How To Bring Yourself Back To Calm When You Feel Stressed At Work

This is how to bring yourself back to calm when you feel stressed at work, or anywhere else for that matter! This is my number 1 hack to bring myself back to a calm place when I feel stressed or overwhelmed.

First you need to find a place where you won’t be disturbed. If you are in the office, you might want to try:

  • a prayer room
  • the changing room
  • a bathroom
  • a meeting room
  • an office
  • you car!

Then follow this easy breathing pattern until you feel relief:

  • breathe in for the count of 4
  • hold for the count of 4
  • breathe out for the count of 4
  • hold for the count of 4

Make sure that you breathing deeply from your stomach, rather than from your chest. Keep practising this pattern for as long as you need until you feel calm again.

The reason this is so powerful is because you have to focus on the instructions. While your brain is busy following and implementing the instructions, and slowing down your breathe, there is less space for your stressed out thoughts. And you get instant relief ๐Ÿ™‚
