Sorry I have been slightly AWOL at the moment things have been really busy and I haven’t been able to get everything I wanted done! I don’t think this post could of came at a better time so today I am going to talk to you about the importance of accepting you are stressed and what you can do to help control it.
At the moment I have a crazy workload…essays to write for uni, a full time job, a blog to run and a social life to maintain! It is hard to juggle all these things and not feel the pressure especially since I want to do my best in all of them!
Here are some of my tips for dealing with stress:
1. Plan your time – This is crucial you need to plan your time, divide the jobs you have in a list of ‘most urgent’ to ‘can wait’ and look at your diary and make adjustments to suit you but don’t forget to leave downtime for yourself or you will end up ill from burning yourself out not good!
2. Have ‘me’ time – It is important to take time out of your day and do something you love and enjoy to relax – it will make you feel so much better! For me I like to workout and cook these things force you to stop focusing on everything else and just concentrate on the task in hand
3. Set deadlines – If you have lots of little tasks set a deadline for each and make sure that it is complete by that point, it will allow you to move on from it and come back to correct any errors with a fresh pair of eyes.
4. Go outside!! – I would say this is the most important one of all, don’t spend your life cooped up in your room or office slogging away if it is sunny take your work outside or to a cafe. These simple things can boost your motivation and since its sunny you will feel happier which will reduce your stress.
Well there you have it a short and sweet post on my top tips on dealing with stress. Comment below with your tips!
