How to De-Stress at Work

Savvy Readers Dish How They De-Stress at Work

I asked you recently what you do on those days when you're stressed and stuck in the office. Hours seem to stretch on when you're frustrated, so take a breather and read these great comments from fellow Savvy readers:

 

  • I usually just stop what I'm doing (because I know I'm not going to be any more efficient working while I'm freaking out) and I just get off my desk and walk anywhere (either outside to get some air and some sunshine, or around the building). Sometimes I'll just to go the private one-person restroom in the building and stretch and just...breathe in there. Another option is just call up my co-worker and vent. That helps, too. — Frenched
  • I use the internet to destress — I'll cruise through the part of my RSS reader that's mostly visual, design sites that make me happy. Then, I'll try and take one moment and focus on why I'm stressed and what to do to fix it. It usually works. —
  • Breathing exercises totally work for me! And of course, just getting away from my desk and getting a little distance and perspective on what's going on. —
  • Slip into the bathroom for some yoga stretches. —
  • I hang out here on the Sugar pages! — bellakaoru

I love bellakaoru's tip, and I'm definitely going to try out 's yoga stretching in the bathroom suggestion (although I will probably skip the cobra position)!
