Are You Feeling Stressed?
For the past year, the pandemic has changed our lives and rewritten the way we work, communicate, and socialize.
For some of us, if not all of us, whether successful or unsuccessful, it’s been one of the most stressful, overwhelming, and exhausting periods in our lives.
The pandemic has brought the need to adapt, pivot, innovate, and reinvent whilst also continuing to move forward. How can we make this less demanding on ourselves?
On June 2nd, I was delighted to take part in a radio interview with NL Morning News to discuss an article I had written recently about more than 5 Practical Ways To Manage Stress. Check out the clip here:
With over a year of global pandemic experience under our belt, one of the most common themes I hear lately is the perception of not having enough time in the day.
According to Statistics Canada, the Top 5 main pressures for Canadians after a year of COVID include health, financial concerns, work, family, and the feeling of not having enough time.
Here Are 5 Practical Ways To Manage Stress To Help You Reduce It And Ensure Enhanced Productivity, Happiness, And Success
1. Manage your priorities: Learn from those that have managed incredible stress for decades, use The Triage System. If you missed the related blog article about how to manage your priorities as efficiently as an Emergency Response (ER) Department, click on this link to learn how.
2. Be compassionate busy! Being Crazy Busy can affect your memory, your judgment, and your impulse control. Make sure to give time to yourself each day.
3. Prepare & automate: Each week, set the important tasks you need to do for the following week. Actively add them to your schedule. Allocate a length of time to ‘work’ including ‘housework’ and allocate the same length of time that you would allocate to your best friend who is coming to help you. This will help you to take a step back or ‘disassociate’ from how much you are asking yourself to do each day.
4. Share your responsibilities: Delegate to other people where possible. Usually, there is someone else who loves the tasks you don’t like to do.
5. Self-care is a discipline: Each day, plan to go for a walk, walk ten minutes in one direction turn around and walk 10 minutes back. Just 20 minutes out of your day can be a game-changer.
If the pandemic taught us anything, lockdown brought upon us a stillness that many of us haven’t faced in a long time. During this short period, we were given the chance to step back and reflect on our past, present, and future.
As we grow closer to a post-pandemic environment, using some of these simple practical methods can help you every day to address your stress and give you more focus, more consistency, and better results.
