There is always this feeling of dread when the thought of going back to work kicks in at the end of a great weekend. So, how do you manage this form of dread? Here are a few simple tricks you can try.
When you spend at least five minutes of every day to meditate, then you cultivate a peaceful space in your mind, leaving no room for anxious thoughts. According to Healthline, meditation is an ancient form of healing that paves the way for a person’s so-called “inner harmony.” Practicing this would surely help you achieve calmness and concentration whatever day it is.
Watch your diet
Research shows that excessively consuming sweetened food can trigger anxiety. So instead of giving in to your guilty pleasures, opt for healthier food options. Avocados, blueberries, almonds, yogurt, and salmon are some of the recommended eats that would help manage feelings of discomfort and stress. Aside from that, Tamar Chansky, author of Freeing Yourself from Anxiety, recommends that you grab a glass of water to provide slow energy your body can use for recovery.
Performing physical activities is a great way to reduce feelings of anxiety as it releases endorphins or happy hormones. According to the Anxiety and Depression Association of America, fitness exercises ease fatigue, promote alertness, and improves the thinking process. So when there are less tension and stress coursing through your body, you would be both mentally and physically prepared to take on possible tasks in the workplace.
Light a candle
It is said that using scented candles alleviates feelings of worry. According to Healthline, aromatherapy sends signals to your nervous system and your brain. It helps alleviate stress, promote relaxation, and also improves sleep. Essential oils like lavender, rose, jasmine and basil are the best calming scents that you might want to try.
Keep a journal
Jotting down your thoughts and feelings is a healthy way to deal with stress. It’s like putting form to your worries so they won’t have to stay in your head. It becomes your own emotional outlet, reducing that feeling of restlessness. Also, you can try listing down things you are grateful for as it improves your frame of mind. You banish the negativity in your head and replace them with healthy and happy thoughts.
