What we covered

Are you feeling overwhelmed by work stress? You're not alone. Many individuals experience the negative impact of stress in the workplace, but there is hope. In the insightful Forest session titled "The Role of Physical Activity in Reducing Work Stress," Pertunia, an NLP Practitioner and entrepreneur, will explore how physical activity can alleviate work stress.

Understanding the Impact of Work Stress

Work stress can take a toll on your mental and physical well-being. It can lead to burnout, anxiety, and various health issues if left unaddressed. Moreover, prolonged periods of high stress levels can negatively impact your productivity and overall job satisfaction. It's crucial to recognize the signs of work stress and take proactive steps to mitigate its effects.

The Power of Physical Activity

Engaging in regular physical activity has been proven to have a positive impact on mental health. Exercise releases endorphins, which are natural mood lifters, and can help counteract the negative effects of stress. Physical activity also promotes better sleep, increased energy levels, and enhanced cognitive function, all of which are essential for managing work-related stress.

Strategies for Incorporating Exercise Into Your Daily Routine

Pertunia will share practical strategies for incorporating exercise into your daily routine, even with a busy work schedule. This may include simple activities such as walking during lunch breaks, utilizing standing desks, or practicing desk stretches. By making small but consistent changes, you can boost your physical activity levels and experience the mental health benefits.

Achieving a Healthier Work-Life Balance

Maintaining a healthy work-life balance is essential for overall well-being. Through physical activity, you can create a positive outlet for stress and improve your resilience in the face of work challenges. By participating in the Forest session, you'll gain insights into achieving a healthier work-life balance through targeted physical activity.

How October Can Support Your Well-Being

If you're looking for additional support in managing work stress and prioritizing mental health in the workplace, October provides digital group sessions, assessments, and valuable content about mental health. These resources can complement the insights shared in the Forest session and further empower you to take control of your well-being.


The link between physical activity and stress reduction is undeniable. By embracing the benefits of regular exercise, you can mitigate the impact of work-related stress and cultivate a healthier mindset. Through the guidance offered in the Forest session, you can equip yourself with the tools to incorporate physical activity into your daily life and experience the transformative effects on your mental well-being.

Remember to prioritize self-care and seek support when needed. Your mental health is a priority, and by taking proactive steps, you can navigate work stress with resilience and strength.
