Work stress How will I get all of this work done?

 What will happen if I’m late…or don’t get it done at  all?

 

Feeling overwhelmed by everything you have to do is  becoming commonplace. Many organizations have adopted  the “do more with less” approach. That means you have to do  more in less time and with fewer people.

 

We become anxious when we’re faced with anything that’s new, unknown, or uncertain. We all know how it feels to under mounting pressure – tense, fearful, irritable, and ultimately exhausted. We try to breathe and relax, but our body is restless. We try giving ourselves a pep talk, but our mind ruminates. We try to drown out the worrisome voice, but the wine wears off at 3 am.

Since your mind is dwelling on the problem anyhow, what if you consciously controlled the way in which you were thinking about the stressful situation? Wouldn’t it be great to be able to manage your mind so that you had the power to think about problems more productively?

Rather than envisioning the worst that could happen, what if you imagined the best possible outcome? Rather than fueling your anxiety, you’d calm yourself. And when your mind is calmer, it’s much better at creating solutions and finding people who could support you in working toward them.
