Immediate Stress Reduction
Updated: Mar 21
Step 1: Take a break
5x5 Rule: Plan actively 5 times 5 minutes per day for your break
Step 2: Change perspective
Change the scenery, i.e. go for a quick walk around the block
Search and focus on something really nice that makes you a good feeling
Step 3: Use your breath
10x Let Go Breathing
With every inhale you repeat the word "let"
With every exhale you repeat the word "go"
Step 4: Set your focus
With closed eyes, ask yourself again what is important right now for you
Then ask yourself what is important for your work at the moment
Continue asking yourself what do you need to fulfil what you need to do
Note whatever comes into your mind in this small meditation
Bring your focus on your needs and plan some time and space today to fulfil your needs
Set priorities to fulfil your needs first
Step 5: Activate your body
Eye, Ears, Head Massage
Body Tapping: Tap from your feet to your head your whole body to activate your energy again
(Optional) 5 min dancing / body movements
Don't stress. Do your best. Forget the rest.
