Stress relief


There are many people who suffer from stress on a daily basis. Our Armed Forces in Afghanistan is an extreme, while at the other end, some people can get stressed out over what to wear or have for lunch.

Stress can make us act in a volatile way, it can also render us useless, making even getting up in the morning a task of such enormity… it is best not attempted. However, there are some practical things that can be done to avoid some of those stressful day-to-day occasions.

Often, simply effective time management will help you get more done each day. If you are one of those who have no any organizational ability perhaps the following might help.

Plan each day.

Make a list of what you have to do and then prioritize it and make sure those tasks are completed.

Do not get distracted or get involved in nonessential tasks.

Look at your list and see if there is anything someone else can do… then delegate.

Give yourself time to do a good job… errors from a rushed job are not beneficial to anyone.

Break large, time-consuming tasks into smaller tasks.

When working on one project give it your full attention; turn off your phone and leave your e-mail.

Get plenty of sleep, have a healthy diet and exercise regularly.

Take a vacation to rest and re-energize once the task is complete.

These are not the total answer to stress just perhaps some starter pointers.
