Relieve Stress At Work
Everyone experiences periods of stress at home or work, which can lead to high blood pressure, headaches, muscle tension, lack of sleep and feelings of irritability and anxiety.
To reduce stress try making a list of all the things you have to do. Often just the process of writing down these tasks can help relieve worry. When making the list try to identify the next step to take for each item to give yourself a clear plan of action.
Tackle each issue on your list one at a time will help you avoid feeling overwhelmed, but try cutting it down. Identify the items that need to be done and those that can be put off until later or dropped entirely.
One of the most important lessons in managing stress is learning to say no. If you simply cannot handle another task, say so. Your boss and coworkers know that you are a hard worker and will appreciate the honesty. Taking on more than you can handle will make the quality of all your work suffer.
Keep yourself from wondering off task by avoiding distractors. Close down any email or any message systems that might pop up while you are working. If you work from home, turn off the TV and radio and if necessary unplug your phone to keep your attention on the task at hand.
Exercise is a great stress reliever. Scheduling a short workout during the day can leave you feeling refreshed and energized. The exercise doesn't have to be strenuous,a 20 minute walk outside will help relieve stress. Regular exercise improves circulation and can lower cholesterol.
