It may not be obvious to everyone but the key to stress relief is switching to doing something which is not stressful. Here are some stressless things which you can do at home or on the job.
RELIEVE STRESS AT HOME OR AWAY FROM HOME–
Associate with non-work friends
Relax with your favorite music
Use your hands and not computer for an interesting hobby
Get a massage
Take a walk preferably outdoors
Pray, meditate, or think about something other than work
Read or watch something which makes you laugh
Stop arguing over politics, sports, religion, or beliefs which you can’t change
Have some sex
Take a shower or bath
RELIEVE STRESS ON THE JOB–
Celebrate small successes with food and/or drink
Stop thinking about past mistakes or failures as being overly important because they will probably be unimportant a month or year from now
Do many similar small tasks all at once
Divide a large task into smaller steps
Be more selective in your information intake so you don’t drown in it
Don’t procrastinate at a task because you will be stressed when you start running out of time
Don’t work evenings and weekends except in emergencies
Find a less stressful job
