Fight work day stress with these simple tips


If you spend most of your day staring at a computer screen, you no doubt have suffered from an achy back, tension headaches, wrist pain or sluggishness. Banish stress and exhaustion with this simple trick from Ole. “To fight stress throughout the day, I get up from my workspace and stretch,” says Ole. One of his favorite ways to relax can be done without getting out of your office chair.

Begin by sitting tall in your office chair. Close your eyes and take a deep inhale as you raise your arms up over your head so that your finger tips point towards the ceiling. As you exhale fold forward and touch your palms to the floor. Focus on constricting your stomach muscles while continuing to breathe steadily. Hold this position for a minute, then keeping your back flat, bring yourself to an upright position as you inhale and reach your fingertips towards the ceiling

It’s also a good idea to have something green on your desk to bring the peaceful outdoors into your office. “Bamboo is a wonderful choice, because it’s beautiful, sculptural, and grows in any kind of light, or lack thereof,” he says. If the weather is nice, skip your afternoon coffee fix and take a walk outside your workplace for some fresh, energizing air. Sometimes nature is the best cure for workplace stress.
