A colleague asking a question, a phone call, an advertising email…, you can easily get distracted while you are already late in your work, which can cause additional stress. To avoid distractions, close the door of your office, work in the conference room to be alone or activate your voicemail.
Deadlines, delay, mishaps…, you can easily get stressed. To avoid tensions, plan room for contingency when scheduling your projects. Try to get ahead and avoid procrastination.
Avoid beginning several tasks at the same time because it can lead to mistakes and confusion, and of course stress. Finish one task before you begin the next one. You can draw a plan to resume all the tasks you have to do to make your work easier.
Don’t forget to take breaks. They can help you take your mind of the task during a few minutes and work more efficiently afterwards. A break can help you see things from a different perspective and find new solutions.
