Three Easy Office Stress Relievers

Work is hard… that’s why it’s called work (and not play!) Consumed, busy, overwhelmed are all foundations to building high levels of stress for people.  The American worker, and business owners are in a constant state of stress. Numerous studies show that job stress is the single largest factor for source of stress in American adults.  In fact, the level of stress in the American worker has been progressively escalating.  The perception of having little control and lots of demands are in direct correlation with increased rates of heart attacks, hypertension, and other illnesses.

Good news is we have remedies to the stress. There are easy, quick techniques to ally stress and feel better throughout the day.  Coffee and sodas will give you a quick caffeine hit, but these techniques will make you feel better longer and give you an energy boost without chemicals.  If you do these on a consistent basis, your perception of well-being will increase.

Here are three quick, easy ways to relieve the stress that you’re feeling right now.  Take a moment for yourself and help relieve stress, get more done and find some balance and happiness in your work day.

  1. Take a walk! Step away from the computer, and take a walk! Walk around your desk, walk around the office, if you can, walk outside around the block!  Moving will increase blood flow, and increase happiness. Here’s an article on why getting up and moving is so good for you!
  2.  Laugh! Have a laugh right now! Whether that’s watching a funny comedian on Youtube, or talking to the office funny person. Laughing helps increase oxygen intake and releases endorphins, helping you feel better. We all want to feel better, and laughter is the quickest route to it.
  3. Breathe! If you can’t have a laugh or take a walk, then this breathing exercise will help. Close your eyes, inhale deeply to a count of four. Hold your breath for a count of four. Exhale for a count of four, and hold again for a count of four.  You will increase oxygen, release endorphins and feel more awake for the challenges ahead of your busy day.  You can do this exercise during different times of the day, or put a timer on and practice for 3 to 5 minutes.

Here’s to a new, more relaxed you!
