Ever been so stressed that you just want to explode. A colleague tells you something annoying and you’re ready to become an attack dog? Of course, you have, for the majority of people, this is normal behavior. Stress is something that has and will exist in our society for as long as society exists.
However, at the same time, stress can be harmful, not only to ourselves but to productivity, as well as to others who you may hurt through spiteful remarks or actions that are done while you are stressed. We cannot eliminate stress completely for you. However, we do have a few techniques, which will aid you in reducing the effect it has on you.
It’s A Battle Not A War – Make Sure You Win The Battle
Depending on what the cause of stress is, often it can be broken into pieces, for example with work. Instead of looking at the entirety of the problem you face, look at it in pieces, this will make it feel more conquerable.
If this is not possible, the next best thing to do is take a break. We are not saying take the afternoon off for sundowners (although that is always a fun task). However, take a few seconds, breath, control your mind state, and hit the stress back through productivity.
