My Clock Faces Me. And I Smile Back

In terms of work deadlines, prioritize these tasks by the bulk and date of submission. By creating and sticking to a schedule, you’ll be giving yourself more time to accomplish – and excel – in your workplace.
Work Hard, Play Hard
The next step in managing job stress deals with how you intend to exert that unnecessary energy. Try to engage yourself in physical activities such as sports. Group games, like basketball, will not only help you let out that pent-up force, it’ll also help you build and maintain a healthier body. If you’re not into sports, try something stimulating to the mind. Try puzzles such as Sudoku, or fixing and creating replica models. This way, you’ll be exerting your brain’s effort into something productive.
Can We Talk For A Minute?
The last step in having a stress-free career is by simply letting someone know you’re stressed. It’s a healthy release, of knowing someone actually listens to your worries.
This certain someone can actually be anybody – a loved one, your work colleagues, even your boss. Just make sure that they actually would want to listen and talk with you.
It is possible to have a stress-free career. It just takes a lot of time, patience and practice to have one. But don’t worry. Having these three steps in mind will help you on to that path. Having a schedule to stick and live through will effectively give you much needed time – for work and for yourself.
Engaging in healthy and stimulating activities are good outlets for built-up stress. And by sharing your feelings with someone else can give you a soundboard for your sorrows and fears. So the next time you do feel stressed, remember these steps and walk up to a stress-free career!
