10 best less Stress Ways
It is early morning. You’ve had your breakfast and done your early morning routine. So you head out into your day. And in a short while you’ll sit down at your Computer or you Job and get started with your daily work. How can you get that work done in a way that is less stressful, less energy consuming and simply a bit smarter? Today I’d like to share 10 tips that have helped me with that. I hope you will find something here that will help you too to simplify and relaxify your own daily work.
#1. Don’t multi-task, Do just one thing at a time.
It will help you to get your task done all the way to done, to feel less stressed confused and you’ll do a better job – compared to if you multi-task things. If you feel stressed and overwhelmed during your day then you can tell yourself this simple thing to regain focus and inner clarity again.
#2. Keep a Minimalistic workspace.
It makes it easier to keep your focus and attention in the right place and to keep your thinking clear. I keep a workspace with just a wooden desk, a chair, my computer, a larger screen and a glass of water, tea fruit juice or other drink on that desk.
#3. Go mo’ Slow.
One good way to do more focused work is to go a bit slower than you may usually do. I have also found that by just doing something at a slower pace it feels less like a mental burden and so I am less likely to procrastinate.
#4. Eliminate the Un- Necessary
From time to time ask yourself: “What one task during my day or week can I simply eliminate and not do with few or no consequences? It’s easy to just keep doing everything simply because “you should” or because you’ve always done so. So question how you go about things to free up time & energy. It is often best to simplify by eliminating the least important things – that have little or no consequences.
#5. Cycle between non- & Work.
By doing things this way, you’ll help yourself to keep your mental sharpness and energy up for the whole day & work week. I do this by setting the timer-app on my phone for 45 minutes (or sometimes just 5-10 minutes if it’s a task that I’ve procrastinated on). During those minutes I only focus on the one task at hand and it becomes easier to do so because I know that I only have to do it for this limited time period. When the timer beeps I leave my work for 5-15 minutes. During those minutes I focus only on switching activities: by having a snack, taking a short walk, by relaxing with my eyes closed on the couch or even taking a short nap.
#6. Accept occasional Failure.
Instead, of being to hard, be kind to yourself and smart with your energy & ask yourself: “What can I learn from this? Use what you can learn to do things better to avoid making the same mistake in the future. It’s a better use of your time by learning – than spending it on regretting a past that you cannot change anyway.
#7. Let insignificant Emails wait
Start your day with going through your Email, but only check the urgent ones (ie, from Customers or Suppliers). Do the non-urgent at Lunch or at the end of the day. It could waste a lot of time and be frustrating if you do these. It can also make it hard to even find enough time for some of your most important tasks if you get too distracted by your Inbox. “Dim the In !!!
#8. Limit your daily Info Input.
Regularly unsubscribe to blogs, podcasts, social media channels & email newsletters that doesn’t add much value to your business or life anyway. Keep only the most helpful, funny, inspiring & best ones. This very simple thing can free up quite a bit of both time and attention during the course of a day, week & month.
#9. Find your Focus by asking these Questions
You know, sometimes it’s easy to get off track during the day. To stay on-track or to get back on – if you get distracted – use one or both of these questions:
- What is the most important thing I can do right now – my priority?
- What would I focus on – if I only had 2 hours for work today? Priority !!!
You should, write these questions down on a Note at your desk and/or put a Note on the wall – where you cannot avoid seeing it during your day – to focus on your Priorities !!!
#10. Don’t worry about possible future bad Scenarios – act now !!!
Don’t get stuck in analysis paralysis, over-thinking, lack of confidence or doubts – that come from the uncertainty of the future. Instead, focus on what you actually can do – on what action you can take to move forward. Empower yourself by asking yourself: “What is one step I can take right now – to move forward towards my goal or out of this possible situation?
