Stressed at Work? Try These A-Z Tips to De-Stress and Get More Done

S: Stretch it out
Besides reducing muscle tension, stretching increases blood circulation, which increases energy.

Try these easy stretches: Clasp your hands above your head and stretch upward for a few seconds. Next, roll your head down and around a few times. Then, stand up and reach for the floor. Don't overdo it. Stretching should feel like a gentle tug, not an elastic band snapping.

T: Take a tea break
Try some chamomile tea, known for its calming properties. Or, sip an aromatic cup of antioxidant-filled green tea -- it's a wonderful way to take a few minutes for yourself, unwind and realize you're being kind to your body.
