Work can be overwhelming. If you keep these six tips in mind, you may be able to overcome the stress associated with work. First, try to practice mindfulness. You can do this by measured breathing or simply being present in the moment. Second, is to break large tasks into smaller chunks. When you complete smaller tasks the feeling of accomplishment will help you move on to the next. Third, limit sugar intake. The highs and lows of sugar can negatively affect your work and productivity. Four, make sure to exercise. Exercise give you energy and relives stress. Five, make sure to take breaks. Most people think working straight through is admirable, but it is better for concentration to take a break now and again. And, finally, watch your caffeine. Like sugar, it can have ups and downs that negatively affect your mood and energy, but more than that, it can affect your sleep. A good night’s sleep is essential to managing stress and optimizing your productivity.
