Simple Ways To Combat Work Stress
Your body and mind are like a rubber band. There is only so much stress they can take before snapping. You leave office stressed about work, then work stressfully and then go home stressing over all the work that is still left.
These simple things can help improve your situation:
##1. Eat healthy
Fuel yourself before you get ready for the grind. A healthy and wholesome breakfast prepares you to combat work stress more effectively. Oats are known to have many known benefits, so much so that it’s even used to help nervous fatigue and depression in western herbal medicine.
This is probably the last thing you want to do when you are stressed out but there’s a reason people leave everything aside and take deep breaths when stressed. This is because during meditation your heart and breathing rate slows down, blood pressure stabilises, and the body uses oxygen more efficiently. So next time you feel like you’re going to explode, close your eyes and focus on anything but the sound of your boss! Fun fact, meditation can not only alleviate the effects of stress but can also reverse the effects of long-term stress?
##3. Be organised
Have stressed over a lost pen or a piece of paper in office? Too much work can lead to a disorganised desk, which increases stress and frustration. It has a negative effect on your mood and productivity as well. If this happens to you often, organising your desk better can do you good. Similarly, managing your time better and dividing the work equally through the day can save you a lot of last-minute deadline stress.
##4. Create a comfortable workspace
A stress factor that often escapes attention is physical discomfort. If your work chair and desk are uncomfortable, their long-term use may lead to discomfort such as a sore back and make you more reactive to stress. Even things such as too much noise can be a distraction and cause frustration. Wherever possible, make sure that your work environment is a quiet, comfortable and soothing space, allowing you to do your best.
##5. Focus only on what you can control
Do you ever get worried over things you can’t even control, like how is boss going to react to your work? Some things are beyond your control and focusing on them will only make you feel helpless and frustrated. Instead, why not focus on things you can control, like doing your best work before presenting it to the boss. Similarly, you can’t always do anything about falling sick but what you can do is lead a healthy life and prepare for everything.
Instead of worrying about the rising instances of lifestyle diseases, why not think ahead and prepare yourself for it with a comprehensive health insurance?
