The first step to managing your stress is to become mindful of it. A helpful exercise recommended by coaches is to list things that stress you out.
Examples of common stress triggers are:
- Fighting with family members
- Falling behind on daily chores
- An overly demanding work environment
- Being a caregiver to a sick or disabled person
- Financial worries
- Lack of recreational time
- Overbooked, too many commitments
Your list helps you take stock of what’s not working in your life. Don’t be overwhelmed by this big picture. Consider each stress trigger as a problem that may have a solution.
Job stress is a common problem. People tend to think they can’t do anything about it. But that’s not true. Even if leaving a job is not an option, you can still alleviate your stress. Meditation, exercise, and finding a pleasurable hobby are all ways to find relief.
The regular practice of renewing activities reduces your frustration. And you’ll gain activities that give you something to look forward to. That in itself is a huge morale boost.
