Aruna’s At-Work or At-Home Stress Busters
When you feel over-worked sometimes the best thing you can do is stop everything. When you’re feeling overwhelmed, it is a good time to take a Daydreaming Break. It’s taking a mini vacation anytime you want.
Take a few relaxing breaths. Recognize what you are thinking about now. Are you worrying about something? Are you fixating on what might go wrong? Are you thinking you can’t handle what is happening?
Now take a few more full breaths. What do you want to happen? Imagine what you want. You may imagine that everything you do turns out perfectly; you are the talk-of- the-town at work. Every time you walk to the water cooler people call out “great presentation” or you hear them whispering, “She’s/He’s the one the bosses promoted last week.”
Or you may daydream you’ve quit your job and are traveling the world. You’re sitting on a warm beach, the sand between your toes, drinking from a coconut and writing a romantic- comedy movie script.
It’s your daydreaming session, so think of anything you want. The more of a fantasy it is, the more fantastic it will be. See it in your mind, just like you would watch a movie at the theatre.
After a few minutes, take another full breath and go back to work. You may have a new perspective of what you were doing and new ideas for tackling the problems. At the very least, you got away from the stress for a few minutes.
