Wear your Slippers to Work for 'Stress Down Day', February 1st

In the US we have Take Back your Time Day. The UK will have its first Stress Down Day tomorrow Thursday, February 1st.
If your office has a sense of humor and/or a creative bent try wearing slippers to work.

Obviously if you are working on a construction site, slippers are not advisable.
Other activities suggested are cutting down on e-mail and blackberry use, switching from coffee to fruit smoothies and creating a stress free zone.

Firefly Tonics even created a Chill Out Drink for the occasion.

Besides helping everyone reflect on the health hazards of 'bad' stress, the event will raise funds for British charity Samaritans.
