This past year, anxiety and stress levels have been sky high. 

The job market has changed drastically and people that have been working in the same jobs for years have suddenly found themselves facing new and difficult challenges. 

It is totally normal to experience stress surrounding your job. 

That being said, you definitely want a few tricks up your sleeve to help you manage your stress levels so that you can do your job to the best of your ability— and keep your sanity! 

Read on to hear how to chill out when you’re stressed about work. 

1. Exercise 

Exercise is a magic trick you can use to help manage your stress! No matter what kind of exercise you do- yoga, running, cycling, or weight-lifting, exercise can help lower your overall stress levels. 

When you exercise, it releases endorphins that will help you feel good and think positively! 

In addition, when you are exercising, it will help get your mind off of the problem that you are experiencing. Sometimes the best way to solve a problem or cool off is to take some time away to refocus. 

Try exercising before your workday or doing something like taking a short walk on your lunch to add in some exercise to your workday. 

2. Try Out CBD 

CBD oil, or cannabidiol, is a tool that can be incredible for stress management. 

Although CBD oil does come from the cannabis plant, it does not get you high and it is totally safe to use at work. 

CBD can help with stress such as social anxiety, public speaking, or other challenges. People have reported that after taking CBD oil products, they feel an overall relaxation in their body while still remaining productive and on-task. 

Try something easy and tasty like CBD mints while you’re at work to test out how it can help you with stress management! 

3. Keep a Journal 

Another trick that is super easy and inexpensive to incorporate into your daily routine is to keep a journal. 

In this journal, you can keep track of what you are grateful for every day. This will help you start your day with a positive outlook and help you tackle challenges at work. 

Another option is to write out all of your daily frustrations at work. Writing things down can help you see the problem from a different angle. Writing things out can help you feel an immediate sense of release, as well as track the things that frustrate you so that you can develop a strategy to manage this.
