11 scientifically-backed ways to chill out if you are stressed at work - Evening Express
Creative activity and sports might help. Results of stress result in almost any physical problem, a fact most people know in Pray, meditate, center yourself in order to find out what your brain is telling you. Look away from others for a while to get into into your own world. Computer is off, but a good book works to get you able to meditate.

To refocus that anxiety I ask myself…Will anyone care about this in years? Another source of anxiety for me is that I constantly have to be connected to my phone. Couple days ago I had job interviews and shut off my phone for 4 hours…41 voicemails. I give myself permission to be off the grid. Eventually everyone was crazy, then the health departments outlawed cell phones and people had to leave messages when you needed to go to the bathroom or were having a beer or an iced coffee.
At the end of the dream I was very happy that the nightmare of people assuming they should be able to reach me 24 hours per day was over. The silence was golden and I could finally hear the birds chirping and the movie at the theatre. Maybe you could get that end of dream utopia if you stopped answering your phone whenever it rings now.
Used to do that when I worked at the bank, too. I screened about half my calls so I could return them when I was mentally prepared to deal with whatever XYZ customer wanted. Helped cut down on the pointless chit-chat while I was looking for their file too. I had some job interviews last week and shut off the phone for 4 hours, the result was a back log of 41 voicemails.

So I wrote the book to answer them. In my research, I found a good deal of strong scientific evidence to support the claim that stress can and does kill people or shorten our lives.

Keep up the good work and thanks for this excellent post. As Ty quoted above, and Jesus said, too, you are as you think. Rachelle, I turn off my cell phone except when I need to make a call. Funny how that works sometimes, huh? I feel younger — and happier! And looking at the engagement photos from when I was 20 against the Christmas card pics we had taken last year, I think I actually look younger too.
Go figure. Great read and great reminders.
