Reducing Stress at Work

16 Nov 2012 10:17 AM | Katharine C. Giovanni, CCS (Administrator)

With the holidays fast approaching, I think it goes without saying that our stress levels are going to up.  With that in mind, here are three ways you can reduce some of that stress in your office …

STOP checking your email and texts every few minutes!!

Check your email when it fits your schedule and not the other way around. Read it at your own pace rather than the minute it arrives. You don't have to look at your phone the minute it makes that ding sound!!

Plus it goes without saying here that you should NEVER check your phone while driving. I can't tell you how many people I've seen on the road driving and texting at the same time.

Use your voice mail.

Let your voice mail answer the phone for a while. You can return the call later.  This way you can finish that report your working on! 

Take one thing at a time, one day at a time.

When you start to feel overwhelmed, try taking one thing at a time. Make a list of things you need to do and put the most urgent one at the top. Once you have completed it, cross it off and move on to the next one. Soon they’ll all be done!   That’s what I do … I run ICLMA and Triangle Concierge out of our office so to avoid getting overwhelmed by it all, I do one project at a time. Otherwise I would go nuts!!

Until next time!
