Feeling stressed when working from home?

Working from home with no one to vent to can ruin your entire day. And if you do have someone to complain to, your constant moaning will not be doing your relationship with them any good. Worse still, being stressed can cause you to send a message or an email that you wish you hadn’t to your boss, your work colleague or your client. We can help you through those tough moments using our psychologist-recommended STOP technique. Just click on the “TAKE MY STRESS AWAY” button.

You will go through some breathing techniques and then you will be asked to think about and answer some questions. Your answers are not stored and are not seen by anyone else but yourself. We only make you write them down as writing it down makes you think about the answer more.



Stop whatever you are doing and focus on this.


Take Deep Breaths

Follow the instructions on screen or if you have sound follow the spoken instructions.
Breathe in through your nose and out through your mouth.



Observe your body, your thoughts, your feeling and your emotions. Is your heart racing? Are you sweating? Is your mouth dry? Are you angry? Are you worried? Are you stressed?
Do you need to be reacting the way you are?
How important is the issue you are stressed about?
Is this worth you being stressed over? Will it still be important this time next year?
What advice would you give to a friend if they were in your position?

Now take a moment and relax yourself.



Now continue on with your day, incorporating what you have just learned about the emotions you were feeling.
