Those working in an office environment, sitting behind a desk, surrounded by people, going from meetings to meetings and being involved in projects with deadlines surely recognize themselves when we talk symptoms of feeling agitated, restlessness, low energy level, pains in neck, shoulder, lower back and possibly also headaches. Don’t stress, try these 5 steps to RELAXATION!

1. Breathe

Whenever I advise people to breathe some will start giggling by looking at me as if I was crazy – of course they’re breathing! Calm down people, what I mean is, as soon as your breath is high up your chest or throat it’s time to sit down, close your eyes (or look out the window) and bring your breathing down to your belly. Drop all your thoughts, plans and actions and breathe. Set a timer for 1 minute if this is all the time you have in between the madness and feel how the tension flows out.

2. Clear your Mind

Bringing the focus on your breathing, your mind automatically no longer has control over you. Try to hold this state of being for as long as you can, keep focusing on your breathing and notice how you can approach things steadily and move mountains if necessary afterwards. And remember this, a clear mind is…..a clean desk! πŸ˜‰
