Work By AmAndA myers It! Four steps to having a healthier, less stressful workspace I f you’re reading this at your desk, take a moment and look around. I’ll wait. Do you see clutter and chaos? Are stress-inducing to-do lists tacked up all over, reminding you in no uncertain terms that you have many things to do … ASAP?! Are your desk drawers hiding an emergency chocolate stash? (Yeah, mine, too.) When you think about how the average American spends 8.6 hours a day at work, you have to wonder why many of us aren’t treating our desks more like the Zen zones that they should be. Instead, we’re sitting down each day at a spot not necessarily designed to keep our minds and bodies in a healthy state—the kind of state that allows us to be productive and calm. Perhaps, then, it’s time for an office makeover. By creating a space that promotes health and serenity, you may find it’s a little easier to face the daily grind. Spri ng 2013 25
