Eliminate Stress with Some Not So Common Sense

Aug 17, 2007
There are several things people can do to mitigate the stress and strain that can happen in the work place. One needs to remind their self of the purpose. On those days when you have several meetings and all the rest of it, remember what the larger purpose is, and recommit yourself to that larger purpose. That in itself is protective.

Another thing you can do is to develop new skills. What can you refine that would make you feel that you're doing a better job everyday. Some of those skills can be computer skills, public speaking skills, management skills, things that would make you feel more of a master of some of the everyday challenges that you are feeling. One of the biggest sources of stress relief can be connection to other people. One of your greatest resources is allowing other people to help you and to reach out and help other people, as well just to get to know them and connect with them. Make work be a human experience as well as a task experience.

Thriving in Work and Life

Response to change and proactively managing your life and work is an inside and out job. How often have you noticed the energy level of people who know what they want and what they are willing to give up in order to get it? The world seems to clear a path just for them. We can clear our own paths by focusing on what is truly important in our lives. Bit by bit, we can make those lives as full as our calendars. But it does take resolve and dedication.

Some of the disciplines to place on our workout rotation would be the following 4 items:

1. Protect your time. Now, more than ever, we need superior time management skills and habits to maintain personal space and decrease stress.

2. Make learning a life habit. Learn a new skill at a regular interval. Not only does it expand your options both at work and in your home life, but it engages you in new ways with the world and with your own capabilities. And greater economy will result.

3. Be a great listener. Instead of reacting in debate mode when a disagreement arises, ask that person what experience has led them to their point of view. Learning how to really listen well will help us to re examine our own convictions, to be open to new ideas, and to relate better with our colleagues and family members.

4. Nurture positive relationships. With coworkers, leaders and family, our sense of connectedness can be our greatest source of strength. Finding common ground can be an uncommon asset.

Lastly, it is important to be in top condition, physically, emotionally, and mentally. Keeping ourselves toned will allow health and vitality to enhance every aspect of our lives with positive, energetic action.
