Spend 5-10 minutes every evening to tidy up your desk for the next morning. • Clutter limits your brain to process information, reducing concentration and increasing stress. -Why is decluttering hard? Our brain responds with pain when letting go of items (the anterior cingulate cortex and insula) Tip #3: Add a Personal Touch Personalize Your Desk Decorate with 3-4 personal items with significant value to you Utilize a diffuser with your favorite essential oil Aromatherapy is known to relieve stress and allergies while improving breathing habits and mood.

While high cortisol levels are linked to stress, low cortisol levels can be detrimental as well. Cortisol is released by the adrenal glands and assists in prioritizing important body functions under stressful circumstances. Studies show that our cortisol levels decrease under artificial lighting, which can inhibit the body's natural stress management mechanisms and deplete energy levels.
