1. Take a walk – Go for a walk even if it’s for only 5 minutes. It will get you away from your desk, give you an opportunity to view your stress/stressors from a different perspective and allow you to return to work with a fresh perspective. Besides the exercise will do you good.

2. Grab a cup of tea – Certain herbal teas are known for their calming and relaxing properties. Try a cup of chamomile, jasmine or licorice tea when you need a break from stress.

3. Let your nose relax you – There are a number of essential oils that are known for their relaxation properties (e.g. lavender, basil, neroli, petitgrain or sandalwood). Put a few drops on a tissue and inhale. Soon you should start to feel more relaxed. NB: Do not put essential oils directly on the skin.
