How Living in Wendell Falls Can Reduce Work-Related Stress

According to TinyRituals, North Carolina recently ranked 5th among the 10 most “stressed about work” states in the U.S. If you are finding yourself stressed about work, keep reading for our tips to reduce work-related stress.

Find a dedicated space to work from home

When working from home, one of the most important things to help prevent work-related stress from impacting your personal time is to set up a dedicated workspace so you are not working in the same space in which you relax. An easy way to create a dedicated workspace is to add a desk to a nook in your home or turn a spare room into an office.

Get a change of scenery

If you are overwhelmed by your workload and making little progress while working in your typical space, try changing things up! If you need a new workspace, try:

Working from home at Sunset Park

Did you know that Sunset Park has the perfect outdoor workstation, equipped with electrical outlets, a covered workspace and stunning sunset views?

Working at one of our cafés

Working at a coffee shop gives you a new, fun space to complete your work, and it may also increase your productivity levels. According to the Hawthorne effect, increased observation equals increased productivity, which means you may perform better when around others.

When you’re tired of working from home, head to Farmhouse Café, the Starbucks in Treelight Square or Sonder Café (opening soon) for a cup of coffee and a place to focus.

Take breaks

Taking breaks reduces stress, and it also increases productivity. If you are working from home, don’t forget to take a few minutes to yourself to go on an afternoon walk, grab a quick bite from Farmhouse Café or relax on your porch.
