQUILIBRIUM

Consistent, unrecovered Daytime Stress increases the likelihood of fatigue. Prioritising effective Recovery will increase performance Capacity over time.

REVIEW

Each individual will respond to intervention differently. Reviewing results and recalibrating to optimise is unavoidable best practice.
