4 Things You Can do When You Are Stressed Out at Work

 

Work have you stressed to the max? The modern-day American works a 9-5 job which often requires long hours strapped to a desk with little time to break away and take a breather. This can make for a very stressful day which can cause us to feel tense, irritable, and anxious.

The good news is that there are some things you can do to feel a little more relaxed and centered to get through your day. Let’s take a look at 4 things you can do when you are stressed at work.

 

 
 
 

4 Things You Can Do When You Are Stressed Out At Work

 

#1 Get up: Our bodies aren’t designed to sit all day. We need to move! If you are feeling tense, overwhelmed, distracted, or frazzled, get up and take a quick walk. It doesn’t matter if it’s a walk to the restroom, or if you take a walking lunch break. Just make sure you are getting up often throughout your work day. It makes a huge difference, and when you come back you will be ready to get back to work.

#2 Sip on an Adaptogenic Tea: If the afternoon hours come around and you are absolutely exhausted, instead of having a cup of coffee, try an adaptogenic tea. It can help give you an energy boost and also calm your nerves and help you feel more centered. It’s a win, win. At Dr. Vim’s, we offer a wonderful Holy Basil Tulsi Tea, and a Rosehip Hibiscus Tea both of which can help brighten up your day and help you power through at work.

#3 Use Essential Oils: Essential oils are a powerful way to boost energy and get out of a funk. If you are feeling low on energy, try diffusing a citrus or peppermint scent, that is if you have an office. Don’t have an office? No worries, you can make a homemade lotion with coconut oil and a few drops of pure lavender essential oil to use when you need to destress and re-center.

#4 Don’t Get Too Hungry: Working long hours can make it easy to skip meals, but be mindful of when you last ate. Letting yourself get too hungry can cause blood sugar imbalances which can then make you feel more irritable and stressed. Keep your work desk stocked with healthy snacks like nuts and seeds, and pack a lunch full of clean protein, healthy fats, and complex carbs. A perfect lunch to support your body would be a salad with dark leafy greens, quinoa, a handful of walnuts, and a half of an avocado.

Stress is a silent killer and can lead to inflammation, muscle tension, and a downright bad mood. Being stressed out at work is not worth your health or happiness. If you are feeling overwhelmed, take a minute to implement one of these de-stressors. You may be surprised at what a difference it makes for the rest of your day.
