- Try this tactic from Dr. Allen Bragdon, director of the Brainwaves Center in Massachusetts--Go for a drive at the end of a particularly stressful day. Research found that at the end of the day, the right side of a person's brain is so busy rehashing the events of the day that it shuts down the left side-- And that's the side that's responsible for talking and listening to your spouse. So go for a drive, somewhere scenic, and think about your day for 15 minutes. Then when you come back home, you'll be ready to bond with your family.
- Another de-stress tip: Bring a tennis ball to work. When you're reading documents, squeeze the ball in your right hand. This will stimulate the left side of your brain, again, the side that processes words. If you're looking at blueprints or instructions with diagrams, switch to your left hand. Stimulating the brain's right side helps with visualizing and spatial relationships.
- And here's another way to calm down - have kids: A study done by Rutgers University found that people with children are less anxious than those without. Why? They have decreased levels of stress inducing hormones.
