    CALM DOWN – 10 Tips For Desk Workers

    In today’s fast-paced work environment, it’s easy to become stressed and overwhelmed. Whether it’s a tight deadline, a difficult project, or just a busy day, stress can take a toll on your physical and mental health. Fortunately, there are several effective ways to calm down and manage stress while sitting at your desk. Here are the 10 most effective ways to calm down at work:

    1. Take a deep breath: Deep breathing is a simple and effective way to reduce stress and calm your mind. Sit up straight and inhale deeply through your nose, hold for a few seconds, and then exhale slowly through your mouth. Repeat several times until you feel relaxed.
    2. Stretch: Take a few moments to stretch your arms, shoulders, neck, and back. This helps to release tension and improve circulation, which can help you feel more relaxed.
    3. Listen to music: Listen to your favorite music or calming sounds, such as nature sounds or white noise. This can help to reduce stress and promote relaxation.
    4. Practice mindfulness: Mindfulness involves being fully present in the moment and non-judgmentally observing your thoughts and feelings. Take a few minutes to focus on your breath and observe your thoughts without reacting to them.
    5. Use aromatherapy: Certain scents can have calming effects, such as lavender, chamomile, and vanilla. Use a diffuser or apply a few drops of essential oil to your wrist or neck to enjoy the calming benefits.
    6. Drink herbal tea: Drinking a cup of herbal tea, such as chamomile or peppermint, can help to soothe your nerves and promote relaxation.
    7. Write it down: Journaling can be a helpful way to express your feelings and release stress. Take a few minutes to write down your thoughts and feelings.
    8. Take a break: Take a few minutes to step away from your desk and take a short walk, even if it’s just around the office. This can help to clear your mind and reduce stress.
    9. Practice gratitude: Take a few moments to focus on the things you’re grateful for, such as your health, family, or job. This can help to shift your focus from stress to positivity.
    10. Laugh: Laughter is a great way to reduce stress and promote relaxation. Watch a funny video, talk to a coworker, or read a humorous book to enjoy a good laugh.

    Stress is a common part of working life, but it doesn’t have to take over. By incorporating these 10 effective ways to calm down at work, you can manage stress and promote relaxation while sitting at your desk. Remember to take care of yourself and prioritize your well-being.

    30 years ago, Tina Olivero looked into the future and saw an opportunity to make a difference for her province and people. That difference came in the form of the oil and gas sector. Six years before there was even a drop of oil brought to the shores of Newfoundland, she founded The Oil and Gas Magazine (THE OGM) from a back room in her home on Signal Hill Road, in St. John’s, Newfoundland. A single mother, no financing, no previous journalism or oil and gas experience, she forged ahead, with a creative vision and one heck of a heaping dose of sheer determination. With her pioneering spirit, Ms. Olivero developed a magazine that would educate, inspire, motivate and entertain oil and gas readers around the world — She prides herself in marketing and promoting our province and resources in unprecedented ways. The OGM is a magazine that focuses on our projects, our people, our opportunities and ultimately becomes the bridge to new energy outcomes and a sustainable new energy world. Now diversifying into the communications realms, a natural progression from the Magazine, The OGM now offers an entirely new division - Oil & Gas Media. Today, The Oil and Gas Magazine is a global phenomenon that operates not only in Newfoundland, but also in Calgary and is read by oil and gas enthusiasts in Norway, Aberdeen, across the US and as far reaching as Abu Dhabi, in the Middle East. Believing that Energy is everyone’s business, Ms. Olivero has combined energy + culture to embrace the worlds commitment to a balance of work and home life as well as fostering a foundation for health and well being. In this era of growth and development business and lifestyle are an eloquent mix, there is no beginning or end. Partnering with over 90 oil and gas exhibitions and conferences around the world, Ms. Olivero's role as a Global Visionary is to embrace communication in a way that fosters oil and gas business and industry growth in new and creative ways.
