How To Reduce Stress At Work

Ever wondered how to reduce stress at work? It is not easy! The very mention of work and deadlines is enough to send chills down your spine, and no matter the role you do, you can find yourself becoming stressed.

Work stress is very common and more people suffer from anxiety, even depression from work-related stress than you know. Whilst it is easier said than done to just forget about it all, sweep it under the rug as it were, that is simply not the right or healthy way to deal with stress, but finding a balance that works for you whilst at work and away from it to help you manage any fears and anxieties that you may have. 

When you are feeling all kinds of down and negative towards your work, let us be honest, that is not great, that leads to you taking your eye off the ball, which then can create further problems for you, be it in attendance or performance and no one wants that, the key is to be successful, perform your duties and show your bosses that you can excel at whatever may come your way, in a cool, calm and collected manner. 

We have decided to compile a list to help manage those work-related stresses and tensions, to help you become a better you and help you relax and reduce stress whilst at work.

Yes I know, this may sound like a big cliche, but it is true/. Step away from your desk, go to the bathroom if you have to but breathe, You can not focus on the matter at hand, without a clouded and frazzled mind. So what better way is to find a quiet place, close your eyes and simply breathe. You will find that this little practice even for 5 minutes will get you back on track.

Drink a cup of tea
Now, I am no tea lover I must confess, but a cup of herbal tea or a nice coffee always helps relax me, that warming sensation, with a biscuit or two, is great and is sure to cheer anyone up.

Nothing better than letting off a bit of steam than by a good old chat. Have a work colleague that you trust and connect with, share how you are feeling with them or a friend outside your work environment, better out than in I always say, and you will feel so much better, but letting it all out and confiding in someone. 

Eat right
We can all have a tendency to have a sweet tooth when stressed, but step away from the junk food guys, and eat yourself healthily which will lead you to feel a lot better.

Schedule your day
Get organised, an organised mind and work plan, leaves you feeling my relaxed and ready for what the working day may bring.
