Help Reduce Stress
Identifying the cause of your stress is the first step to managing your stress levels to help reduce stress whether it’s caused by work pressure or other issues.
When you’re feeling the pressure and feeling stressed out, it can be tempting to turn to something unhealthy to help you cope to help reduce stress, such as smoking or drinking alcohol.
What you can do to help reduce stress:
Introducing exercise into your routine is a good way clear your thoughts, allowing you to process your thoughts more calmly.
Being passive will not help reduce stress, taking control is empowering and enables you to find a solution that meets your needs.
Connect with people
Spending time with friends, relaxing and laughing is an enjoyable way to relieve stress. Reconnect with your friend ‘support’ network.
Have some ‘me time’
Working long hours can mean that we don’t spend our time doing the the things we really enjoy, make time for yourself to enjoy quality ‘me time’.
Avoid unhealthy habits
Avoid relying upon on alcohol, smoking and caffeine as coping strategies. In the short term, these are temporary ‘crutches’ which will not resolve your issues and may create new ones.
Work smarter, not harder
Prioritising your work, concentrating on the tasks that will make a real impact is one way of working smarter.
Accept the things you can’t change
Sometimes we can’t change a difficult situation that we may be in, instead try to focus and concentrate on the things that you do have control over.
