During a busy workweek, it is easy to become subsumed with the stress of the daily grind. It is important to take time for yourself when you are not at work. Studies have shown that nearly 75% of Americans feel that the stress they experience at work is unhealthy. At work, it is important to take advantage of paid breaks and unpaid lunches. Before and after work, take some time to relax by reading the newspaper, watching a television show, or doing a fun activity, such as a puzzle. Relaxing before and after a stressful shift helps refresh a person’s brain pathways, making it easier for them to focus on the tasks that they need to complete.
