Living Healthy, Working Well
Learn to Manage Stress
It can seem as though we're always at work. First, there's the long list of tasks to tackle at our "day jobs." After hours, if texts, emails and calls from work intrude, it can be hard to turn the job off. Then there are our "second jobs." This can include actual part-time work, or the countless unpaid tasks we do such as picking up kids and taking them to activities, studying for school, paying bills, cooking meals, and running errands.
The packed schedules of life today can cause anxiety and stress. This can lead to illness, depression and strain on relationships. So it's important to take time for yourself and learn how to.... relax! You have the power to gain some control over the many stressful elements of life.
Make a Plan for Balance
Perhaps the one-two punch of work and home life stress is getting you down. Signs that you're getting out of balance can include trouble concentrating or not being as creative as usual. You might feel emotions such as anger, sadness, guilt, or frustration. Developing a strategy for better balance can help.
