Tips to Stay Stress
Free at Work
Here is how you can stay
stress free at work.
Love What you Do and
focus on it
This sounds a bit awkward because after all you are not a
student who is asked to focus on studies. But in reality, if you focus on the work
and responsibility that you have been given, you will feel less distracted and
have positive results too. This will help you keep a positive attitude towards
life and probably your boss will also not get annoyed or irritated once he
observes that there is no pending work on your desk. Whenever you feel
disturbed by any element, just recall why you had decided to do this job. This
will help you get recharged once again.
Choose your Friends
Prudently at Work
There is an old advice that you should choose your friends
very carefully and wisely. This is more applicable at your workplace than in
the college or school. Stay away from people who create issues and dramas. If
someone is very polite and buttery to you, be careful from him. Keep your
workplace and home and relations separate. Be good to all and uncover your thoughts
only when you are sure of the confidentiality.
Pay attention to what you eat during the lunch
break. It is good to have a light but healthy lunch when you are in office.
After all you have to work
after finishing your lunch and you should not look sleepy or lethargic just
because you had a heavy lunch.
Personalise your Desk
If you keep pictures and art pieces of your choice near your
workplace, they will fill in positive energy in you always. Change them often
so that you find the place and the environment new and full of energy always.
Keep personal Emails and
Try not to reply personal emails and messages when you are
at work. If you receive any message that is urgent, call the sender and learn
about the urgency. Make sure your family members are aware that you are busy at
Play Soft Music
If you can, play soft music in your area. Make it low so
that other people do not get disturbed. This will help you stay away from
negative thoughts and will also help you concentrate on your work.
Research your Stress
Stress relieving does not follow any hard and fast rule.
Some feel relaxed by concentrating on their work, some like music while some
like to take a short walk. It is good to find out what makes you relaxed and do
that at intervals. Make sure that does not hamper your actual work.
Follow these tips and you will find a difference all around
you. Just keep in mind, stress at workplace is normal and it will remain there
in low or high intensity. It is up to you how you handle it. You can also take
refuge in yoga
and pranayama and do some of the relaxing asanas in the morning so that you
remain stress free the whole day.
