When you have too much on your plate, the deadlines are looming, and people are counting on you, you start to feel overwhelmed. It feels like you are being pulled from every direction. You feel like every ounce of energy has been drained off and it becomes frustrating to cope with all the stress. This happens to the extent that you feel your own performance suffers. This is life in today’s modern workplace. One thing that makes a difference between successful and unsuccessful people is not whether or not you suffer from stress; rather it depends on how you deal with it.
Following are the ways that can help you deal with stress on daily basis:
When you work out, your body releases a soothing neurotransmitter GABA that helps to reduce stress. Exercising on daily basis helps you to come up with new ideas and sparks your creativity.
Schedule your chores:
Chores seem like a never-ending task and if you don’t limit them, they have the tendency to monopolize your free time. Therefore, schedule your chores just like the other tasks you perform. Alloy a time limit to each one of the chores and when you feel like they are not getting completed, leave them to be done on the weekend. This is going to reduce the stress of your whole day being dragged down.
Disconnect from the digital world:
In today’s world, it is really difficult to separate yourself from work even after set timings because of the constant digital connection. This makes you available 24/7 which increases the stress levels. For this purpose, you need to set specific timings for checking your emails or responding to the voice mails. Do not respond through your digital devices whenever a mail is received until and unless something is really urgent.
Stay connected with your family:
In order to recharge and relax, you must spend some quality time with your friends and family. Go to the park, for hiking, or to meet people you haven’t met in a long time. You will be glad at the end of the day and will feel much lighter and recharged for the entire week ahead.
Pursue a passion:
When you have a passion in life, your life becomes interesting. Every day you look forward to doing something that can get you closer to your goals. You can easily escape stress if you engage with your efforts in a healthy manner. Work for achieving your goals by enjoying working for them.
