How to Manage Workplace Stress

While some stress at work is normal, too much of it can take a toll on your productivity, success and overall health. The following tips can help to reduce your stress and increase your happiness on the job.

Identify yourtriggers. The Mayo Clinic citesthat stress in small doses actually can energize and motivate you to deal with workplace challenges. However, it is important to recognize the warning signs and symptoms of excessive stress. One way to do this is to keep a stress diary. Note various situations and your reactions and evaluate the issues at the end of each week. Doing so will help you get a better idea of what causes your stress and determine solutions to cope with it.

Mind Tools provides you with a stress diary template.

Prioritize tasks. Often, we underestimate how long things will take and over-commit to taking on too much in one day. To help curtail stress, write down everything you absolutely must get done that day, and make a step-by-step plan for larger projects. By focusing on one manageable task at a time, you’ll feel better about your workload and your ability to accomplish it. details how to make a custom To-Do liston Excel.

Think positive. Sometimes, job stress can escalate simply due to our mindset. Making a conscious effort to turn self-defeating, negative thoughts and habits around can greatly improve your motivation, work ethic and mood. Author Kendra Cherry describes how to becomea positive thinker.

Take care of yourself. The better you feel, the more resilient you are to handling stress at work. Simple routines such as regular exercise, getting sufficient sleep and maintaininga healthy diet can go a long way in maintaining your physical and emotional health, making the workday easier to face.
