    On my lunch break I like to listen to music or podcasts, read books on my library app or find something to google that I’m curious about (like “why do people yawn when they hear someone else yawn?” and other everyday questions you might think of), just to make sure and give my brain a good break to think about something else for a while. Helps me feel refreshed for the next half of my day, and less like I’m carrying the stress of the first half of my day with me.

    If I’ve had a particularly long, stressful, and overwhelming day and I feel really frazzled and upset sometimes I like to go home and spend some time in an environment without too much sensory input. Like turning down the lights and putting on quiet calming music or nature sounds to block out any other sounds in your house/apartment/etc. And just take some time to rest.

    I like to take walks during my break to feel refreshed and ready to take on the second half of my day. I also listen to podcasts to give my mind a break from children activities. Getting myself a little treat, whether it be a coffee or chocolate bar, helps me de-stress as well.

    Take a break if I’m getting stressed.

    Dont’ go all out as I could overextend myself.

    Rest when I get off of work.

    My techniques that I have found to release stress is to walk, read, talk and hug my kids.

    everyone through life develops their own methods of stress relief. personally i like to read, cook, and workout. a good “fit” can be cathartic.

    Turning off from work as soon as I leave the center and actually taking my breaks.

    There’s a lot of ways to release stress. Deep breathing is a strategy that I use often, even in my personal life. I think having a good work and home life balance is useful for this. When you “take your work home with you” either literally or figuratively, it brings stress home with you from the day rather than leaving it behind to start a new day tomorrow. I think it’s important to go into each day refreshed and look at it as an opportunity for new beginnings. When I’m feeling stressed, I also like to read or go on a walk.

    I feel that on the job, deep breathing helps. Another thing I do is making sure to keep up with my self care and mental health outside of work, so that I feel good when I am at work.
