...what I love most about my job is making it happen!
Wow......I love that quote ! ....That's what I'm talking about it !
|Don't overwhelm yourself|
by fretting about your entire workload. Handle each task as it comes, or selectively deal with matters in some priority
|Learn how to best relax yourself Meditation and breathing exercises have been proven to be very effective in controlling stress. Practice clearing your mind of disturbing thoughts.|
| Change the way you see your situation; seek alternative viewpoints|
Stress is a reaction to events and problems, and you can lock yourself in to one way of viewing your situation. Seek an outside perspective of the situation, compare it with yours. and perhaps lessen your reaction to these conditions.
| || Do something for others|
to help get your mind off your self
| Work off stress|
with physical activity, whether it's jogging, tennis, gardening
| || Begin to manage the effects of stress|
This is a long range strategy of adapting to your situation, and the effects of stress in your life. Try to isolate and work with one "effect" at a time. Don't overwhelm yourself. for example, if you are not sleeping well, seek help on this one problem.
See if there really is something you can change or control in the situation
| Remove yourself from the stressful situation Give yourself a break if only for a few moments daily|
| Don't sweat the small stuff|
Try to prioritize a few truly important things and let the rest slide
| Selectively change the way you react,|
but not too much at one time. Focus on one troublesome thing and manage your reactions to it/him/her
| Avoid extreme reactions;|
Why hate when a little dislike will do? Why generate anxiety when you can be nervous? Why rage when anger will do the job? Why be depressed when you can just be sad?
| Get enough sleep|
Lack of rest just aggravates stress
| Avoid self-medication or escape|
Alcohol and drugs can mask stress. They don't help deal with the problems
