Stress Tip

EXERCISE MORE OFTEN. A common misconception is that exercise will make you more tired; regular exercise can actually boost your morale and energy levels. Go for a walk during lunch, take the stairs instead of the elevator, and go for a jog or hit the treadmill when you get home. If possible, ask your employer about an adjustable desk, or one that can allow you to switch between sitting and standing. This will actually help you burn calories and significantly reduce the amount of physical stress placed on your body. Being active won’t make stress disappear, but it will reduce some of the emotional intensity that you’re feeling, clearing your thoughts and letting you deal with your problems more calmly.
