Do you find yourself under stress at work?

Let’s face it, being a leader can be stressful.

I’ve been there, done it and my hair turned grey over it!

But it needn’t have been the case if only I had known at the time how to live with it.

So, how can you best deal with the stress you feel?

Let me share my 3 top tips for beating stress once and for all:

1. Be Organised

If you are leaving tasks open-ended or failing to follow through this will have a massive impact upon your stress levels.

You need completion in these areas. Write down what is outstanding and either do them or bin them on a regular basis.

2. Take Exercise

You need to get away from work and have an exercise program, even if this is just a walk around the block.

You need to take some of your frustration out on the treadmill, on the punch bag or simply strolling around the park – taking in the fresh air can make you feel fantastic.

3. Relaxation and Rest

Mental stress is caused by an overuse or misuse of the mind.

For instance, if you perform intense mental work many hours a day, or if you work long hours on the computer, it can cause an imbalance in Prana Vata, the mind-body operator concerned with brain activity, energy and the mind.

To address this, make sure you get a good nights sleep, have a regular massage, try aromatherapy, meditation or just go to the movies!

Anything where you can just switch off, even if it is just for an hour or so.
