I hope everyone is having a great weekend thus far.
I know the stressful working week is just around the corner ( I had to bring it up)
But I have composed a few tips to help anyone who is under pressure, stress etc.. Just to help get back on track, I found these very helpful.
Have a look see what you think. All comments and add ons welcome.
Find out what triggers your stress
You can then think about what you can stop doing or change to be able to manage the triggers better.
Sort out your worries
Divide them into those that you can do something about (either now or soon) and those that you can’t.
Make a list of jobs; tackle one task at a time; alternate dull tasks with interesting ones.
Get started by doing one task you feel you can manage; for example, making an appointment or doing the dishes.
Take a regular break
Give yourself a brief break when you feel things are getting on top
of you – get a hot drink or a glass of water or take a short stroll.
List your achievements
When you have done something you feel proud of, write it down.
Remember to include the everyday tasks, like shopping, or preparing a meal. When you feel stressed, read the list to give yourself a boost.
Physical activity can help you feel calmer, stronger, and better able to deal with emotional stresses. Try something you enjoy e.g. walking the dog, dancing, playing a sport or gardening.
Get a different perspective
Discussing your problems with someone else can help you get ideas about new ways of dealing with your problem or stress. Sharing your thoughts can also help you feel calmer and listened to.
