So, be honest, how did you go. (I’m in the danger zone) So what can be done? Now, here are a few stress relievers.
Deep breathing, as a way of quietly and passively letting the stress flow out of your body. Cleaning and simplifying your mind, work and home environment. Siimon makes it a habit of throwing away – regularly. He refers to a de-stressing habit of cleaning his office of clutter, taking things off the desk.
Office workers should get more sunshine. This is a pretty obvious truth to most of us. By taking your lunch outside, and more importantly, attempting to eat five small well balanced meals per day we will achieve positive results cheaply. (Siimon goes into the medical and environmental proofs. He didn’t need to do that for me. You might care to read more authorative texts on stress. I was quite happy with this level of detail.)
Regulate your life. If you cannot, or do not… you are providing no lasting or real benefit to the business you are building, yourself, or those you love. Think about that as you produce for yourself the circle of influence. Draw two circles on a blank page. In the top circle, list the things you can actually change and improve: these things are within your capacity to modify and affect, they live in your circle of influence. In the other circle, list the things you cannot change, it will include economic issues, people, and their feelings about you, challenges and issues others have. These things – if not inside your circle of influence, should be dismissed. In this way, you will have automatically reduced your workload and released a whole lot of stress.
Stress and failure go hand in hand. By taking daily action to keep stress levels in check, you are far more likely to have the energy and the motivation to keep striving for victory. Don’t wait for the heart attack; or death of someone close; a mate or loved one to actually start on this initiative.
