5 Stress Busters For The City Worker

Stressed by the daily grind amidst the hustle and bustle of the city? Here are ways to keep your stress levels at bay.


5. Get a hobby. Keeping your hands busy at a hobby that encourages repetitive moves can actually relax you. What’s more, it already keeps your mind off work!

4. Get a dog. Dogs are great at keeping everyday stress levels down, according to a study. It must be their affectionate and playful nature!

3. Make plans for long weekends. Research has shown that being able to unwind through mini-vacations keeps you less stressed, and recharge yourself for when you come back to work. These long weekends require a change in scenery though, so quick getaways to nearby places outside the metro would work.

2. Spend time outdoors. Take a walk and be one with nature, instead of locking yourself up in your room. Exposing yourself to natural light (aka the sun) actually boosts serotonin, the hormone responsible for making you feel happy.

1. Meditate. Never underestimate the power of meditation in helping you become more at peace.
