How Do You Think Like An Athlete To Reduce Office Stress?
Most offices don’t offer on-site massages or time for meditation, but they do offer plenty of stressful situations. As a health- and fitness-conscious person, why not use proven athletic strategies to find ways to stay centered in the workplace. Map Your Route: Each night, jot down how you’ll begin your workday, what its focus will be, and one thing you commit to accomplishing. Set the Stopwatch: Pick a target time to finish a project and race against the clock-avoid “empty minutes” like you would empty calories. Run Intervals: Focus intently on the task at hand first, then take a short break, like a stress-relieving walk. Breaking during the task can lead you to believe it takes longer than it actually does. Cross-Train: Take a new route to work, rearrange your office or try on a new role or responsibility. Mix up you work routine! Breathe.
