Find out the top tips to cope with stress in your job.
Most of us are running hard: juggling a social life, work, family, friends, errands, and…we’re missing one…oh, of course! Sleep! In short, lives are becoming busier and people today are trying to squeeze more work into a single day than ever before.
With little down time, many are starting to feel the effects of burning a candle at both ends. This results in deteriorated health through heart disease, stress, poor eating, and simply not taking care of one’s self.
April, known as National Stress Awareness Month, is dedicated to shining a light on how stress can be detrimental to people’s health, lives, and career. Fortunately, work stress doesn’t have to be ever-present in our lives (no matter how impossible that may seem!). Three out of every four American workers report stress on the job. With that said, note these three tips to beat work stress and prolong your career!
- More sleep – A lack of sleep can impact our cognitive performance, such as our attention and working memory, research shows. As we juggle work with home, a full 8 hours of sleep should be had each night!
- Live right – From eating balanced (and regular!) meals, to regularly exercising, you can reduce stress and trips to the doctor and costly outlays to operate more effectively on and off the job.
- Pace yourself – It’s east to feel the pressure of work and home, but scheduling time for even the little things and setting realistic time frames can reduce the buildup of stress!
Good health means being better equipped physically and emotionally for your next career move! Not only will you feel better, but so will your bank account!
