Work, work and more work!! Problems, problems and more problems!! Have you ever thought about saying the heck with it? Life is filled with many obstacles and uncertainties that can eventually cause you to lose control. With the hustle and bustle of life, work and family, anyone can be a victim and become overwhelmed in the process. It comes by way of a four letter word called STRESS. It is like an evil head that shows its face when you least expect it. Some never acknowledge that it is taking place because we have become accustomed to its routine. You go about your daily life as if nothing is wrong and suddenly, a jerk, a twitch, a deep sweat and a pounding of the heart rushes over you. It was enough for you to take notice. You sit down and begin to grasp at what just took place. You think about what you were doing at that present moment that brought you to this occurrence. It’s enough to stop you in your tracks and make you think!! Stress has taken many people from this earth for one reason or another. Learn your body, know when to say NO and be prepared to accept the consequences if you are disobedient. There are many ways to be stress free. I have listed eight that can help you get started right away. It’s never too late to put yourself first. In fact, it may be the only way for you to survive.
1. Express your feelings and share with passion. Putting stress into words through interaction with colleagues can bring about the seclusion often felt during the later period of burnout. The trade of ideas acts as a shock reducer because sharing and communicating has an exceptional way of relieving anxiety and putting things in perspective.
2. Plan time for YOU throughout the day. Each one needs breaks away from work. As a substitute of using lunch or coffee breaks to catch up on ongoing or extra work, try using down time doing something completely distinct to work. Time off is utterly essential in invigorating attitudes and job
3. Distinguish when you are experiencing energy patterns and plan work accordingly. During a regular work day, we all have high and low levels of liveliness. Finding out when high energy levels take place and then scheduling stressful functions only during those times may dispel wear out and energy loss.
4. Never schedule more than one mind boggling pursuit at the same time. This may take some thought and preparation beforehand, but putting up with only one demanding situation at any given time will avert work pileup, make you believe like you're accomplishing more and mitigate the stress of feeling overworked.
5. Engage in external physical activities to take your mind off of the present. It's imperative to partake in physical exercise. Inspiring the body refreshes the mind. Our brain requires activity by the rest of our body in order to regenerate the senses and enhance performance. Exercise also builds physical resistance and makes us feel better about ourselves. When stagnation sets in, strength and energy are lowered and the ordinary tendency is to become more vulnerable to physical and emotional distress.
6. Break projects down into smaller parts. Some of us have a tendency to become besieged by a project soon after we start it. By cutting a large project down to its particular components, it never looks as arduous or overwhelming. We can then embark upon it piece by piece and never even realize how immense it is until it's finally done.
7. Delegate accountability to others on your team. If we're ever in a position to delegate power to others, you should make it a point to do so. This is good leadership! Rather than seize on every problem that comes up, you should allow others to share in the problem solving and decision making with you.
8. Find out how to say no and stick to it! Don’t feel duty-bound to take on further assignments or do special projects which aren't mandatory. Even though it may cause feelings of anger and hostility, people will actually get over it. Saying yes all the time makes us feel powerless, while being able to say no gives us a feeling of influence and satisfaction. This isn't the same as not wanting to get involved and steadfast. Giving ourselves the choice of what we want to be concerned with or committed to is the kind of control we need to have to become anxiety free and productive at what we do.
I hope this message provides you with a happy medium of peace and tranquility. Know that some things are going to be out of your control. Focus on what you can control and leave the rest to those who give a darn! Find purpose in what you do and be the best at it. Never compromise your well-being for something or someone that could possibly care little about you.
