Ways To Relieve Stress During Work
Stress is somehow the effect of pressures around your environment, say in your work or job, school activities and projects, community or even within your home. It is even more intense when you are after some deadline that needs to be done within time limits. Stress and pressures are dangerous combination which can lead you to depression, losing focus and disposition in life, premature aging and worst, it can cause mental disorder.
In every aspect of life, there should always be a balance between positive and negative forces. If some things happened to bring you negative effects that tend to break your control, then rest assured there will be other things that will weigh them down to balance everything. Stress, pressures and deadlines are the worst enemy of every workers or even students but without these, working would be like walking with no direction. You just walked because you saw a road before you yet, you didn't really know where will it leads you. It's like a spices which makes the food better and tastier. It solely depends on how you handle and manage it.
Coping up with the situation would be the best thing to do but for some reason, it is not always that easy. So, you have to have something that relieves you from these pressures of life, to regain the focus you once lost and to make it lighter in some way too.
Among these methods are my way of relieving stress during work. Anyway, there are lots of stress reliever you can take or do, but you cannot do it all especially when you are still working in your office. So, i only wrote those you could apply even during work.
Back pain and stiff neck are inevitable when working. For me to stare at my laptop the whole day, these are the usual occurrences. Body pain adds up stress you already had and sometimes it irritates your mood. So, a little strecthing can relieve the stress and ease the tension you have.
I don't know why, but i noticed when i am stressed, i felt thirsty. Well, drinking water is so refreshing. It cools down your body and replenishes you mind.
Listening to Music
I am a music lover person and listening to music is so far the best reliever for me. But it is not always applicable for me as i cannot play music while working, can i? Indeed, having music while working can be distracting in some ways. Though sometimes, it adds up productiveness to one worker, but not likely to everyone. It somehow makes you lose your focus and attention in your work especially when you heard one of your favorite songs. You can't help but to sing along with it! But this way, you can forget all the pressures and stress you had.
Working with empty stomach can be so annoying! You have pending work to do, files to submit, inquiry to update and with empty stomach? What the heck! You might think of eating those papers scattered before you! hahaha. Like others said, it's better to get tired with full stomach than idly sitting with your stomach empty.
Taking Stress Reliever Medicine
I know its the common way to relieve stress and it's medically advisable. I haven't tried it yet, because i'm kinda afraid to take something in without any full knowledge about its pros and cons. I usually asked some feedback from my friends who had tried before trying it myself. But, if it is medically proven and tested to be true and effective, then it might be good enough to give it a try.
These are basically from my own knowledge and experience. I know people are not likely the same. These methods might work for me, but to the others it may not. Everyone of us has different ways in escaping from unpleasant situations.
