Five Tips to Decompress after a Stressful Workday

Do you work a stressful job at SHANDS?  Are you a busy student enrolled at the University of Florida?  Whether you are a busy professional or an ambitious student, you may struggle to destress or decompress after a long day at school or work.  These are a few tips to unwind after you get home from a stressful day.

Take a Walk

Being in the office or at school may start to feel stressful, especially if you have not had any fresh air during the day.  When you get home, take the time to enjoy the fresh air by taking a walk or just sitting on your balcony and letting the breeze hit your face.  Leave your technology behind and give yourself a chance to escape all work responsibilities while you breathe in the fresh air outdoors.

Practice Calming Techniques

Being overstimulated at work can cause your mind to feel overwhelmed and overworked.  To destress quickly, consider downloading a calming app, like Calm, and listen to the calming sounds of the ocean or a simple mantra to help ground and center your mind.  These may only require five minutes of your time, but they can have lasting effects that can change the course of the rest of your day.

Stretch and Move Around

Many people do not have the ability to take walks or move around too much during the day.  They may also spend much of their time studying at the University of Florida or caring for patients at SHANDS.  However, when you get home, take the time to move your body and stretch.  Keep a yoga mat rolled up in the corner so that you can easily lie it on the floor and do some quick stretches.  This will alleviate some of the tension that builds up in your body during a stressful day, and it will increase blood flow and lower your heart rate.

Prepare for the Next Day

When you write out your daily tasks, you will be able to focus on the things that you need to prioritize.  This system can help you stay mentally and physically organized on the most pressing tasks, which will allow you to feel calmer throughout the day as things get checked off the list.
