When you become your own manager and decide to work from home, you assume that life will then become stress free and easy. This trait is believed because you no longer have to work with an annoying boss, busy workplace or long commute. This isn’t always the case but with these hints and tips should help lower your stress levels.
It has been used for over 5000 years, so it must be good for something! Yoga involves stretching and holding different positions while controlling your breathing. There are plenty of courses and DVD’s which you can use to help you.
Simply walking or light jogging for about half an hour is all you need, as long as you are raising your heartbeat. Try to do it ever day and it will help you to keep and stay healthy. Exercising releases endorphins into the body; this makes you happier and reduces your stress.
Simple, but effective. Just sit back and breath deeply for a few moments, this allows you to refocus on what’s important and helps you sort out your mind.
Listen to some soothing, slow music. Sit or lie back and let the music just play in the background.
One of the easiest, for you, ways of relaxing. Just lie down and let someone else do all the work.
There are many types of meditation but just try and sit in a quiet room, away from the noise of the street, and just simply empty your mind and relax. Again, there are many classes and DVD’s out there that can teach you how to do this.
Go out and socialise, chatting and having a laugh with friends is the best way of relaxing. Try not to talk about the stresses of everyday life and work, just have a joke around and chat about fun things or something you’ve seen on TV etc.
