EMB# 180: Reduce Stress in the Workplace


We all know what it’s like to be stressed out at work. We know what it’s like when a boss, coworker or even employee stresses us out. So I put together this show to help you better understand how to reduce stress in the work place.

Stress plays such a vital role in our overall health. If we don’t reduce stress in the work place, other health issues are sure to arise.  Here are some of the main topics I covered in this show.

#1 Processed Food

If we don’t start paying attention to the toxins we’re putting in our body that is only increasing our stress levels and weakening our body from the inside out we won’t be able to reduce stress in the work place.

Packaged food, those with lists of ingredients that take up the entire back of the package usually entail ingredients that we shouldn’t be consuming. Our body has difficulty recognizing, processing and utilizing these substances therefore more stress accumulates on our body.

#2 Cosmetics

Our skin is our biggest organ, therefore at times we absorb toxins through our skin at a rate equal to consuming toxins through food. If we want to reduce stress in the work place it’s absolutely essential we start paying attention to what we’re putting on our body. We need to start reading ingredients on packages of cosmetics the same as we do food.

#3 Environment

I’ve talked about environment before, in this case, especially concerning how to reduce stress in the work place, we need to pay attention to what kind of environment we have in the work place. Who is stressing us out, why, how can we make the situation better. By ignoring the issue, by not taking action, we’re missing out on how to reduce stress in the work place.

#4 Hydration

Hydration is one of the best ways to flush out the toxins in your body that is putting more stress on you. Look to filtered water, and don’t be afraid to flavor water with herbs and fruit to change it up.

#5 Dangers of Stress

If we don’t take action to reduce stress in the workplace we’ll soon deal with a number of health issues that include:

  • Self confidence
  • weight gain
  • dis-ease
  • headaches
  • allergens
  • sleep issues
  • pain/inflammation
  • high blood pressure
  • stroke
  • heart attack
