Sweden: Taking a Sweet Pause Every Day
Your “coffee break” may consist of an out-and-back sprint to grab a latte to-go, but in Sweden, the institution of the coffee break (usually around 10 a.m. and another at 3 p.m.) is a sit-down mini-meal that dates back to the 1700s. It’s called fika, and it involves leaving the workplace with a friend to have a cup of coffee and, usually, a sweet treat. Schedule an afternoon fika into your busy day, and invite friends to join you (you can’t fika solo).
As you can see stress management has many shapes and sizes in different cultures. Hopefully this helps you to try something different next time you feel the need to manage your stress.
