Tips to Relax at Work from Surgical Alternative
Get Up and Walk Around
Getting away from your tasks to get up and walking around can be beneficial. A little exercise can increase your blood flow and help stimulate the brain not mentioning just some time to clear you head.
Take Deep Breaths
When you feel stress or anxiety coming on take some deep breaths. Deep breath helps to oxygenate the blood while also allowing you to relax.
Listen to Music or Whatever Relaxes You
In our office like many others we have soft background music playing. Music can be very comforting and soothing for many. For some it maybe talk radio or evening playing games. Listening to news I heard a study talking about how playing Angry Bird at work has made people more productive. No sure about that but I understand the premise. It is relaxing.
Laughter is something we did all the time as a child, having two of my own I understand. As we have gotten older our hectic lives get in the way of some good old belly laughing. Laughter has been proven to have many health benefits and above all it’s free.
Take time for yourself
This is one of the hardest lessons I have had to learn. As an entrepreneur and mother of two, I feel like I have to be superwomen. Unfortunately, as I have learned, there is no such thing. Getting away from your daily life and doing something that you enjoy can get you back to a sense of normalcy. Everyone needs time for themselves; we were all individuals before we were mom, dad, business owners, coaches etc. and still require time to recharge our batteries.
Small things can make a big difference and putting yourself first sometimes will help you become more relaxed and better able to deal with the stresses of daily life.
If you are feeling overwhelmed, give us a call or schedule an appointment, we have many services that can help you get back to feeling like you old self.
