Stress is something that everyone will experience from time to time. It can be caused by a number of different factors; you have a dead line coming up, someone on the team is ill so you have to take on some of their tasks or something is happening outside of work that is affecting your work life. Whatever the cause, here are three tips that we, at 2xN, think will help you.
If you have a build-up of things to do, then knowing where to start can be hard. Creating a list can help to have a clear idea of exactly what you need to do and an order in which you should achieve them.
1. Start by making a list of everything you need to do
2. Write down the due date and size of each task
3. Put them in a relevant order (you might want to start with the big tasks and work your way down or start with the small tasks or you may also want to start with the nearest deadline)
Once you have the right order you can start with your tasks and have a clear path of where you will be going. One of the great feelings in life is that sense of accomplishment you get when you have ticked all your items off your to-do list!
It is scientifically proven that exercise increases the level of endorphins in your body – that can be a walk, run, circuit or even yoga. Endorphins are a chemical in the brain that have a ‘feel good’ power. Don’t think that leaving the office for exercise is a waste of time! It can help you to refresh your mind and come back with a positive, clear work mode that will help you get more done. Lucy and Naomi will often go for a lunch break jog, to help them reenergise and take on the afternoon full force.
If you know that you struggle with a certain task then you may push it to the bottom of the list. But it is important to remember that you have a team behind you that will always be willing to help you and teach you along the way. Work to your strengths! If you know that you will find a certain task, ask one of your colleagues to help you out - “teamwork makes the dream work”.
