We all want to enjoy a stress-free lifestyle, yet it is easier said than done. But with some simple adjustments we think you will feel the benefits right away. Stress can carry over from the work day into your personal life very easily, so let’s start at the bottom of our stress train, make changes and move forward!
~Sit up straight~
This can reduce stress in all areas of your life. When we sit compacted or hunched over, we feel more stressed and less powerful. Replicating a contracted position reminds the body of the natural contractions that occur during our stress states. Feeling strong and powerful will improve your general attitude and assist in combating stress.
Research has shown that just looking at clutter can spur the body’s production of stress hormones. Even if your job or task is generally low stress the clutter can distract you from your tasks and make it harder to focus. Inability to focus can increase stress.
~Release unrealistic goals~
Setting attainable goals is a key to reducing stress. Be proud of everything you do not matter how big or small. Acknowledge your accomplishments and create a pattern of internally-generated validation. This habit builds to resilience which is a strong element of stress-reduction.
Stick to your task at hand rather than allowing calls or emails to derail you. Set aside time to respond to emails and calls and do your best not to allow them be scattered throughout your day.
