Stress Relief-1

Stress Awareness Month is recognized in April, however, it is important to build in workplace activities and morale boosters for your employees throughout the year. Promotional products are a great vehicle for showing your staff that you care about their happiness and well-being. Here are six easy and affordable ways to promote mental and physical wellness at work and reduce stress among your employees.



1. Encourage breaks

Encourage your employees to take a short stretch break once every hour and build in several longer breaks throughout the day, when employees can have a meal, snack or a cup of tea or coffee. Mental and physical breaks are important and can increase productivity. Giving each employee a custom ceramic mug filled with mints or other sweet treats is another way to show you care about each and every one of them.




2. Aromatherapy

Aromatic essences can have a relaxing effect and can even improve one’s mood. Aromatherapy products can be used anywhere- at home, in your car and even at the office. An Aromatherapy Bear is a perfect choice for those in particularly stressful jobs such as nurses, social workers, and other direct service professions. The bear comes in soothing scents such as lavender, vanilla, and jasmine, and its t-shirt can be imprinted with your logo. Scented candles also make a thoughtful gift for employees and can be used at home to unwind after a long day.



Stress Guy3. Build-in Some Fun

Games and other fun activities are a great way to brighten the mood at the office and build morale. Give out fun gadgets such as fidget spinners and stress balls and build in occasional team-building games and prize giveaways. Hold a monthly raffle and choose one winner to win a gift certificate to a spa, the movies or a dinner out. On special occasions here at the Crestline office, one employee name is selected to spin the prize wheel and to receive a surprise gift.



Earbuds4. Music

Music is a great way to stay calm at work, even when things get crazy busy. Earbuds are a great employee giveaway and something anyone can use. Whether it is a colorful pair, a silly pair or a tech kit, we have something for everyone.
