How to Recover from Work Stress

Hamilton Lindley Work Stress

Awareness of stress recovery

The recovery paradox

1. Mentally distance yourself from your job.

2. Make use of microbreaks throughout the working day.

  • short bursts of meditation or relaxation,
  • setting aside time to eat a healthy snack,
  • engaging in enjoyable social interactions, or
  • engaging in activities that call for some degree of cognitive attention (like reading).

3. Take into account your preferred healing activity.

4. Give high-effort recovery activities a top priority.

5. Modify your surroundings for the best restoration.
