How to Manage Workplace Stress

TalkShop tips to manage stressCompanies are streamlining, requiring workers to multi-task. With a smaller work force to take on additional load, it is not surprising for team members to feel burnt out. This could adversely affects one’s disposition, well-being, productivity, and relationships.

Sheila Viesca, TalkShop CEO explains, “Inevitably, we learn to accept that stress is a part of life. Inability to cope is evident in someone who is irritable, unproductive, and out of control. The good news is that there are techniques to intelligently cope with stress.” She offers the following tips:

1. Be in good health. Eat healthy, exercise, and get enough sleep.

2. Learn to manage your feelings, reactions, and how you spend your time. These are within your sphere of control.

3. Recognize when you are stressed and use your senses with simple stress-busting techniques that soothe you best – whether it be listening to music, breathing deeply and imaging, or using acupressure.

4. Be realistic. Do not aim for perfection. Strive to give your best.

5. Control social media interruptions. Do not get carried away, focus on more important tasks, and take on the rest during free time.

6. Schedule breaks to snack, stretch, and walk a bit.

7. Don’t spread yourself out thinly. Be respectful of your well-being and time. You can be most productive by setting priorities – with yourself on top of the list.

8. Make friends and be positive so you may make coming to work pleasurable.

9. Inject a decent dose of humor in your interactions without disrupting work flow.

10. Resolve conflicts and do not hold grudges. Let go of old hurts, disappointments, and negativity.
