Nothing can ruin your day like stress. You start the day with all the energy and your morning is looking very good productive. But as the hours go by, stress creeps into your routine and affects not only the quality of your work, but also your emotional well-being.
Stress affects your decisions, your determination, your mental clarity, and your physical and emotional health. To the extent that you can get it out of both your work and personal life, it will be you more efficient and productive.
The next time that unexpected guest shows up at your office door, try these methods to minimize it:
1. View stress as a challenge
How we see a problem is often a problem in itself. Experience, education, values, and culture are lumped into one big pot called “you,” and they shape your view of reality. One person’s trash is another person’s trophy. So, if you want to see a value where others only see waste, ask yourself: “How can I turn this challenge into an opportunity?”
2. Focus on the process, not the outcome
In the book Working Under Pressure: The Science of Doing Your Best When It Matters, the author cites a study that asked two groups of mechanics to put an engine together. The first group had the opportunity to show that they could build it in a given time. To increase the pressure, he was instructed to put it together correctly and in the allotted time would get a raise.
The second group did the same job and received the same promise of professional improvement. However, he was told that if he made mistakes, he would have a better chance of making amends.
Who do you think built the fastest engine? That’s right: the second group because they focused on the process, not the outcome.
3. Have a plan, but be prepared to adapt
Louis Pasteur once said that luck favors prepared heads. To the extent that you can minimize the level of uncertainty associated with the unexpected, you will feel more confident and less stressed. Always have an emergency plan for everything you do.
There is a saying, “Two are one and one is neither.” What does that mean? Its meaning goes well beyond this article, but in general, Everything we do works best in pairs. Two heads work better than one, and four eyes see better than two. The same applies to plans, ideas and actions. Emergency plans allow changes to be made faster than the “start-finish-start over” cycle.
4. Add a little activity to your life
It’s something about being in an open space that allows you to clear your mind and feel more ready to do projects. Above all else, exercise is a great stress reliever … and it’s completely free!
Physical activity is better than any drug or supplement on the market. It has beneficial effects on the brain, heart rate, immune system and of course stress. Can’t you come out of the office? Take 10 minutes to go outside and go
If you feel anchored to your computer or think it’s impossible to be away from your desk for 10 minutes because you’re missing out on so many things, I have news for you: absolutely nothing is going to happen.
Stress can be treated in the same way as adversity. It just takes a little focus and effort.
