Being an employee can be tiring and stressful. The amount of work that needs to be done can take a toll on your overall well-being. Of course, add the additional responsibilities you have as a son, daughter, mother, father, etc. to the mix and, well, you get the point.
Hence, stress management is a must! Staying on top of your game while juggling all your commitments means finding a way to relieve all that pent-up tension and anxiety. Otherwise, it can and will affect your life and relationships.
One such example is finding the time to relax and unwind during work hours. That’s why RENPHO partnered with the Spotsylvania County Sheriff’s Office earlier this June to provide Elis 1 Smart Body Scales and Eyeris 1 Eye Massagers as an addition to their stress reduction programs, which aim to help deputies maintain and improve their overall health and mental wellness.
Common Causes of Stress Among Workers
From excessive workload to interpersonal conflicts, here are some of the common culprits behind why workers experience stress:
Remember that for a company to have a healthy and productive work environment, employees and employers must first determine and address whatever stressors they have in the office.
The Invisible Burden of Stress: A Day in the Life of a Health & Safety Officer
Shannon Kreiter, Health and Safety Officer for the Spotsylvania Sheriff's Office, faces the challenge of caring for the safety and wellbeing of deputies who are continuously faced with stressful situations, possible physical harm, and witnessing the best, worst and saddest aspects that life offers. They are faced with making split second, potentially life-altering decisions daily and still must figure out how to be themselves at the end of the day.
“These stressors, many times, are bottled up and put away. Over time, understandably, the deputy becomes tired, leading to dramatic impact on their health,” says Kreiter. To complicate matters further, she tells us that the life expectancy of law enforcement is statistically shorter than the general population. “There’s a higher probability of developing high blood pressure, coronary artery disease, diabetes, depression, injury or other illness because of the job,” Kreiter explains.
How Do Eye Massagers Help Relieve Stress?
Eye massage devices are not just any ordinary tool. They are equipped with features that aim to provide you with a relaxing and calming massage experience. Given the possible tiring workload you must shoulder every day, having such a device by your side can do wonders for your overall mood and productivity.
Since they are made with relaxation in mind, these tools may come with multiple massage modes for customization, built-in heating pads or thermal massagers for added comfort, portable design, and more. The RENPHO Eyeris 1 Eye Massager comes with additional features such as Bluetooth connectivity, allowing you to play your own music, and an adjustable headband to fit most individuals.

What are the Benefits of Eye Massagers for Stress Management?
With such useful features and portable design, an eye massager can be a wonderful addition to your stress management routine. So, aside from adding other coping strategies to your lifestyle, frequently using it can bring you numerous benefits.
Promotes relaxation: As mentioned previously, it is designed to promote relaxation. It does this by gently massaging the muscle areas around your eyes, which relieves muscle tension and alleviates discomfort due to eye fatigue that comes from digital eye strain.
Improves sleep quality: As it eliminates discomfort and relaxes your body, an eye massage can help your body prepare itself for sleep, allowing you to rest and rejuvenate better. Follow this link to learn How to Use Eye Massager for Stress Relief and Better Sleep.
Reduces eye strain: Spending hours of screen time in front of a laptop, smartphone, tablet, and other digital devices can stress and dry your eyes. Using a RENPHO eye massager, however, can help alleviate these issues by increasing blood flow to your eyes, boosting tear production and relaxing key pressure points.

These benefits are essential as stress is undoubtedly a huge obstacle to your productivity at work. Kreiter incorporates the RENPHO Eyeris 1 Eye Massager into programs and policies at Spotsylvania Sheriff's Office with the aim to improve the overall health and wellness of deputies.
Kreiter shares, “our programs include physical and mental wellness. With the help of community partnering, such as RENPHO, we have been able to expose our deputies to holistic treatments such as the Eyeris 1, acupuncture, yoga, total wellness through chiropractic care, massage, vitamin therapy in office, nutritional consultation, Reflexive Performance Reset (RPR) and compression therapy.”
On a positive note, Kreiter tells us that the Eyeris 1 in particular has helped holistically improve staff morale. “Every deputy that has tried the device has remarked that they feel refreshed and more focused. This is a monumental achievement as focus and rest are so vital for the safety and well-being of our deputies.”
Common Coping Strategies for Stress
Everyone experiences stress. However, everyone has their own ways to cope with it. Here are some of the common practices people follow to deal with tension and anxiety due to stress:
Remember that it is possible that some of the coping strategies listed above may not be effective for you. Experiment with different methods and see what works best. Moreover, you can even combine them to effectively manage stress.
How to Incorporate Eye Massagers into Your Routine?
Incorporating an eye massage device into your stress management routine can be done with the following tips:
Make it a habit: Of course, the first step towards successfully incorporating the RENPHO Eyeris 1 Eye Massager into your daily life is by using it on a regular basis. Doing so allows you to be more familiar with it until it reaches the point where you’ll start looking forward to using it. Essentially, you want to keep everything, including time and place, consistent to quickly make it a necessary part of your morning or evening ritual.
Find a quiet and comfortable space: Having a cozy corner or spot at home or in your workplace allows you to enjoy your massage session without too many distractions or noise.
Combine it with other stress-management techniques: Aside from giving yourself regular eye massages, you can also consider combining it with other relaxation techniques including breathing exercises, meditation, listening to your favorite music, and more.
You can also check your workplace’s policies regarding stress management. Spotsylvania County Sheriff’s Office has programs, such as acupuncture, yoga, massage, and more, that takes a proactive approach to improve the overall physical and mental health of their deputies.
Remember that aside from these tips, never giving up is the key towards successfully adding a RENPHO eye massager to your stress management routine. Be disciplined and stick to your plan to gain the many benefits these tools can give you.
