How Stress at Work Affects you

If you love your job and the people you work with then you are in the minority.

For most people, even if they do not hate their job, they will have to deal with stress in myriad of ways.

The problem is not confined to work, you will bring that stress home and to others areas of your life.

It’s not natural to work this much and only have two days to rejuvenate. Even a two week break only does so much. A couple of days back and everything is the same.

It’s not just your boss that causes stress but also your colleagues. We are human, we don’t get on with everyone. Some people are going to rub us the wrong way and we don’t know why. Others will be annoying and rude and some just enjoy creating turmoil.

Then there is the work itself. How many of us do work that has meaning to us and inspires us? Very few.

How we react to stress from work…

The monotony of the work, the long daily commute and the people all combine to stress us physically, emotionally and mentally. And often overlooked, we also suffer spiritually by not having meaningful work to do and not seeing the end result of our labour. All very unnatural.

We will feel depressed, anxious, have physical symptoms like headaches and general lack of vitality.

You will find yourself snapping at people you love and even hobbies you enjoy become tedious because you know the grind starts again after the weekend.

I’m not painting a pretty picture. But I think it is an accurate one for most.

The problem is we get used to it and and convince ourselves this is the only way, so the stress lingers and becomes chronic.

This is why you need to do everything you can to reduce, if not, eradicate the stress completely or at least manage it.

There are many things you can do, one of them is to use the power of crystals.

Crystals can not only reduce stress and encourage calm but they also offer protection against negative energy.

How to Cleanse and Recharge Your Crystals for Stress at Work

Crystals will hold onto energy, so you will need to recharge and cleanse your crystals regularly.

There are many simple and easy ways you can recharge them…


Many crystals can be recharged by placing them in direct sunlight for a few hours, preferably during the early morning or late afternoon when the sun’s energy is not too harsh.

However, be cautious with this method, as some crystals may fade or become damaged in direct sunlight.

Avoid this method for : Clear Quartz, Black Tourmaline, Rose Quartz, Amethyst, purple flourite


Charge your crystals under the light of the full moon. this is a gentle and effective method. You can place them outdoors or on a windowsill where they can absorb the moon’s energy throughout the night. This is a safe method for most crystals. It is especially powerful in the winter solstice.


Bury your crystals in the earth for a day or two to allow them to absorb the Earth’s natural energy and cleanse themselves. I like doing this, something very grounding and calming about digging up the earth and gently placing the crystals in it.


Selenite crystals are self-cleansing and can also recharge other crystals. Place your crystals on a piece of Selenite for a few hours or overnight to clear and recharge their energy.

Other Crystals

Some crystals, like Clear Quartz, can be used to recharge other crystals. Simply place the crystal you want to recharge on top of a larger Clear Quartz crystal or cluster for a few hours or overnight.


Use sound vibrations to cleanse and recharge your crystals. You can do this by placing your crystals near or on a singing bowl, gong, or using a sound meditation to clear and refresh their energy.

Visualization and Intention

This is another method I like, because the visualization make me calm. Hold your crystal in your hands and visualize a bright, pure light surrounding and penetrating it. Set the intention that the crystal is being cleansed and recharged. This method is especially effective for smaller, delicate or water-soluble crystals. (see more on water safe crystals)

Running Water

Rinse your crystals under cool, running water. Preferably natural sources like a river or stream. I have a small waterfall at my local park. I take my crystal with me and soak them for a few minutes.

Sea Salt

Place your crystals in a bowl of sea salt (not table salt!) or bury them in sea salt for several hours or overnight. Afterward, rinse them thoroughly under running water to remove any salt residue.

Avoid this method for: Sodalite:
