As scheduled, we will add tip #2 for dealing with a stress in the workplace. I’m interested to know how the breathing technique from Tip #1 worked out last week. This week it would be best to practice Tip #1 and incorporate Tip #2.
When we feel stressed at work, it’s important we learn how to harness our emotions so we can move forward. The good thing is, there’s tools for this. Today will be focus on :
Taking a moment to write!
When you start to feel stress, find some privacy, pull out a blank piece of paper, and write freely for 5 mins. Free, uncensored writing for just a few minutes will allow you to get the emotions out of your mind. When you put all of your emotions down on paper, crumble it up and throw it away. Then try to return to work without the stress.
Each day will bring new stressors into your workplace and that why having different techniques in the tools box that you quickly and easily incorporate in your day. Share how Tip #2 has made your life easier to manage stress in the workplace.
Happy Writing and Wellness,
