Very interesting! There is no doubt that stress is becoming an increasing problem at work as we all seem to be multi-tasking nowadays. My favorite stress relief activities are running, hiking, gardening, bird-watching and fishing. Thanks for sharing this article and giving this topic the attention it deserves.
Your stress relieving activities do sound very relaxing – unless of course you are my husband on a fishing trip and not being able to catch anything 🙂 Although as I tell him, it’s being out enjoying nature that you should be enjoying! Glad you enjoyed the interview – appreciate your thoughts as well! Here’s to working towards having a stress-free life (or at least without the stress that can cause health issues!)
Thank you for the great info – really appreciate it. I have heard a couple of unconventional tricks to combat workplace stress. I´ll share one of them what should do the trick for most of the people. Make a game out of workplace stress – a bingo card about causes of your stress. It should included all the situations that are stressing you out during the time in the office. Every time such an issue rises, make an X to a certain box. If you reach a Bingo, treat yourself with something good.
I think this is something everybody should try as it sounds really helpful.
You’re very welcome Mat. I’ll have to try the activity you suggested next time things get a little stressful around here. Thanks for sharing!
Stress is always a part of our life. Regardless of whether we work or not, we experience stress.
I’ve found these tips quite helpful, Thanks!
