How to Get Your Mind Off Work

How to Get Your Mind Off Work

Whether it’s due to work, school, or parenthood, when the stresses of the week become too much to handle, people need a place to relax and work off the tension. Instead of turning to an unhealthy coping method for that stress, there’s a way for you to completely escape the anxiety you’re facing. An escape room is a healthy, useful, and fully immersive way to get your mind off work and come away refreshed and rejuvenated.

Get Healthy

Stress is the source of so many harmful conditions in your body, so the best way to keep yourself healthy is to get your mind off whatever is causing you tension. An escape room is a unique tool to relax in a physically and mentally beneficial way during times of immense psychological pressure. Some may favor an escape room over stress-eating or -drinking because those options negatively affect your body. Others simply appreciate the opportunity to not sit and stew. Or, if you’re the kind of person who works out to relieve stress, you might want a break from intense gym sessions to work out your mind instead.

Improve Your Mind

What better way to distract yourself from the pressure of the work week than by challenging your brain? When you put your mental assets to work, you’ll be able to come back to your job with renewed thinking and fresh perspective because you’ve had practice in intellectual agility and skill. In an escape room, you’ll be putting the basic foundations of your cognitive ability to the test with puzzles that emphasize critical thinking, communication, and problem-solving. The challenge of working with others in order to achieve success and efficiency will allow you to re-enter work, school, or parenthood with an invigorated mind and increased effectiveness and productivity.

Let Your Work Go

The ultimate form of distraction is escapism, and an escape room can grant you exactly that for a short period of time. Each room you encounter has a unique story designed to be fully immersive, so it’s like discovering a new world. You can become a part of an alternate reality or become a different person altogether at the snap of a finger, and there’s no shortage of facilities and themes for you to explore. When you’re inside an escape room, there’s no time to think about anything else. The stresses of the day melt away anytime you enter and have the space to relax, have fun, and learn something new.

Escape rooms are a perfect solution for combating workplace stress. If your whole office is under pressure, an escape room can be an excellent tool to help the entire team get away for a while. The whole office will come away with a refreshed perspective because of the experience.

Get your mind off work at EscapeWorks Denver and make sure to book your room when you’re ready to try one!

The Reviews

  • review rating 5  Had a great work team retreat activity here. Loved the puzzles and escaping the "flower shop" (aka: 1920s speakeasy). I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a team building exercise or just wanting to have fun.

    review rating 5  Went here as a small group recently and had a great time. Instructions from the staff were pretty clear at the beginning and helpful in their instructions in explaining how to try to solve the room. Trace was a great guide for this experience and would happily go again.

    review rating 5  My fiancee and I were vacationing in Denver and tried out the Egyptian Tomb with another group of 4. We escaped with 5 minutes to spare! Very good room layout and good props. Puzzles were challenging and rewarding once solved. I was not a huge fan of how they did the hints... usually you have 3 hints or whatever and you ask for a hint when you get stuck, instead they give you hints when they think you need it. Otherwise, our game master, Trace, was very helpful and personable. Overall, very satisfied with our experience!

    review rating 5  We did the "Outbreak" room at EscapeWorks in Denver and we LOVED it! This was my first time in an escape room and I will definitely be back. Alisha was our liason and she was SUPER helpful. What a fun night with my kids!

  • review rating 5  Their flower shop was quite enjoyable, and Dana delivered with a lovely performance. Give her a raise 😁I've only done one room, but it was a great time. It was a bit challenging, yet did not feel too difficult for all levels of problem solving.

    thumb Caleb B

    review rating 5  Came here for my birthday and it was a blast! Super nice people. We did the Casino Heist and it was definitely challenging but they did give us clues along the way. Can’t wait to go back!

    thumb Samantha Kendrick
  • review rating 5  Did the "Beyond the Flower Shop" room with a group of six. The room was well thought out and very enjoyable. Challenging, but perfect for a group of beginners. Alisha working the front desk was amazing at introducing us to the storyline and walking us through how to do the game. She provided help at perfect times and we wouldn't have made it through without her. Will definitely be coming back with my group because of her!

    thumb Chandler Tuck

    review rating 5  We completed a team event here where we split into teams and competed to finish first. Both rooms had amazing puzzles and it was really fun. I think our company team thoroughly enjoyed both rooms. We completed The Egyptian Tomb and the Casino but one of our members in the casino team can't seem to stop mumbling numbers and math equations.
