Stress Relief Tool – Change Something

One simple change can help you get unstuck and provide you with stress relief.

Have you ever felt stuck in your job, relationship or with a particular project? And have you stressed over being stuck, creating a vicious cycle? If you said yes, you are with the vast majority of us.

The good thing is that there is a simple thing you can do to get unstuck. By changing something in your life, you change your energy – often for the better. For example, you can:

  • Change the arrangement of furniture in one room of your home. Pick the living room and reposition your couch and TV and see how it feels.
  • Change the organization of your desk. Maybe move your computer monitor from the right side of your desk to the left, or vice-versa. Replace a picture with a fresh one, put that stack of papers in a filing cabinet out of site, and/or try a seat cushion on your chair that enhances your comfort.
  • Get a new hair style – shorten the length, change the color or curls – whatever makes you happy.
  • Grow or shave your beard – especially if you have a 5:00 pm shadow at 8:00 a.m. like I have. Because I can grow my beard so easily, I like to shave it and grow it back every once in a while, to give me new energy.

By changing something up in your life, you create a new energy that will likely help you get unstuck and provide you with stress relief.
