6. Identify And Address What Is Known As Self-Imposed Stress
Sometimes, stress is real and it is caused by situations that are out of hand, situations we have absolutely no control over. Other times, stress is self-imposed: we repeatedly and unnecessarily stress ourselves, creating problems that are often not even there. This is why it is essential to stop this self-imposed stress and to address them.
7. Take Some Time To Meditate!
There are many ways in which you can relieve stress at your workplace, in order to work less and be more productive at the same time. Two of the most efficient and commonly used stress relieving techniques include melotherapy and meditation. All you have to do is to get yourself a sound system and a CD with your favorite tracks, or even some nature sounds. Listening to a relaxing song, even for only a few minutes a day, can truly help you relax and ease all the anxiety, especially if it has been building up inside you for the past few months and you feel like you are walking on the edge.
At the same time, meditation can be equally efficient for relieving stress, not to mention that studies have revealed meditation can improve neuroplasticity and positively alter the neural pathways in your brain, thus making you more and more resilient to stress and highly demanding situations.
