Keep a handwritten to-do list

It’s well known that writing with your hand can be very therapeutic if you’ve been typing for a long time. Also, keeping your list on a pad instead of the computer means that you can take it with you when you leave your desk and can keep you away from the distractions of the internet. The act of writing a list by hand also makes you more able to remember it.

Have an orange for a snack

Many people enjoy a snack at work, and it’s always best to choose something healthy and nutritious. The orange could be the perfect option as it is filled with vitamin C, and vitamin C is the perfect nutrient to help you bounce back from a stressful situation.
