Tap a power nap!
That’s right! Take a power nap of 10-15 minutes every few hours at work to help your mind destress and calm down. This also helps to control anxiety attacks and help you relax your mind and body both. You can take a power nap right after lunch or right after the peak hour calls and emails during the day. Set alarms to wake yourself up so that you don’t end up oversleeping!
Take frequent walks
Take frequent walks between your work hours to relax your mind. This will help in getting some physical exercise for your body as well as to get some fresh air in your system.

A lot of people take frequent walks to relax their tensed shoulder muscles and their knees from sitting in the office chair all day.
Eat healthy snacks at work
Make your snack breaks more exciting and colorful by investing in good quality food items that nourish your body. Dried fruits, nuts, granola bars, fruits, vegetable chips and lactose-free almond milk, walnut milk, pistachio milk etc. help to boost the body’s immunity and improves the functioning of the body. Quick fast food which is nutrient deficient can leave you feeling more stressed than ever!
