2. Watch something funny on YouTube
We all know YouTube is the heaven where all our favourite videos reside. But we also know it’s easy to fall down the rabbit hole and get caught up watching tons of videos. If that’s you, you could always head to Instagram to watch videos too.
Basically, get on your favourite funny page and laugh a little, or a lot. It’ll leave you feeling relaxed and all that work stress will just disappear.
3. Take a walk
Take a short walk around the office. Say hi to co-workers and indulge in some light office banter. Or if your office has a little room to take a minute to have a nap, you should try laying down and clear your mind.
This should perk you up and put at ease by the time you’re back to your desk.
Take slow, deep and deliberate breaths in through your nose, hold for a few seconds and let it out through your mouth. repeat this 5 times and feel the stress melt off you like ice.
Really, it’s such an underrated tip. Try it and watch a semblance of calm settle where your stress once was.
5. Play a quick game of… candy crush maybe?
There are some really nice games on your phone or system that you can indulge in whenever you get too overwhelmed. Games are a fun distraction you can enjoy for 5 minutes.
