Chronic stress on the job leads to a myriad of health issues and high turnover, both of which negatively impact an organization’s productivity.

While we can’t always immediately change our stressors, we still need to find regular periods of rest and relaxation to maintain our well-being. Finding the right relaxation technique can help you balance your nervous system, feel more relaxed and better cope with life’s stressful challenges.
