Stress at Work
Working in an office has various stressors. It’s important to be able to take a break from your work for one's mind, body and productivity. Our goal is to better understand how employees engage with their office environment in order to design a solution that allows them to find some a way to relax in their work environment .
Work can be a hectic flow of unending tasks, causing employees to skip needed breaks.
How might we normalize the act of taking a healthy break for office employees to encourage a state of mindfulness that resets their state of thinking?
