Stress is greedy. If you don’t watch out, it can affect the way that you run your business. You will find yourself making hasty decisions; the quality of your service may take a nosedive, and you may find yourself making one birdbrained mistake to another. If you don’t want stress to turn your life and business upside down, loosen its grip with these tips.
- Heed your body’s stress warnings such as headache, increased heart rate and irritability. Learn to recognize stress signals and deal with them immediately. The simple act of taking several deep breaths can diffuse the effects of stress.
- Be mindful of your health. Adopt a healthy lifestyle as poor health and a weak body is stress’s playground. Have more energy to manage stress by exercising at least 30 minutes a day and eating balanced and nourishing foods. These things can be easily ignored, but they are actually essential.
