Stress Management Article for the Time Starved

Too stressed to even read a stress management article?

Sometimes as a newbie pursuing career success, you are tempted to complete as much as possible to impress your colleagues and bosses. Part of why you are always so stressed is because you spend too much time chasing after things, rushing to finish up, rushing to complete tasks, etc.

Here is a quick 3 step strategy for you to counter stress in this stress management article.

1. Stop. Relax. Breathe.
Just take a 5-10 minutes, stop working, and relax. Relax by concentrating on breathing or listening to music, or even looking outside the office window.

2. Live Now
Truly, live now. The past is gone; the future is yet to come. I know some of you would think, "Hey, that's asking me not to plan? That's like planning for failure." Well, that's not what I mean. Live now does not mean not planning. It means focusing on the here and now. It means giving your best now without thinking of the regret of past mistakes and without the worry for the future. Take care of the now and the future will take care of itself. Live now means being mindful of what you are doing and doing the best possible. Whatever you are doing, do it mindfully. When you are mindful you are not stressed. You focus.

3. Prioritize Your To Do List
If you are a newbie pursuing career success, chances are you would have a to-do list. It’s all part of being organized and time management. The problem is too many people just have such a long to-do list that it even looks intimidating. Talk about tackling the list! Not all items on that list are urgent. Not all items on that list are important. Prioritize them. Then estimate the time needed to complete each task.

The biggest mistake newbies make is not to put a realistic estimated time needed to compete a task. At the end of the day they feel unsatisfied they have completed so little and feel stressed. To tackle stress, prioritize your to do list and put a realistic estimated time on each task. You will be more efficient and less stressed.

I hope these 3 simple tips in this stress management article is put into practice quickly. Be mindful of whatever you are doing to counter stress.
