For this reason, TBOS have listed 8 top tips to keep your mind on the right track and to manage stress more positively at work.

SET GOALS, PLAN AND TAKE ACTION

Set and agree goals, understand what you need to do to achieve your goals, and have a realistic plan. Prioritise your plan and re-prioritise when things change. Take action, review progress, amend your plan accordingly, and keep focused on your goals. Break down larger tasks and projects into smaller more manageable chunks.

ACTIVELY MANAGE YOUR WORK

Actively manage your work and build in time to step back from the day to day and reflect on your work. Tune into the outside world and keep on top of changes affecting your work. Know what is happening in your company by using informative monthly reports (management accounts), monitor key performance indicators and have regular meetings with staff and clients and be sure to listen to their feedback. Build good relationships with all stakeholders and ensure you have agreements in place for all business relationships, as well as insurance for the key risk areas.

MANAGE YOUR TIME

Adopt time management strategies that work for you and your business, get organised, delegate or outsource work to colleagues or outside companies to minimise distractions, procrastination, this will improve your overall productivity and efficiency of the business.

ACCEPT THINGS THAT ARE OUTSIDE OF YOUR CONTROL

Accept that you cannot change the past, that change is part of life, reschedule as a result of change, adapt accordingly, and accept that unexpected events and bad days happen. Understand what is within and outside your control and stay focused on things that you can control. Acknowledge that you always have a choice.

CHANGE THE WAY YOU THINK

Understand what is really important to you, remind yourself of the bigger picture and focus on what matters. Consider your thinking and, where it is unhelpful, look at changing the way you think. Be positive, keep things in perspective and take control of worrying.

CHANGE YOUR APPROACH

Take responsibility for your actions, be assertive, set boundaries, and be prepared to say no. Focus and celebrate what has gone well, value what you have and what you have achieved. Look at what has not got well as learning and change things accordingly. Consider the best and worst that could happen and accept that issues have arisen and find satisfactory resolutions. Be decisive, don’t panic, draw on your resources and trust your knowledge, experience and intuition. Most of all, calm down, think about how you have overcome similar situations in the past and move into a different space to think things through. Be realistic and control perfectionism.

ASK FOR HELP AND SUPPORT

Build a strong support network of trusted contacts and advisors, don’t be afraid to ask for help from someone in your organisation or from a third party.

DON’T FORGET THERE IS LIFE OUTSIDE OF WORK

Take regular breaks during the day, take holidays, keep your working hours under control, eat healthily, exercise more and improve your lifestyle. Build leisure time into your day and get balance into your life. Stress is not necessarily bad or dangerous. If you can manage stress in a positive way you can keep on top of things and you will see stress as invigorating and challenging rather than something to fear.
