Melnick, a well-known researcher, and psychologist had said
“We experience stress when we feel that situations are out of control.”
So, we have to learn to control our minds, thus, controlling the situation. We have come up with some great ways to handle your stress with a smile. Any problem may come, but you’ve to be the ‘Game’ for it. Buckle yourself up and join us in the journey to know how to handle your stress at work make your life better.
- Take a deep breath
You will always face ups and downs throughout your life. Think of a situation, you would have to attend a casual business meeting where you have to meet the deadlines of our project but unfortunately, you couldn’t make it happen! What’s the highest chance of occurrence? Certainly, you will get bombarded with a lot of words that you might never want to hear from the tacky boss of yours. So, just chill. You’re not an exception, it happens with me, you and everyone. Just leave the room with an apology and smile. Take a deep breath for around 5 minutes. It will help to restore you balance and it works like a 90-minute yoga class in just 5 minutes even at the washroom or your desk.
- Interrupt the interruptions
One of the deadly things is to meet up the deadlines of the projects. Let’s not even talk about the in-between emails, phone calls, pop-ins or the summons to the cabin of the manager without any prior reasons. While we can take the control over the interrupters, we can certainly control our reactions. There are three ways to react in such situations: accept the problem, cut it off or just diagnosis the problem’s priority and make a plan accordingly. Use to-do list and maintain them regularly to have a balanced life and to avoid procrastination.
- Health is always wealth
We often tend to ignore our health due to other priorities thinking them as mere ones to be handled. But, that’s where we do the mistake. Our body needs to pampered as well. It needs good food, sound sleep as well as positive vibes. I am sure we all have become nocturnal nowadays. But, we need to cut the crap and need to have the sleep of at least 7 hours every day.
- Avoid gossips
Again and again, we all fall into this trap created by others. This is the natural trend to be followed. If nothing is there to do, a cup of coffee with a few gossips makes a day well for everyone. By everyone, I don’t spare men even, they even do it so nicely! But, if you’re giving importance to it, and make your face dull thinking about the rumours about you, then, dear, it’s high time for you to grow up. The rumours will come and go but your work will speak for you. Focus on it and move on.
- Balance the lives
It’s one of the most important points to be discussed here. Have you ever seen a guy doing the office work in the home? You certainly have cited at least one for sure! If you get time, try to ask him about his personal life. Once he starts, I’m sure he will never stop! This is the point we have to understand. We have to learn how to keep our personal and professional lives away from each other. If we learned it, it’s just the pathway for the beautiful life ahead.
- Don’t lose your confidence
Yes, we tend to lose our confidence now and then. These are the times when our competitors take away the chances of doing well and getting spotted in front of the authority. We have a tendency to intimidate ourselves thinking us inferior to others that’s where we all fail. We have to grow up and get ourselves of the stereotypes about us.
- Be your own critic
Wait! Did it sound weird? If it is so, then you’ve missed the inner thought of the saying. Around millions of thoughts stream through our mind each day, and the internal negativity we possess is at times, to stress you out as an external affair. Instead of being harsh to yourself, try to find your faults and then try fixing them. You’re the one who can encourage yourself.
So, are you all geared up to start your day with a bang? Try our suggestions and let us know about your opinions in the comment section below. Till then, take care and be stress-free.
