Some days start off well and glide by seamlessly. Other days are stressful from the start. If your workday looks like the former, take a moment to really enjoy the ease of it all. Appreciate your work environment and savor your interactions. If your workday is the latter (highly stressful), take many moments throughout the day to B-R-E-A-T-H-E. Breathing is the easiest way to calm your mind and soothe your nervous system. Breathe in deeply (counting to three), hold the breath briefly (counting to three), and breathe out slowly (counting to six). Do this until you feel your body calm down. Breathing won’t solve everything, but it will help. Try it and see.
One thought on “Good days, Bad days”
Mary Miraglia says:
I find it’s very important to develop acceptable coping methods for dealing with stress and refreshing your mind. I find reading a few minutes at lunch time clears out my brain and refreshes me for the challenges of the afternoon. Even on 10 minutes works wonders.
