Dealing with stress at your desk can mean you go home without a knot in your neck, without a tension headache and being able to look forward to a pleasant evening. All you need is a few minutes for these things.

1. Improve Your Posture

One of the easiest and quickest ways to de-stress at your desk is to sit up straight. This improves your posture and will give you an energy boost. Squaring our shoulders and standing or sitting up straight also imbues us with feelings of self-esteem and confidence. According to research by Erik Peper, PH.D., slouching could potentially lead to depression and decreased energy levels. The great thing is that you can practice this anywhere, anytime, at home, in the office, or on the move to a business meeting.
