Feeling stressed and overwhelmed? In the world we live in today, being able to manage stress is more important than ever. We are often put in high pressure situations where we have to perform well; you may be juggling a 10 foot long to-do list, or preparing for an important presentation. Basically, things start piling up, and fast. So how do you balance things and ensure your mental health and performance are still at their best?
Listen in to discover 3 tried and true strategies I have personally used (and love) to help manage both long term and short term stress. I also go over what stress might look like for different people, especially if you don’t have a “physical/biological” reaction to stress. For example, my sleep schedule overall is not really affected, but I am able to recognize overwhelm in other ways.
How to Manage Stress in the Long Term
I usually dub “long term stress” as the type that happens over a period of time (a week, month, etc.). A common example is a really busy period when you have tons of things to do. The two strategies I share for dealing with long term stress will overall help you increase productivity and performance.
Managing Stress in the Short Term
In this episode, I also give a tip for dealing with short term stress –the kind that usually stems from nerves before you give a presentation, do a test, or perform something. If you’re also the type that gets really shaky and nervous for these types of things, try the tip out — you’ll find that it provides instant results!
