Stress Relief Tool – Give Your Job Some Love

Unhappy at work? Here is a simple tool to help improve your morale.

Why do we work? Well, in most cases it’s because we have to. And because we have to, our attitude may not be supportive of our stress relief efforts.

One great way to change your attitude is to write down three to five things you are grateful for regarding your job. It can be as simple as “I’m grateful for my benefits because healthcare is expensive on my own” or “I’m grateful for my paycheck because it allows me to pay for things.”

If you do that as the first thing you do at work, you will be amazed at how much better the beginning of your work day will start. And if the beginning of your day starts well, who’s to say you can’t keep that positive momentum up for the rest of the day? And before you know it, you are heading home with more energy after a less stressful day.
