2. Take a Mini Mental Vacation
While it would be nice to take a real vacation every time things got stressful at work, that isn’t a realistic possibility for most. But a mental vacation is something everyone can afford, and also a helpful tactic for combating stress.
Forbes recommends picturing “one of the most relaxing scenes you can imagine,” and engaging “as many senses as you can by thinking about what you’d see, hear, smell, touch, and taste if you were really enjoying that relaxing scene.” Just a few short minutes of this can do wonders for de-stressing both your brain and your body.
