Do you feel like you are driving in multiple directions at once – overworked, persecuted and overwhelmed? Many of my training staff come to me to help them manage stress; They've got too much on their album and want to learn how to tease it all and be more productive. They are often surprised when I tell them that one of the most important key to productivity is taking the time to rest and reload.
If you've been struggling to find an inner sense of calm, stress management techniques can be helpful. By taking time to take care of yourself and eat well, you will be on your way to a quieter and more productive life.
If you are like most busy professionals, you have more commitments today than you can easily achieve. If you want to succeed quickly and easily, it's important that you take time to rest and reload. Your body and mind both require down time – not a time for work or family duty. Set aside time once a week (even if you need to schedule a date with you on your calendar) to go for a walk, drink a hot tub or play a sport you like. You return to your commitments, rest, relax and ready to work efficiently.
By integrating these two simple tips into your devastating life, you take important steps to take care of yourself. Stress management starts with your daily choices and every time you make a healthy person you invest in your mental health. So, wake up, breathe and take an hour for you – especially if you do not think you have time.
