  1. Take a Short Walk – The change of pace and change of scenery will do you good. Stepping away from your desk and the high pace work environment, even if for a few minutes can help clear your head and decompress. It’s a good mental break and the exercise will also do you good.
  2. Stretch – Take the advice of physical therapists and chiropractors and stretch. It will help you cope with stress and is good for your overall health.

  5. Make a list – If you feel overwhelmed make a list so you know where to start. This will also help you sort out your top priorities.
