STEP AWAY FROM YOUR DESK

One of the main things that peo­ple don’t do enough is get out­side and breathe in some fresh air. It’s re­ally ob­vi­ous, but you need to get a bit of sun­light and vi­ta­min D.

THE ‘7/11’ BREATH­ING TECHNIQUE

Breathe in for seven sec­onds and out for eleven sec­onds. For me, it’s bril­liant be­cause it re­ally low­ers your blood pres­sure and brings you back into the mo­ment. Peo­ple don’t know how to breathe prop­erly: we breathe too shal­lowly and too quickly and it can cause stress just by do­ing that. Hav­ing a breath­ing technique to use is help­ful.

GET A WORK BUDDY OR COUN­SEL­LOR

It’s re­ally im­por­tant to con­nect with some­body at work – some­one who you nd in­spir­ing, but also some­one who you can speak things through with, be­cause they un­der­stand the work and the sit­u­a­tion you’re in. If you can talk to a per­son who ap­pre­ci­ates the frame­work you’re work­ing in but can also give you de­cent ad­vice, they’ll be a great cham­pion for you in the work­place.
