As scheduled, we will added tip #3 for dealing with a stress in the workplace. I’m interested to know how you incorporated the breathing technique and writing tool to combat your stress from the previous weeks. This week will add another tool to your tool box.
When we feel stressed at work, it’s important we learn how to harness our emotions so we can move forward. Today will be focus on :
Use of Positive Imagery. Keeping a calming picture on your desk or on your computer background. When you feel like work has become overwhelming, stare at the image and imagine yourself there. Doing this for 60 seconds can restore your ability to cope so you can move forward without the crippling effects of stress.
If you are finding it hard to incorporate these tools thus far and find it hard to manage your stress at work, reach out to mental health professional. Long term stress effects both our mental and physical health.
Wishing Calm & Wellness,
