Work stress is almost a given, especially if you live in America. In fact, I believe it’s to a point where “just” a 40-hour work week is often seen as unacceptable — no wonder we’re so stressed! And as you know, stress means unhealthy habits and choices. Unhealthy habits and choices mean more doctor visits. And more doctor visits means…. $$$$$$!!
So for today’s thrifty post, I want to introduce you to Enozia Vakil from Beauty Junction Online, here to help us tackle work stress and relax a bit more.
Proud of your multitasking skills but hate how you end up feeling stress and on the edge all the time? Juggling work and home life can be tough, and it can leave you feeling frazzled.
Follow these 5 actionable tips and tricks to tackle just that, and more!
Ditching the phone and other distractions may seem like the ideal thing to do when it comes to focusing on your work and beating work stress, but that’s not always the case. Why not use technology to your benefit?
A quick browse through your phone’s app store will give you tons of organizational apps to choose from- download the one that suits your need, and use it to plan out your day (or week) in advance!
Don’t underestimate the power of deep breathing- taking a break for a couple of minutes and just taking slow, deep breaths can literally work like magic, and can help you stay more grounded and focused. Deep breathing on a regular basis also has a positive impact on the mind and body, and you’ll find yourself feeling more fresh and active throughout the day if you practise it regularly.
The Quick Fix
One of the easiest and quickest ways to tackle work stress in minutes is to use the power of essential oils- from peppermint to lemon, you’ll find many different oils that can help you relax and de-stress almost instantly.
Lavender oil is one of the best essential oils to use on a daily basis to keep yourself calm and relaxed- it has been in use as a natural remedy for sleep apnea and many other health conditions too.
Stepping out of home and exercising is another less implemented way to tackle stress in minutes. Exercising isn’t just to lose weight and stay active- it also helps release the ‘feel good’ hormones in the body, which can help fight stress quickly, and you’ll find yourself feeling more upbeat and positive post a short walk or a 10 minute stretching session.
You’ll be surprised at how our furry companions can help you reduce stress and anxiety levels so quickly! Be it dogs, cats or even rabbits- just spending a few moments cuddling with them, or even looking at some cute viral video online, can have your stress melting away in moments.
If you have a pet, spend some time with them, give them all the cuddles, and you’ll be amazed to see how great you feel afterwards.
So how about it? Ready to decompress and relax a bit?
