It's one thing if you enjoy your work. It's a bonus if your work happens to be your passion. Yet, it's another thing if you loathe your work and most of the things about it. This can often lead to stress and a decreased quality of life. Here’s a list of 5 simple things you can do to manage your stress levels at work.
It's nice to work comfortably, and if it were possible, surely you would choose to work in the comfort of your own home or anywhere familiar to your liking. Bring some of your favorite items to work and display them on your desk. A photo of your family, perhaps? Or photos of your paw-friend at home to keep you motivated. Decorate your desk with miniature plants and trinkets for you to fiddle with when your day gets dull. In fact, book your session now with SweetEscape for some great photos to place on your office desk to remind you of greater days.
Caffeine is perhaps your best friend when it comes to staying up and awake through the long boring hours of work. Little did you know, caffeine is actually a depressant which surely isn't what you would need to make it through your days. Sure, it gives you that boost - temporarily only. Hydrate yourself with plenty of water - not only will it give you the same effect, but it's also a lot healthier.
Perhaps you've got a lot on your shoulder right now, whether it be professional or personal issues. Put yourself in others' shoes, could it be that they've got plentiful on their plates too? It's very likely, making the chances of you clashing with others easily. Keep in mind that people have their own baggage. Mind your distance, and try to maintain your composure.
What made you lose your cool today? What about yesterday and the day before? If you can't remember, then it's time to start keeping track of your mood. Once you know your stressors and triggers, find methods of dealing with them and coming up with responses; act instead of react. You'll master your emotions in no time.
You know what they say, "you are what you eat" just couldn't be more accurate. If you eat veggies, then you're most likely vegan or some sort. If you're a junk food eater, then you're probably not concerned about your health. If you eat a balanced meal, however, then you're applying the ideal type of diet. Your diet is just as important as anything else. Eat less processed foods and switch to home cooked meals or perhaps a healthier alternative.
