Chronic stress is the worst. It kills our productivity, limits our ability to think creatively, and wreaks havoc throughout our bodies. To help keep minor stressors - like an "URGENT" email from a supervisor - from turning into chronic stress, I employ a few stretching and breathing techniques throughout my day. These stretches can all be done at your desk, in your work attire, anytime you need to hit the reset button on your stress response.
