7 Tips on Stress Management

It is March already… I don’t know about you, but for me, this year is moving so fast. My stress levels rise each time I think about how much more needs to be done in order to reach my goals and dreams. Does that sound familiar to you?

 
If you are in business, you probably know what I’m talking about. And you probably know by now, that stress is not helping you in performing at your best. It’s not good for your business life, personal life and definitely not for you health.

The question you need to ask yourself is ‘How do I reduce my stress in tensed periods?’

 
When unavoidable circumstances and demands pile on you, don’t get exhausted! Follow these great stress-reducing tips to regain your control and get on with your day:

 
#1
Recognize the root or true source of your stress

Strip away the obvious and look deeper to try and discover the driving force behind your sense of anxiety and nervousness. Focusing on what the real problems are, will lead you to a solution. One of the best stress reducing tips is to figure out what is bothering you and face it head on. Procrastination will just make things worse, and increase your anxiety.

 
#2
Recognize what you can handle and don’t go beyond that

Practice saying ‘NO’ to whatever is beyond your threshold or capabilities. Don’t worry about disappointing or displeasing people. When you are overloaded you will not perform well and eventually disappoint someone. Better to politely decline before getting to that point.

 
#3
Learn how to manage your schedule

Use a day-timer, keep your goals realistic, and delegate where necessary. Some of the best stress reducing tips are also great time management tips! Once you write things down, you won’t have to keep going over them in your head, or be afraid of forgetting them.

 
#4
Communicate well

Stress grows when it is held inside or dealt with quietly. Talking about your opinions, feelings and viewpoints will allow you a sense of control in stressful situations. You don’t have to discuss your problems with someone in your business. A mentor or trusted advisor can listen, offer stress-reducing tips and help you come up with some commonsense solutions.

 
#5
Think long term

One stress reducing strategy is to ask yourself if the issue will matter tomorrow, next week, or next year. Broadening your perspective may allow you to let things go that have no lasting effect in the future. Remember, don’t sweat the small stuff!

 
#6
Be healthy at work and outside of work

Eat well, exercise and have fun. Dealing with stressful situations will be easier with a healthy body and mind.

 
#7
Get away from work occasionally

Everything looks larger when you are up close, so back away and get the true picture. Even if the show won’t run without you, allow yourself set times to put work aside. Your productivity will be better when you return relaxed.

 
Business will always have it’s stress moments. The trick is to find a way to face the stress and keep on going. Use these stress reducing tips to tackle problems head on and handle all facets of your business well.
