When working in an office environment or whilst working at any job you will experience the feeling of stress. Stress can lead to anxiety, that I can personally tell you will not be your best friend… so here are a few tips on how to avoid being stressed at work.

Everyone experiences stress, its normal. Stress is a hormone known as Cortisol which is responsible for sending the body into this stressful, uncalming state – here is a simple guide on how to beat it.

1.Take a break or go for a short walk
Relax, take a break and go get some fresh air, no better cure than taking a second to clear your head. You need to get out of the stressful situation and take a minute to yourself to calm down and rethink the situation. Studies show that when places into a stressful situation, simple exercises such as walking or Tai Chi help to lower the cortisone levels found in the body.

2.Breathe slowly and deeply
