Greg Lane, DACM, LAc, our San Diego campus' Director of Clinical Services, was recently published in the Occupational Health and Safety Magazine. Greg shared "8 Tips for Managing Stress and Anxiety in the Workplace", beginning with self-care at home:
"Make sure you get enough sleep. The actual amount differs from person to person, so pay attention to how much sleep you need to feel rested. Research suggests that it is a good idea to avoid screens (phones, tablets, and laptops), difficult or emotional reading, and vigorous exercise before bed, but everyone is different and if you need the TV to fall asleep, that's fine as long as it isn't a disruption. If you are having serious sleep problems, consult a professional.
Before you leave for work, give yourself time to prepare nutritional and balanced snacks and a healthy lunch. Worrying about what to eat can cause stress and anxiety. You are less likely to hit the vending machines or fast food places if you come to work prepared."
The publication, an industry leader for over 85 years, attracts hundreds of thousands of monthly viewers to its website. For all 8 tips, read the full article here.
