Our work live can be very stressful. And to add fuel to the fire one also needs to think about the chores that one needs to complete post working hours. In order to get your life in order and to reduce your day time stress there are several easy tips and tricks that you can try.
Start your day a few minutes earlier that you intend to. If you hit the snooze button every time the alarm rings you increase the risk of running late for work and completing your personal tasks. Hence starting your day a few minutes ahead of schedule will help you out. This gives you time to eat a healthy breakfast and complete your chores.
Spend the first few minutes of the morning meditating. This will help you to relax and focus on your day. The power of meditation is beyond imagination and you will be surprised at the amount of energy and relaxation you will experience during the entire day.
If you begin to feel stressed out at work then drink a glass of ice cold water and take a break for a few minutes. During this time you can either choose to take a short nap or walk around for a few minutes. Napping during your lunch break will help you to relax and unwind and will reduce your stress levels drastically.
Massages are a great way to reduce day time and office stress. Use your lunch hour for a massage session. Focusing on stress related areas like the back of your neck, lower back and shoulders as well as your arms and legs will release the tension and you will be able to relax automatically.
Stretching at your desk while you are at work or simply exercising by doing stomach or butt crunches will help you to lower your stress levels. You can exercise without anyone knowing too. If your stress levels are too high too handle then use a stress ball to help you to lower your stress levels.
