stress at work

How to handle stress at work/home?

We have been living in a completely different world that we did not see coming for almost two years now.

So it makes sense that we weren’t prepared for it either. Our daily rhythm was completely turned upside down. Working from home is now becoming the standard. Due to the umpteenth outbreak, the children are more at home than at school or shelter.

This creates extra pressure for everyone and stress both at work and at home. So we will also have to adapt.

You cannot achieve this in one day. It can take anywhere from 18 to 254 days for a person to form a new habit and an average of 66 days for a new behaviour to become automatic. There’s no one-size-fits-all figure, which is why this time frame is so broad; some habits are easier to form than others, and some people may find it easier to develop new behaviours. There’s no right or wrong timeline. The only timeline that matters is the one that works best for you.

In my first blog, A ‘tiny habit’ takes little effort, while the effect can be significant.

I already mentioned how you could achieve a lot with small steps.

To reduce the stress in your head (and actually in your entire body), it’s best to start with some simple movements. If you’re too busy or don’t have a gym at home, take a look at the following video.

In less than 4 minutes, I will teach you the first Tai Chi relaxation exercise within the 1m2 space.

So stop reading, stand up from behind your desk and do the following exercise!
