How to Deconnect and reconnect with yourself

Desktop destress is a relaxation technique that offers the perfect way to spend a few restful minutes at your desk. Experts find it usually takes the mind 5 to 10 minutes to unwind, depending on your stress level combined with your ability to let go. What’s interesting is the paradox technology plays in the relaxation game: The very connectedness that caused your stress may also be used to deconnect from the world, and reconnect with yourself.

Feel free to breathe deeply, exhale slowly, visualize yourself surrounded by positive energy – and forget about everything else, even if it’s only for a few minutes. Sometimes, that’s all you need.
