1. Like any community, you have occupants with different views, opinions, backgrounds, personalities, ethnicity, religions, values and passions. The office environment is no different. In order to have a healthy working environment, there needs to be training and effective communication for the employees on these issues and how it impact on others. This can be facilitated with retreats, assessments and activities.

  8. Have you heard about the Black Captain America? Well, social media is having a lot of fun with some scenarious involving the newly crowned captain. One would wonder will this Captain America have to deal with the typical "black man" sterotypes we see played out in the media everyday. For example, will he have to battle police brutality?  Check out some of the scenarious being tweeted.  Search #BlackCaptainAmerica . -ldw

    There are moments when you get stressed at work and you don't have time to run to a spa or even leave the office.  When it happens, you need a quick outlet.  The simplest thing to do is stop what you doing and take a moment to BREATHE!

    Next time you are in a stressful situation and need a quick fix, try out this breathing exercise:

    1. Get a sitting position and practice deep breathing. An easier method would be lying down. Not too may places in the workplace have areas where you can lay down, but if you have that option, TAKE IT! Either way, get in an area that's comfortable, convenient and practical.  If you are sitting, make sure your chair is comfortable.  
    2. While sitting, be sure to close your eyes and wiggle around for a little bit. Stretch your neck and shoulders.  Tilt your head, without forcing it, from side to side giving your muscles a chance to relax.
    3. Sit up straight in a balanced position. If you are in a chair with a back, scoot your hips against the backrest and lean back until you feel like you have support. No backrest? Not a problem! Continue sitting in a balanced position and lean the trunk of your body slightly forward.
    4. When you feel comfortable and balanced, facing to the front with eyes closed, relax your shoulders some more. They will feel longer and wider.
    5. While taking deep breaths, you should through your nose and let out a sigh.  While doing this, let your shoulders relax more, stay balanced and don't slump over.
    6. For one to two minutes, breathe slow and easy for at least 15 to 20 breaths. While breathing in, let your abdomen expand and don't puff up your chest while inhaling. Every time you exhale, relax more. Concentrate on your natural breathing. Don't force it.
    7. Once you have completed the breathing exercise, open your eyes and carry on to what you were doing before you started this exercise.
