Tip of the Week: Walk Off Your Stress

When you're feeling overwhelmed by an upcoming deadline, a pile of bills, or too many emails, you can't run away from the problem—but taking a little break might just help.

Instead of sitting at your desk, getting more and more stressed by the minute, take a break and go for a walk. The endorphins released by physical activity will counteract those feelings of anxiety and release your worries. Plus, studies show that you're 60 percent more likely to come up with creative solutions while walking–so your problem may be solved by the time you get back to your desk!
