Do you stress too often at work? You have periods when nothing works out, there are many tasks ahead, and deadlines are close.
If you know this, then you need to listen to yourself, change your lifestyle a bit, and make friends offline.
Some useful tips:
1. Find the source of stress.
Separate emotions from reality and take a sober look at the situation. If you are unable to do this yourself, you can seek help from an HR, Team Lead, or psychologist. There are often situations where productivity decreases due to personal problems or health conditions, so you need to remember yourself.
2. Don’t sacrifice sleep.
Often we try to do more things at the expense of sleep time. This approach really only harms your productivity, creativity, and ability to solve problems and focus. The better you rest, the better you can perform your duties and cope with stress at work.
3. Ask for help if you can’t.
There is nothing wrong here, if the workload is objectively large, or the task turned out to be more difficult than you expected, why not try to solve this problem together with colleagues? Most colleagues will be happy to help you in difficult times.
4. Set priorities and organize working hours.
Create a balanced schedule, plan regular breaks and set healthy personal boundaries.
Try to find a balance between work and family life, social activities, daily responsibilities, and time for yourself.
5. Create an atmosphere of calm and relaxation.
Change the situation if possible. Get down to business, and try to distract yourself from thoughts. Or just listen to your favorite soothing music to relieve inner tension.
