Health Tip of the Day

How to Decompress at Work

Give each of the following stress-reducing strategies a try.

  • Exercise. At break time, take a 5- or 10-minute walk around the block or the office.

  • Take a deep breath. Slow, deep breathing brings more oxygen into your body, relaxes your muscles and slows your heart rate.

  • Check your posture. Sit up straight and press your lower back against your chair.

  • Get away from it all. Find a place in the building where you can escape when necessary.

  • Stand for a while. Sitting for hours stresses your back, thighs, neck and other muscles.
