10 things to do when work becomes stressful
Focus on the most important things. If you feel overwhelmed, prioritize and then ask your boss if your priorities are in line with their thinking
2. Focused work
Don't multi task. Don't get distracted with things. Focus and you'll find that you can get a lot more done than you thought.
Not all work has to be completed by you. Sometimes you can find others to help.
4. Take a break
Really take a break. None of this eating lunch at your work desk. Go outside. Disconnect.
5. Take a day off
Call in sick. Use a mental wellness day. Take a vacation. Spend some overtime to take a day off.
6. Break up your day with time for yourself
Exercise during lunch. Or take half an hour at the end of the day to focus on planning your day.
7. Practice time blocking
With time blocking, there are a few things you practice: prioritization, estimating, focusing and organizing your schedule around the most important things.
8. Spend some time focusing on the important but not urgent things
You'll always have time for the important and urgent things at work
9. Zoom out
Strategize. Get big picture. Focus on the things that will really make a difference.
10. Let it lag behind
How important are the deadlines anyway? Can it wait a day or two?
