5 Ways To De-Stress At Work

Sometimes it seems like we spend more time at work than we do anywhere else. Therefore, it’s important to make your work space as comfortable as possible. Because when you’re getting stressed at work, you’re probably going to take it home with you. Here are 5 ways to de-stress:

  1. Decorate your office
    Whether it be a nice photo of you and someone who makes you happy or seasonal decorations, decorating your office can break up some monotony and put a smile on your face.
  2. Start a gratitude journal
    Go out and buy a little journal that makes you happy, then write anything you’re thankful for in it throughout the day to remind you to stop sweating the small and stressful stuff.
  3. Get organized
    Get a notepad for each project your working on, make a list, and start putting everything together. When you’re organized you can see everything right in front of you and become less stressed.
  4. Get out of the office
    Don’t eat your lunch in your cubicle,Β  go out and take a walk and take in a new sight to freshen up the work day.
  5. Don’t take it home with you
    When you’re putting on your jacket and grabbing your bag, leave behind the work stress that is weighing on you. You worked all day on it, you have all day tomorrow, you don’t need to bring it home with you.

  1. Excellent tips, and often overlooked. They help though! Try to keep these in mind and have done [although at times forgotten!] most of these. In the past, wouldn’t go outside as much but it arguably helps the most.

    While reading this it almost felt like tips from a recent book read by me regarding feng shui. Many are in fact identical.

    As Plato once said:

    “Beauty of style and harmony and grace and good rhythm depend on simplicity.”

    Be well!

  2. Great tips! Took me a while to realise how much going out for lunch made a difference!
    The company I work for has just made us take personal photos off our work PC’s, my screen saver was a pic of my sister and I on holiday which made me smile all day!! I’m tempted to take in a massive photo frame to replace it!

  3. Good idea to have a gratitude journal at work. I do it at the end of the day and sometimes I do it in my head if I am getting upset about things, but I think writing it down is more helpful for some reason.
