Tuesday Ten: Tips for Managing Stress

Lauren Conrad's tips for managing stress

Keeping busy is never a bad thing, in my opinion. At work, be busy usually means that things are going well and they are seeing success. But have you ever noticed that when things are going well at the office, it seems inevitable that you’ll be getting less sleep, feeling a little less sane, and drink more caffeine? It is a bit of a juggling : When one aspect of his life is busy and prosperous, usually there is another version of the story that involves a stressed and tired version of himself. When we fail our stress properly at times like these, it may be difficult for us to perform important tasks and maintain productivity. So with that in mind, today I’ve come up with some strategies and tips to help you get through those inevitable moments of high stress in your life. Check them out below …

1. Make a to-do list.

If you are a visual person, this is a great way to manage stress. Lists will keep you organized and is quite satisfying to see the tasks throughout the day. I often two types of to-do lists: daily and long term. For my daily to-do list, I write down all the tasks that I have to perform that day. They are not negotiable and must be completed by the time I leave office. For my long-term to-do list, I include tasks that have to be made in the near future. It’s time to dust off the scheduler and put to good use.

2. Find the source of your stress.

At some point it is difficult to get to the root of the problem, which is the first step in eliminating it. When you are overwhelmed, take a moment to think about the source of your stress. It may be necessary to lighten your schedule (learn to say can not be hard!) organized your work space messy or even step out of what is working so you can clear your mind.

3. Be positive.

When I’m stressed often I have to remind myself that it is a just a bad day, not a bad life. The best way to manage stress is to face it with a positive attitude. Frame a photo of you and your boyfriend or best friend and put in a place where you can see every day or add a glass of fresh flowers to your desktop. Put your work in perspective and know that tomorrow is a new day to start again.

4. Tackle one thing at a time.

When you start running all tasks must be performed through your mind all at once, you can easily get overwhelmed. This is where planning will be very useful. Remain productive throughout the day can be a challenge if you’re on the verge of a nervous breakdown. Prioritize your tasks and give full attention to one thing at a time will help you stay focused and organized!

5. Eat foods smarter.

feed your body food that will keep it working at its best. Although it may very tempting to grab fast food or a bag of potato chips fast when you’re nervous, taking the time to fuel your body properly can have positive effects. Adding super and other nutrients and protein-rich foods in your diet will remain energized and ready to face the day head on. If you’re short on time, plan ahead by preparing food , or make an healthy and delicious smoothie .

6. Make some time with me.

When life gets busy, you tend to forget to take care of the most important thing: ourselves! Make sure you find time to engage in his favorite pastime, getting a mani / pedi , or just wear a mask at night and rest. It is important and absolutely necessary to pamper yourself occasionally.

7. Learn and practice relaxation techniques.

Yoga regular exercise , breathing techniques, and is are all great ways to help with stress. Exercise releases endorphins, which make you feel happier and more energetic. If you’re short on time or can not leave the office, stretch on your desktop can help get your body moving, too.

8. Surround yourself with happy people.

People you surround yourself can greatly affect your attitude on a day to day basis. Surround himself with strong, positive people and support will help you stay motivated and keep going. toxic relationships have a way of zapping your energy and can only fall in the long run.

9. Turn your brain (and phone!) At night.

A good night sleep is crucial for a productive day and free of stress . If you are glued to your phone or laptop like me, it’s hard to relax at night. When you are approaching bedtime, be sure to disconnect at least one hour before getting into bed. Staring at a screen can hinder your ability to fall asleep and can even mess with your internal clock. So grab a cup of tea, read a good book, and give your brain a break.

10. Do not be afraid to ask for help.

We often forget that our family, friends and coworkers are there to support during times of stress. When you feel overwhelmed, simply ask for help. Asking for help does not mean you are not able to complete the task. Ask your sister to help with invitations baby shower or your co-worker for advice on how to perform a work task more effectively. You will probably find they are more than happy to help.

I hope these tips can help you relax. Some may take some practice, but eventually you will be able to keep your stress to a minimum.
