Are you tired of feeling stressed out? It seems like there is always something, especially when you’re living in the Bay Area.
It starts with getting the kids ready in the morning, and then traffic on the freeway. Next thing you know, you are at work. The day is filled with meeting, reports, and phone calls. Before you know it the day is over. Where did the time go?
Then, you are left feeling like time is passing you by and that you are missing out. If you feel this way, you aren’t alone. More and more people are reporting an increase in stress. It’s actually nothing new. The good news is, you can take back your life.
Here are 7 stress relief tips to help you let go:
We live in an electronic age, and we always want to be plugged in, fearful we may miss out on the latest gossip. This means that your brain is never unplugged.
We really need to give our brain a break. The next time you take a break at work, leave your phone behind. You actually won’t be missing out, and you’ll be surprised at how much more effective you’ll be at the office.
Do not take any electronic gadgets with you to bed. The work will always be there the next day, and you need your rest.
2. Practice being grateful.
Want what you have. It’s easy to get caught up in wanting more. We are being pushed more now than ever. If you work in sales, it’s sell more. Even if you work in a helping profession, you are often told to see more people.
Try not to take your work home with you. Write a list of 25 things you are grateful for today. Start with a roof over your head and a warm bed to sleep in.
