It doesn’t matter what you do for a living, from time to time, you’re going to get stressed at work. It happens to all of us.

It’s just a part of life, but there are several simple yet effective tips that you can do that help reduce stress and let you carry on with your day with less pent-up frustration. Learn more in this blog post and be sure to contact Augie’s today for comprehensive commercial cleaning services in Detroit!

Live a Healthy Lifestyle

It’s been proven that eating a nutritional diet and getting regular exercise does wonders to reduce your stress levels. Make sure to follow your parents’ advice from when you were a child and eat your fruits and vegetables. Also, add lean proteins and whole grains to your diet and you’ll definitely feel happier and healthier during your time at work. We understand that it’s fast and easy to just grab some processed food and a cup of coffee in the morning or to swing by the nearest fast food restaurant during your lunch break, but you won’t be doing your body or your mind any favors. You also need to make yourself get at least seven to eight hours of sleep every night. This will help you to feel alert and ready for the day right from the get-go.

Don’t Push Yourself Too Far

You’re a hard worker, we understand. Your willingness to put in the extra hours and go above and beyond expectations at work is what got you where you are today. However, you want to ensure that you’re not burning yourself out. We’re not saying not to work hard, but set realistic expectations for yourself every day and if you feel like you’re taking on more than you can handle, make yourself take a breather.

Take a Vacation

You’re given PTO days for a reason, don’t let them go to waste! If you feel yourself getting overly frustrated at work, put in a request for some time off. Whether you take a vacation to the beach or simply stay at home and have some quality time on your couch, taking some time away from your job is one surefire way to reduce your stress.

In today’s day and age, it can feel like you are always on the clock. From responding to emails to taking phone calls to writing text messages, etc. it’s truly become difficult to separate yourself from work, but it’s very important that you do. Shut down your devices during your lunch break to ensure that you’re enjoying some time away from work, and when you’re off the clock, distance yourself from work unless it’s an emergency.

Don’t Forget to Take Breaks

We know that you’re a busy person and that you have a lot to get done throughout the day, but it’s incredibly important for you to rest your mind and your body during the day. It’s been found that taking breaks increases creativity as well as productivity while working for long periods of time without breaks will cause stress and wear you out. Whether it’s a simple walk around the building or resting your eyes for a few minutes in a quiet room, it’s going to help you relieve some stress and actually will help you be a better worker.
