The workplace is stressful because success, belonging, and knowing how to manage yourself and others while remaining credible are very important. People feel pressured day-to-day and push themselves to their limit and to keep their head above water. Stress effects the social realm but more importantly, it effects your body.
Employees must evaluate their feelings and be in tune with their emotions. Not only should the employee be able to recognize they are stressed, they need to be able to find a way to help ease the tension of the daily grind.
The key to beating stress is to find an appropriate outlet for it. According to the infographic, 15 minutes of exercise each day can increase a persons life by 3 years. That is a lot of time to enjoy oneself. Out of the five stress relievers listed, (acupuncture, exercise, massage, yoga, and reiki) exercise and yoga, are by far the most feasible forms of stress relief. To think, or not think, yoga could be your thing (it also helps you become more in tune with your body and its limits). If you really need to think or blow off steam, get out there and go for a run.
You only get one life. Get to know yourself a better. Take control of your stress. Create better energy in your life and at the workplace. [via]597
