  • 10 Relaxation Tips for Busy Professionals

    Does your career often leave you feeling stressed? If so, you’re not alone. According to statistics published by the American Institute of Stress, 40% of workers reported that their job was very or extremely stressful, and 25% viewed their job as the No. 1 stressor in their life. And because stress can make it difficult for you to focus, it can affect job performance, potentially leading to even more stress.

    Fortunately, there are steps you can take to manage your stress, relax, and enjoy a better quality of life:

    1. Eat a nutritious diet.
    2. Drink plenty of water.
    3. Get enough sleep.
    4. Exercise (you may even be able to do a few calming yoga poses in your office).
    5. Meditate.
    6. Use positive affirmations.
    7. Practice deep breathing.
    8. Spend time on self-care (this could involve going out to dinner with friends, visiting the spa, or even just taking a short walk outside).
    9. Take periodic breaks during the workday.
    10. Find a healthy work-life balance.
