Simple Stress Busters

If your stress results from the daily grind and changing jobs isn’t an option, make simple de-stressing techniques part of your day.

“Exercise is one of the best stress busters, because it forces deep breathing,” says Bob Losyk, speaker, consultant and author of Get a Grip! Overcoming Stress and Thriving in the Workplace. “Deep, cleansing breaths combined with shoulder shrugs and head rolls help muscles to relax. Even those little squeeze balls help relieve muscle tension throughout the day.”

And don’t be afraid to show some emotion. Studies show that both laughter and tears are natural stress mitigators.
