5 Simple Tools to Keep Calm during the Work Week

1/ Stop and Breathe 

Breathe In and Breathe Out. Take 5 deep breaths in and out through the nose. Notice the coolness of the breath as you inhale and notice the warmth of the breath as you exhale.

2/ Pay Attention 

Pay attention to your 5 senses. List 2 things you can see, touch, smell, taste and hear in this very moment.

3/ Take a Walk 

If you can, go outside and take a walk because this is a great de-stressor. Notice your surroundings, smells, sights, and colours as you move your body. If your mind gets busy, refocus on your breath and try the 5 senses practice under Pay Attention above.

4/ Body Scan 

Close your eyes and bring your attention to the crown of your head. Start slowing scanning down the body noticing any tension or tightness as you move down to the soles of the feet. Repeat as many times as needed, because some people will feel relaxed after one scan, others may take multiple scans to feel the benefits.

5/ Be grateful  

Tuning into what we feel grateful for can bring us back to what is most important in our lives.  So now, write down 5 things you feel grateful for and sit with that feeling for a moment. Recognising these 5 things will flood your whole body with gratitude and joy.
