The average businessman or a working individual is assigned with six to seven projects in a day. As a professional, the demand to work and produce results is constantly increasing now and organizations literally sometimes suck the blood out of its people. More so if you are a part of a junior or a recently hired team of associates, the work that you have to do is just never-ending. Modern day workers are found to be interrupted seven to ten times in a day and they lose about one to two complete hours of their work due to constant distraction and noise at the work place. More than 10% of the employees at global organizations do not even have a certainty about their future.
All these combined together become the elements of stress. The life of a professional individual is not easy as they say and they say it right. It literally drains all the energy out of you and the quest to find success is often never-ending with no hope in sight. However, there are individuals who carry themselves in a way that none of these challenges can stop their ambitions to have a story telling future and a career full of promises and potential. This is the major difference between people who let stress rule their life and people who challenge the stress, overcome it and move on. Nothing will work when you are stressed out and so will your performance at work. Today’s blog is going to talk about four interesting and easy ways to manage stress right here and then at work.
Acting rather than reacting
A part of the research held in the U.S. shows that we as professional individuals react more than actually doing something in a bad situation. Our emotions take over and we slip into the world of denial, talks and other things which are counterproductive or not complete solutions to our situation. Acting is the way to go. A psychologist Melnick said, in any given situation more than 50% of the circumstances are under your control like your emotions, your belief, your logic and your actions, the other 50% are beyond your control. Try to work and control the circumstances that you can.
Taking a deep breath
You must understand that letting emotions take control over you and getting the better of you is not going to help, it will only deter your performance. So whenever you have a lot on your plate and it becomes difficult to digest, then take a deep breath. Go out for a walk or a cup of coffee and start to schedule as to how exactly you are going to approach a certain situation or work.
Sometimes nothing else, but useless distractions and negative vibes from the place or the people can create stress at work. If that is the case, then start avoiding such people or places and keep yourself aloof from stressful situations.
Learn from experience
When you are stressed out, use your past experience to have a feel good factor. See how you overcame the same situation in the past and start to work on the similar trends in order to counter stress.
