Helpful Hints on How to De-Stress At Work

With so many things goin' on in our lives it's hard not to be stressed. Here are some things at work you can do to help relieve stress at work:

1. Clench your fists as tight as possible - then release. Do this about 5 times for each hand.

2. Raise your eyebrows upward and then relax.
3. Make blowing noises with your mouth. Say, "pa", "pa", "pa", "pa" several times loosely to relax your mouth and jaws.
4. Move your shoulders up to your ears and hold for 3 counts and release. Do this about 5 times.
5. Take several deep breaths and exhale slowly.
6. Move your head from side to side slowly. Then backwards and forwards.
7. Sitting in a chair, arms straight down by your side, lean to the right then to the left.
8. If you can, take a walk during lunch. Don't eat lunch at your desk.
