Empty Your Cup Relaxation Tip: 4 Stunningly simple Ways To Help Avoid Workplace Stress
Posted May 11 2010 11:05am
Over the past 14 years working with stressed out solopreneurs, I have always been shocked at how many of them believe that in order to relax they have to work harder.
Well let me tell you, nothing could be farther from the truth. It hurts my heart, but most people are headed for disaster and you know something? it is not necessary!
If you would like to avoid working hard and I know you do, here are 4 stunningly simple ways to avoid work place stress.
1. Roll with the punches
One of the problems in the work place is lack of communication. Most people you speak with are in a hurry and they want what they want NOW.
You need to understand that this behaviour is due to the fact that they too, are probably stressed out and overworked. Try not to get caught up in it or take your conversations personally.
2. Get up and sweat it out
You may consider changing your lifestyle and try exercising if you have not exercised before. If you are not a stranger to exercising or working out, this is just a gentle reminder to get started again.
Exercising could be as simple as going for a walk. You can also find a partner to exercise with or you can join a group class.
The other alternative would be to hire a personal trainer.
3. You are what you eat
It is very difficult to drive your car without gas or fuel. Likewise it is very difficult for you to function if there is not enough fuel in your body.
So you need to eat properly, meaning, having three proper meals a day. These meals need to be balanced with all the proper food that contain the essential vitamins and nutrients that your body needs. Avoid binging on fast food entrees that have high salt and fat content.
Start by having a healthy breakfast every day.
4. Manage your caffeine fixation
Do you find yourself needing a caffeine fix to get through the day?
A cup of coffee is good but if you’re not careful you may sooner or later find yourself needing several jolts of caffeine just to make it through the day.
Remember, the more coffee you take, the more coffee you need. And that’s not a good thing.
So coffee is only a temporary fix and there are other natural ways to boost your energy without caffeine.
No matter how long you have been in business, chances are you are missing one of the four key steps to stay stress-free. So try and follow the steps to make sure that you can work hard but not suffer hard.
