Work, no matter how simple and mundane it is, can be stressful. No matter how routine it is, it can cause so much anxiety and pressure on an individual. There are researches proving that stress causes illnesses in a person. It is the number one cause of cancer. There are several companies doing their fair share of relieving pressure, tension and stress in their employees’ daily lives. Those companies’ human resources departments are researching ways on making their employees’ jobs more enjoyable, less stressful, more rewarding. This is one of the reasons why there is an events department solely dedicated to coming up with different fun activities for employees to participate in.
But not all companies are concerned with their employees’ well-being. Some are just concerned with the bottom line of the company. It is all work and no fun when inside the office. It is work, deliverables, completing a day’s task, regardless if the employee comes home dead tired.
If that is the case, a person must find his own way of chasing the blues away.
Several avenues are available to stop stress from wreaking havoc in a person’s life. Going on adventures. Karaoke after work. Backpacking. Going online.
Since majority of individuals are online nowadays, here are two ways to de-stress while online:
- Watch videos. There are so many sites offering free videos, even movies, to stream and watch online. Youtube is the most popular platform for online video streaming nowadays. The site offers full movie videos for a reasonable fee. Netflix is also a favorite among movie-holics. For a monthly fee, one can access hundreds of movies for one’s enjoyment.
Sit back and relax in front of the television. Choose among different genres of movies and television shows. There are also music videos, even karaoke via Youtube videos. There are so many ways one can enjoy a video. Imagine a gathering of family members or friends at home, in front of a 60 or 70-inch television screen, waiting for their turn to sing… perfect way to chase away the stress!
- Play online games. Most people go online when they go home after work. Instead of going out after work, sit in the comfort of one’s home and play.
Picture this in mind. Home from work, very tired and stressed out, feeling the burden of a hard day, needing a way to de-stress… boot the computer and play! There is no need to dress up again to go out. There is no need to drive through traffic and get stressed out again due to the people out in the streets. No need to go through a hard time finding a parking spot. Just park in front of the computer and play!
There are websites that can teach a person what to do online to be productive. But when coming home after a hard day’s work, to relax and de-stress are two things a person would want to do when booting up their computers.
