From long commute to workload, there are several things that lead to a person’s stress. These main factors could very be: poor leadership, bad management, inefficient training programs, etc. Stress can lead to burnout. While a vacation might sounds like the perfect solution now, many said that their company still expects them to work on holiday.
So even if a vacation can be stressful, how can people truly chill out? Here are 5 tips on what people can do inside and outside the office to restrain and combat stress.
Start your day with intention. Take time by yourself, for yourself, to think about what you want. A lot of research shows that taking 15 to 20 minutes each morning and starting your day with meditation before you have breakfast, before you go on the computer, before you go into all the details of your day, makes a huge difference.
We have another study that shows one in three people work with somebody that makes them want to quit. Therefore, very often the largest source of stress in your day-to-day work life is a co-worker or manager. Constructive, proactive conversations with those people could be a huge source of stress relief. If we can be proactive in approaching and interacting with that person about how things could get better, it becomes a dramatically important way to relieve stress.
We at CTS believe engagement and motivation play important roles in every aspect of life. Knowing how to push yourself forward and crushing your limits should not only be learned, it could also be trained. Check out our courses here for your own personal development now!
