While a lot of people have jobs that prevent them from taking an afternoon break, I often encourage people who can't find the time during the day, to spend 10 minutes in the morning relaxing (with a nice cup of tea) before the craziness of the day starts. I know that the morning can be a hectic time, but its so helpful to take a few minutes for yourself right when you wake up, after you hop out of the shower, or even if it means driving to the office 10 minutes early and sitting peacefully at your desk/in a quiet room before you start your work. Give it a try and I'm sure you will notice a difference in your stress levels throughout the entire day!
