- Make Time for Meetings and Completing Tasks - Segment your day to allow for meetings and the time necessary to complete tasks. It is very easy to lapse into scheduling meeting after meeting and not allow for the time necessary to actually complete your work. Blocking out time to complete a task on your calendar is just as important as allocating time for meetings.
- Avoid Setting Unrealistic Goals - When you strive to be perfect or try to achieve unrealistic goals, you could be setting yourself up for even greater stress and the risk of failure. Instead, set achievable goals with reasonable timelines. Remember with each successful task you achieve, your sense of accomplishment will grow while your stress level will be reduced.
- Schedule Time for Exercise - Regardless of how busy your schedule is, it is vitally important to get into an exercise routine. Whether you enjoy aerobics, jogging, walking, biking or any type of exercise, a regular routine will help reduce stress and recharge your batteries for the challenges ahead.
- Keep Your Sense of Humor - Laughter can be one of the best stress relievers of all. When things start to get too intense, it could be time for a little humor to lighten the load
