How To Reduce Stress On The Job – The Easy Way

In today’s business world, more and more individuals find themselves in a work from home environment – where work time is eating away their family time. It seems the real price tag for this is stress. And many find themselves wondering if stress relief is just an illusion.

Our featured guest in this episode is Erik Luhrs, President of BOOM, Inc. Erik shares tips and insights for understanding and dealing with stress. A few tears may be worth a million dollars and stress can be eliminated through a few small steps towards balance.

Here some stress relieving tips from the show:


  • Move to another “state”. There are four different states to our existance. Spiritual, mental, emotional and physical. If you find yourself consumed by stress, literally move – become physical. Do not become paralyzed by stress. Once you become physical, your emotions and your mind will follow the actions.
  • Cry. Everyone does. It’s a built in pressure release valve. Release the negativity through tears.
  • Get in shape and stay there. The more out of shape you are, the more vulnerable to stress you become.
  • Get personal in business. Don’t disguise your true self for business. Reveal your sense of humor. Share your personal experiences. Your clients will feel a sense of connection to you. It’s hard to be nasty or say no when a personal connection is formed.
  • Start the day right. Visualize your day as you wish for it to unfold each morning when you rise. By connecting the mind, body and spirit every morning and achieving a state of calmness, you can easily bypass the stumbling blocks that cause stress throughout the day.
  • Embrace the Law of Attraction. The universal Law of Attraction exists, just as the universal Law of Gravity exists. By focusing on what it is that you want, you expand your reality. Focused energy forces your wants to become your reality. See it, believe it – and then receive it.
