Taking breaks throughout your day, whether for a nap or a walk, could be the perfect reset to help you guard and manage your emotional state. A heated exchange with a coworker, an uncomfortable interaction with your supervisor, a sales call gone wrong. Plowing through the discomfort is one way to deal with it. But is it the best way? Health experts agree that repressing emotions is an unhealthy coping mechanism and can lead to physical ill-health. Is there a better way? Next time you feel stressed out, try acknowledging the feeling and then take a walk or a nap for a simple, efficient reset. The act of taking a break could be what you need to return with a new outlook on whatever was bothering you.
