Work causes stress and can’t be avoided but there are many ways to help deal with work stress better so it does not dominate your life. Whenever stress builds up, you need to stop and use these three tips to not let the stress of work take over the day.
1. Exercise. Make exercise part of your daily routine. A 15-minute walk or an hour-long weight lifting session will help reduce the stress in your life. It improves your mood, helps you get a better night of sleep, and improves your mental alertness. Exercise can help lower your blood pressure and helps you maintain your weight.
2. Take a Break. Stop working every few hours. Slowing down when you feel the stresses of daily life getting the better of you is a great way to take back control of your day. Get in the habit of taking small breaks throughout your workday – make a cup of tea, watch a funny video – 5-minute breaks allow you to slow things down and mindfully think about how you can be your most productive self.
3. Get Outside. Research has shown that parkland settings significantly reduce anxiety and stress, so get outside and take a walk in the park. Nothing brightens the mood like a little sunshine and getting away from an office setting.
