Calmer Office TipsReduce stress and anxiety in your office with a few simple tips.

Walking into the office on a Monday morning doesn’t typically evoke feelings of relaxation. The projects and deadlines for the week loom ahead, and more often than not, stress can be in the air even before the first pot of coffee is done brewing.

Even though work can be stressful, your office needn’t be! Creating a calm environment in your immediate workspace will make your whole life healthier as well as increasing productivity among employees.

Set aside a happy place
Designate a room just for relaxation for your employees. Deck it out in comfy furniture, muted colors, muted lighting, and Yoga mats. Having a space like this for employees is a small addition, but with huge benefits.

Let the light in
Allow natural light to fill your office space for instant cheerfulness. Also, encourage your team to take a few minutes to go outside and decompress.

Live a little
Treat your employees once in a while! Set monthly goals for the team so that you can celebrate with catered lunch when they hit their target. Even simpler is to treat them on an occasional day to donuts or coffee!

Bring in the friends
Allow your employees to bring their dogs to work one day a week. ‘Woof Wednesdays’ is a global movement where dogs are allowed in the office, proving that employers are a lot more relaxed when their pooch is wagging that tail with pure joy!

Get to the root
Instead of stocking fatty snacks and sugary beverages in the staff kitchen, provide your team with a fresh fruit bowl and bottles of water. Healthy and nutritious items will keep your employees running for longer, make them more productive and healthier!

Check out these affordable perks to keep your employees healthy and happy!
