What if we told you that you could enlist the aid of a rolling pin to stop stress on the job? No, that doesn't mean you get permission to hit your boss or co-workers over the head with it! Instead, keep a rolling pin in your desk drawer so that, when tension hits, you can slip off your shoes and roll your feet over the pin for five minutes. This reflexology trick triggers the release of endorphins, happiness-inducing brain chemicals that erase anxiety. In addition, your reflexology rolling pin will also increase the activity of alpha brainwaves, which are known for promoting a calm state. What a relief—now you can assure grandma that yes, you are using her thoughtful birthday gift...even if it's not for baking apple pies!
