If so much work has gone into this, and industries are literally built to address these issues, why does the amount of stress in our lives never even begin to diminish? Some tools to put into practice that may be of temporary help;

  • Give yourself a break from work. Each day spend a moment of personal indulgence that is a statement of your willingness to enjoy life.
  • Don’t add stress to existing stress, the current level will do just fine.
  • Call on associates and friends for their different approaches to the same stresses that arise in their lives.
  • Put a vacation into your day planner. Never lose sight of the real motivation for being motivated; spoiling your family and yourself is a trend that never goes out of style.
  • Never extend your stress outward, by fostering a calm responsible demeanor it is possible that the next person you encounter might be ready to give you the means necessary to pare off some of the issues weighing upon you.

Don’t take that away by presenting that person with negativity; they will likely be in a defensive state which precludes the transmission of constructive dialogue. You can also hire Andy Core to make life easier!

One Simple Breathing Exercise to Fight Stress and Increase Productivity in the Workplace

Proper breathing can help increase your productivity in the workplace

Proper breathing can help you relieve stress and improve your productivity in the workplace.

Andy Core is an expert in Work-Life Balance, Wellbeing and Peak Human Performance.

You have deadlines closing in, an intense workload and a hectic schedule; your stress levels keep rising and your productivity in the workplace is falling as a consequence. If you are in a situation where job tasks and working environment are harming your mental well being, the reasonable thing to do is to take a moment to relax. When overly stressed, our breathing pattern changes from deep and slow breaths to quick and shallow ones. Deep breathing fully oxygenates the brain and body. It facilitates a relaxed state of mind, while short breaths make stress even worse. By following this simple exercise, which takes no more than five minutes of your time, you will be able to bring your breathing pattern back to normal, and calm yourself down.

  1. Sit on a chair with your back straight. Your lower back should not touch the chair. Avoid straining yourself; you need to be comfortable.
  2. Start inhaling fully and deeply to the count of 4
  3. Hold your breath for another count of 4
  4. Start exhaling very slowly until you reach a count of 8
  5. Wait for a count of 4 before you start inhaling again
  6. Repeat for 10 times

If a count of 4-4-8-4 is too hard for you, you can try with a count of 3-3-6-3 or 2-2-4-2. Once you manage to control your breathing, you will find that you can cope more easily with stress, which will certainly increase your productivity in the workplace.
