Breathe and laugh your Stress away!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAL

Most of the over 80 People’s Association Employees came to this “Relax- Shop” as they need solutions to their STRESS. They wanted tips and techniques to help them cope with their stressful work-and family related situations. They all were aware that Stress can be the driving force that keeps them on their feet and ensures they push themselves to be the best they can be (positive short term stress). However, if they have too much stress it can drive them into physical, mental and emotional problems (negative long term stress). Therefore we all need to strike the right work- life balance.

How?
By taking control of our work-life balance. Give ourselves the time to do the things that are most important to us – we also call these things: Stress Busters. Stress busters are coping techniques which we can take to change ourselves or stressful situations.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

During the 1 1/2hrs event we practiced Abdominal Breathing & Progressive Muscle Relaxation. These Stress Busters are useful because they can reduce the discomfort with a stressful situation.

In addition we not only talked about the health benefits of Humour but also actively practiced smiling & laugher together.

Studies so far have shown that laughter can help relieve pain, bring greater happiness, increase immunity and reduces the level of stress hormones. It goes without saying that all participants enjoyed the humorous, fun-filled workshop and that they left the event extremely relaxed and happy!
