“Even people in the Blue Zones experience stress. Stress leads to chronic inflammation, associated with every major age-related disease. What the world’s longest-lived people have that we don’t are routines to shed that stress. Okinawans take a few moments each day to remember their ancestors, Adventists pray, Ikarians take a nap and Sardinians do happy hour.”
Organize your personal space at work.
- Place pictures of your family around your work space.
- Utilize your favorite colors, scents (careful with allergies), and textures to create a space of comfort.
- Organize your space at the end of each day to start with a clean slate at the beginning of the next day.
- Take a few minutes out of each work day to practice mindfulness strategies. Mindfulness can greatly reduce stress for both you and your students.
