Quick stress relieving techniques you can do at your desk or onsite

  • Take a deep breath: Breathing counteracts stress by slowing your heart rate and lowering blood pressure. Sit up straight, close your eyes and focus on breathing in through your nose and out through your mouth.

  • Have an avo! High potassium foods fight fatigue and stress.

  • Stretch. Sit up tall in your chair, or stand up. Stretch your arms overhead and interlock your fingers. It's a great way to release tension instantly.

  • Crank up the tunes. Music has a powerful effect on our physiological functions.
