How to reduce office stressDay by day, the world is becoming a more work oriented place. A person’s worth is decided on the job he holds, the amount of money he brings home. In this highly competitive world, getting stressed out in order to achieve your targets can make you a victim of physical stress. Here are a few ways in which you can reduce it while at office:

  • Manage your time and organize what you have to do. A well-maintained and well-organized work schedule can help reduce your work load and make sure that you get your work done in time.
  • Calm down: staying calm is extremely important when facing work load or a tough boss. Stay calm and breathe deeply. This will help you lower the excitement in your body and also provide your body with the extra amount of oxygen required.
  • Take a break and move about: even if it is for five minutes, get up from your seat and take a walk. If possible go outside. If you are feeling lethargic then climbing up and down two flights of stairs will bring your limbs back to life and refresh your mind as well.
  • Learn to say No. if there is something that you can’t do, or finish in a particular period of time then say so. Do not set or accept unrealistic goals and break your back over it.
  • Learn to ask for help. If you are trouble with your project, need some tips or advice from your college or boss? Then muster the courage to ask for it.
