How to De-stress at Work

The Christmas holiday season is almost over. For most of us, this means going back to work and spending time in front of the computer.

Calm down, clam down! Put your hands behind your back and step away from your desk.

There is no anti-aging skin care product that can be as effective for maintaining youth than proper stress management at work. Don’t get worked up with all the office politics and trivial issues. We are the biggest cause of our own workplace stress. It’s time to de-stress.¬† Find out how


 

1. Have enemies at work.

Not everyone will like you. This is a very important concept. No matter how friendly you are to a person, and how much of an effort you give to that person, he/she simply will not like you. Unless you’ve fallen in love with this person, put him/her in your “who cares” list. This is the list of people at work that you don’t need to waste your time and energy with. Spend more time with those who care.

2. Don’t get too worked up over nothing

Don’t get too worked up over things that don’t matter as much as we think they do. Most often, it is our own perception that causes us to stress over minor trivial issues. For example, you walk by one of your colleges and you greet him/her with a “hi, how are you”, but you don’t get any response back. Some of us may get paranoid and start thinking why this person is so rude and doesn’t reply. Again, unless you have a crush on this person, WHO BLOODY CARES HOW THIS PERSON RESPONDS. There could be a hundred different reasons why this person didn’t respond.

3. Is your boss picking on you?

What is this, your supervisor is picking on you? Are we still in the 5th grade? It’s normally your incompetence to fulfill your role that causes dissatisfaction with your boss.¬†Examine yourself first before placing the blame on your supervisor, manager or boss.

Normally the criticisms and feedback are work related and you should never take personal abuse from anyone at work.

What if you’re not happy with the criticisms? Go to someone with higher authority, confront the person head on, or leave the company. Most problems has a simple answer, we just make the problems more complicated by thinking too much.

4. Office politics

Office politics is an art form which requires the proper social skills and years of practice and experience to master. It’s a social skill that not all of us have and unknowingly suitable for those who have a “Who Gives a Sh**” attitude.

5. Work is only a part of your life

People get so wrapped up in work and forget it’s only a part of their lives. It takes something like a death in the family (touch wood), a major health scare (touch wood) or a significant event for people to gain perspective and say ‘Hey, work stress is not that important after all.

6. Focus on now, not later

Focus on what’s happening now. It will help you get things done much quicker leaving you with more time to relax and unwind.

Managing your time will help you become less anxious.

7. Your company doesn’t give a dam about you

Do your best, learn what you have to learn, gain the experience you need and if you are unhappy, then move on. For big corporations, you are only a worker. Even the company CEO is only a worker to the company board of directors. You are paid to fulfill your work role. You can go outside the box and do more to gain promotions and accolades, but ultimately if you are not happy with your working environment, move on and stop windging.

8. Smile

You can’t control who likes you. What you can control is who you’re friendly to. As a rule of thumb, if you smile to everyone you meet, you’ll be sure to make more friends then if you carried a frown.

8. Say ‘NO’

“Can you help me with……………?”

If you respond with a ‘yes’ every time you hear this sentence, then you’ll be a very busy stressed out person at work. Learn to say ‘NO’ sometimes (especially to your enemies list)

9. Be grateful

Being grateful for your health, your money, your family etc……………… can help you calm your mind. Be grateful for the things you have.

10. Little things that make a big difference

Minimise your alcohol, caffeine and sugar intake, have plants nearby, look at inspirational images, take annual and sick leave when necessary, go out for a walk and get some fresh air.
