Salesforce Sales Cloud

Stress is inevitable in the modern workplace and life. As per the survey, over 50% of the employees at the workplace are less productive due to stress; besides, these companies that took part in the survey spent around 75% of annual worker salaries to tackle work stress.   

Job stress is detrimental to both employees and employers, resulting in loss of productivity as well as physical & mental imbalance. 

Though the complete elimination of job stress is impossible, one can learn to cope with and manage stressful situations by following these four proven methods to relieve stress.

1.Prioritize Work-Life Balance

Living every moment in life to the fullest matters! A perfect work-life balance results from deep focus and zero distractions in life and work. One should always stay focused on one thing at once, whether it is life or work. Time management is key for finding a balance between work and life. 

It is critical to plan a week in such a way to include

  • Several focus hours at work to spend time on emergency and important tasks
  • Adjustable schedule to prolong the work hours only if it is required
  • A routine to stay fit
  • A hobby to remain creative
  • Dinners, outings, fun & fitness activities with family & friends
  • Most importantly, "ME" time for self-care and personal growth.
  • A healthy work and personal life balance with lifestyle changes and time management skills will reduce job stress and improve quality of life. 

    2.Inclusive environment and work intervals matter!!

    Organizations should mandate skip-level meetings to have a healthy interaction with each employee and understand their expectations and needs about work and work environment. The employees must do Management Training Programs to improve leadership qualities and follow certain work ethics while interacting with superiors and peers. Additionally, one should take regular mini breaks throughout the day to stretch and refresh to remain more productive.

    3.Say No to Multitasking

    Multi-tasking affects work quality and increases job stress. One should work on one task at a time to ensure accuracy and efficiency.

    4.Relax. Refresh. Repeat!

    Let the team outings be extra special with a little more laughter, adventure, fun, and joy. Team outings are a great way to relax, refresh, and strengthen relationships. There are countless options to do as a team, be it doing a social-welfare activity or going on a dine & wine together. Let the spirit of togetherness heighten & lower all the work and personal stress. 

    To conclude, time and energy management are extremely important to add value to work-life and manage stress. Focus on giving the best with a deeper focus on one task at one time at work. Fill your life with life and love by living in the moment and living life to the fullest. Spread positive vibes, love, and laughter around. Live consciously prioritizing self-care besides caring for loved ones. Practice these stress-busting methods and lead a stress-free & happy life.
