It’s not for nothing Russian’s say that Monday is a difficult day. Most of us think that the weekend was too short and we didn’t have enough time not just to relax, but to finish work we had to do around the house. We wake up on Monday morning hating the alarm, hating our jobs, hating the world a little bit. It’s great if we had a good weekend that filled us with positive emotions. But what if something happened on the weekend that pushed you out of your equilibrium? Then you come to work and find out that on top of all the work that was left over from last week, there is an urgent project that’s due in 10 hours and a last minute meeting that will take at least 2 hours of your already non-existent day.
If you haven’t figured it out yet, we are talking about stress. We all feel it, some more often than others. Some of us know how to deal with it and stay productive. Others struggle, day after day, with work related, family related, life related stresses, becoming less productive and more stressed. This eventually leads to health problems, which stress us out even more. Today, we will give you some pointers on how to deal with this stress. We are not going to try to tell you the utopian ‘Take a vacation!’ Who has the time?
Though we hope that your life is a nice picnic on a sunny day on a daffodil meadow, if you ever encounter anything stressful, try any of the 5 pointers above and you’ll be surprised how quickly your problems will seem very much solvable and not that big. Enjoy yourself!
