Breathe, exercise, socialise, laugh and listen to music to keep stress at bay.
Breathe in the positivity: Try the deep breathing exercise. You inhale the positive thoughts and exhale the negative ones. It helps to make you feel better and you are ready to start the work afresh. Though one stress reducing strategy may not be helpful in all the situations, this technique helps you diminish most of them.
Indulge in physical activity: Being active can boost your feel-good antiphons and take your mind off the daily worries. Virtually, any form of physical activity, be it aerobics or yoga can act as a stress reliever. Technically speaking, physical activity can help reduce the stress to a large extent. Try going for a brisk walk in fresh air or involving yourself in any indoor/outdoor game at the workplace. It helps energise the brain’s neurotransmitters, which in turn, helps in stress busting.
Connect with people: A problem is halved when it’s shared. Maintaining a good abutment network at work helps you to remain positive. One of the keys to good stress management is building emotional strength. Talking with a friend or colleague at work won’t make the stress disappear but will definitely reduce the amount of emotional intensity you might be feeling and hence, enabling you to deal with it calmly.
Take out time for yourself: Humor has its own benefits. A boisterous laugh enhances your intake of oxygen-rich air, stimulates your heart, lungs and muscles, and aids in muscle relaxation. It relieves stress and leaves you relaxed. So, step out with folks at times and share a good laugh.
Put your earphones to use: The soothing power of melody is not hidden from anyone. Listening to music has a tremendously positive effect on your mind as well as the soul. Musical form and structure reduces emotional distress and produces a sense of calmness and familiarity within you. It is considered more compatible with relaxation than verbal stimuli, as music is processed mainly in nonverbal areas of the brain. So go ahead and rock on!
