posted by Brent Brown on April 13, 2021

Whether you’re dealing with demanding customers, chatty coworkers, or your never-ending to-do list, you don’t have to let work-related stress get the best of you.

Although you can’t always avoid these and other stressors, how you handle them can make all the difference for you and your well-being.

Here are some ways to keep calm and thrive on from ActiveHealth:

SET BOUNDARIES
Learn to say “no,” and don’t overcommit. Stop your work at a set time each day.

STAY ORGANIZED
Make a list of your projects and deadlines. Prioritize what’s most important or urgent.

GET SUPPORT
You don’t have to do everything yourself. Ask for help when you need it.

LIMIT DISTRACTIONS
Block time on your calendar so you can work undisturbed.

CONTROL WHAT YOU CAN
Many things, especially other people’s behaviors, are beyond our control. Rather than stress out, focus on the best way to react.

TAKE CARE
Eat well, exercise regularly and make sure you take time to relax and recharge.
