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:
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- Get out of the office
Don’t eat your lunch in your cubicle, go out and take a walk and take in a new sight to freshen up the work day.
- 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.
