A stress-filled day at the office can lead to a stress-filed evening at home ... unless you take some steps to manage that work stress.

Recommended Book:  Adrenalin and Stress           

Some helpful tips include:
  • When it's time to leave the office ... be sure you fully leave via body and mind.
  • Try to detach emotionally and maybe even vocalize it as your walking out the door.

As your day progresses try to process even the tense situations with a touch of humor to lessen building stress.  If the heat gets turned up in the office atmosphere take your break on a tropical beach with the sun warming your back via a metal mini-vacation.  Tap into your right brain where loving and expressing lie and think pleasant thought about your family by a quick stroll down happy memory lane.  

When you arrive home greet everyone warmly, then "get lost" for about 10 minutes to decompress.  "Do not pass go" when you return home until you've changed out of your work clothes into more comfortable attire.  Maybe you changed into a warm-up suit ... good, now do some aerobics to decrease your stress!

Then before you know it ... it's time to jump out of bed and head to work again!    Try the following stress relievers to keep the morning rush under control: 
  • Actually calculate with paper and pencil how much time it takes you to get out the door and off to work in a calm manner, allowing extra time for those minor disasters, like traffic jams, buttons popping off, and squabbles with the kids.
  • Make sure everyone in the household has their own alarm clock and is responsible for themselves.
  • Say "no TV" in the morning before all arrive at the breakfast table.
  • Plan and do ahead for the morning by laying out clothes, lunches, school bags, etc.
  • Establish routine ... like it or not we all work best with less stress and ritual patterns.
