Are you feeling too much stressed while at work? Ok, don’t tell me no! Because being a woman, I understand how difficult it seems at times, to make a perfect balance between work and personal life. Many do suggest to practice yoga, meditation, healthy diet etc.... and that’s quite good! But does that sound easy to grasp at once? Honestly speaking I try, but sometimes it’s hard to maintain in a busy schedule.
These are some quick tips to help you minimize stress at work life.
Tip 1 - Say goodbye to clutter. Working in an organized and clean environment is much more comfortable and easier than a chaotic one. Start by de-cluttering your work space. Organize your files, trash unnecessary old files, notes, and say hello to a neater (and hopefully less stressful!) work zone.
Tip 2 - Take time to breathe. Slow and deep breathing is really relaxing! One tried-and-true solution is to take a few moments to focus on your breathing. Slowly breathe in through your nose, letting your abdomen expand, then slowly breathe out through your mouth. Do this for a few minutes.
Tip 3 – Plan your day before you act. Well-planned time management is key to de-stress yourself. Sometimes, irritation increases just because of mess of silly things. But make sure it's a reasonable one… Managing expectations of yourself and tackling things you can actually accomplish should help cut down on workplace stress…and amplify workplace pride.
Tip 4 - Choose a career you love to work. Yes, it’s easy to suggest but hard to achieve. But we spend the majority of our daily life at workplace. So it’s important to love the work we do! When you are in the right profession, you wake up anxious to go to work, you want to do your best daily, and you know your work is the passion!
Tip 5 – Don’t bring home the work. Thinking about work during your off-hours will just mar your personal life. It’ll do nothing to alleviate your stress. So turn off the Blackberry. Don't check work e-mail. And please! Don’t spend hours discussing how much you hate your boss.
Tip 6 - Revive your personal life. Can't remember the last time you had a girl's night out or tucked your children into bed? If you're spending most nights on-the-job, odds are that your personal relationships are suffering. Having non-work plans to look forward to can help to make your unbearable job a little more bearable.
Tip 7–Be positive. Stay happy and in good relation with your fellow beings (both personal & professional), have fun and enjoy life to the fullest!
