Crystals and work stress: Alternative accessories that enhance your mood and beat stress
The workplace can be a cause of stress for many reasons, from impossible deadlines to difficult clients or workplace politics. Stress is one of the largest causes of absenteeism in the professional world.
Chronic stress interferes in maintaining balanced health and emotional and psychological wellness. Given these adverse effects of stress, it makes sense to reduce stress in your work environment in every possible way. Crystals and alternative accessories using their healing and calming effects provide one option.
The Earth’s beautiful precious and semi-precious gems exist in a dazzling array of colours. We know from colour therapy that different hues can affect our moods and emotions significantly. Think, for example, of how many fast food chains and restaurants have bold, red décor. The reason for this is that red is a stimulant – it not only rouses the appetite, but also compels people to eat more quickly, thus helping fast food outlets accelerate their business. The same principles apply to the colours of crystals. Here are 5 colourful crystals that ease stress:

Keep a crystal on a pendant or an accessory incorporating quartz on your desk to keep focused and calm throughout the day.
