Take time out for ONESELF. This time can be as short as 10 to 15 minutes. This time will allow you to recharge and let go. Some things you may do during this time out:
· Take a walk
· Read a book
· Get a massage (my favorite)
· Movie binge
As we know, stress can be harmful to our mental and physical well-being if mismanaged. The benefit of letting go allows you to control how you respond to stress rather than stress controlling you.
We are very fortunate to have a wonderful employee benefit such as the Employee Assistance Program. This program has plenty of resources and tools to help you LET GO.
