Stress Management Article:  Five Instant Ways to Reduce Environmental Stress - Part Two

by Ed Sykes

 

It’s time for part two of the series to reduce environmental stress in your life.  In Five Ways to Reduce Environmental Stress - Part One, I shared with you five ways you can  immediately reduce stress by controlling your environment.  Now I will share five additional ways for you to make a difference in your life, be more relaxed and productive, and reduce stress.

 

The five stress reduction techniqes are as follows:

1.     Make the Air Play Fair

Control the air humidity in your environment to a level that's comfortable for you. Too dry or very humid air can produce unpleasant environments.  Air humidity can even produce various physical symptoms. Dehumidifiers can take control of the air quality to make rooms feel more livable.  You can acquire these portable humidifiers from any department or discount store.  Must sure you acquire one with a “quiet” button to reduce the noise when running.  If needed, add a few plants to provide a bit of moisture.

2.     Lose the Clutter

Rid yourself of all the clutter that surrounds you.  Improve your time management skills so that you can prioritize what “stuff” is important and what isn’t important.  If you are not immediately working on an item, move it out of line of sight.  Not only will your environment become more visually pleasing and relaxing, but you'll avoid the stress of constantly searching for important items among the excess.

     3.     Get Rid of Static noise

Everyday we are experiencing “static” noise.  Phones ringing, computers dinging, radios playing, TVs with “talking heads” playing, coworkers interrupting, etc., are all examples of static noises.  These noises create stressors that impede our abilities to think and ultimately create work and life solutions.  They also can take their toll over time on our moods and energy. Do what you can to reduce background and unwanted noise. Turn off radios and TVs when not using them with purpose.  Reduce or turn off all computer noises if they are not necessary.  Use noise reduction materials such as partitions, curtains, etc., to quiet your environment.  When you can, take a “silence is golden” break in a quiet room to recharge your emotional and mental batteries.

4.     Make Your Workspace Work for You

Use good ergonomic techniques in your workplace to reduce the risk of repetitive strain injury, eye strain, back pain, and other uncomfortable symptoms. Pay particular attention to your stair, desk, and computer setup since most likely you will be using these items the most.  The correct setup of these items will save you years of wrist, elbow, back, and eye pain and strain.

5.     Create an Empowerment Zone

Create at work or at home a retreat for yourself to reenergize yourself both mentally and emotionally.  Not having space for this zone is not an excuse.  It can be a private room or your favorite chair or desk.  Include items such as plants, books, relaxing music, and pictures to create an environment of peace.  Use this area to think and visualize the positive things in your life.  You might want to think of future situations in your life and how you will master them for your benefit. Use this area for carrying out important tasks whenever possible.

Go apply these techniques today!  Apply what works for you and reduce your environmental stress.
