Working is a sure way to add more stress to your life. There are high demands, a personal life and long hours that you must juggle. It’s no wonder many people often feel tired and worn out. That’s why it’s important you take responsibility for yourself and manage your stress appropriately.
Try not to focus on the negative parts of work and keep a positive attitude. Work hard and do your best, but don’t beat yourself up in the process. There are ways to get over the hump and into a better place. Focus on you and putting your health first. See the best ways to overcome stress at your job.
Whining about every obstacle that comes your way doesn’t work, and it gets old. What you need to do is figure out a way to clear your head and problem solve. For example, if you’re on your computer and all of your data gets wiped, try not to panic. Focus on finding a solution. Hire professionals who have a data retrieval tool to help you get it all back. Technology is our best friend until it fails us. That’s why it’s important to know who to turn to in a crisis.
Go for a Walk
Get up and go for a walk if you’re feeling stressed. Take in the nature, sights and smells around you and disconnect from the office. Exercise will help bring you back to a peaceful state where you’re able to function. Workout in the morning or right after work if you need more of a sweat session; it’s important to exercise each day and get your blood pumping. Work through the stress in the gym, and you’ll come out ahead both mentally and physically.
Enjoy Weekends & Take Vacation
Weekends are meant for you to unwind and relax. Be careful not to over-schedule yourself and feel awful by the time Sunday night rolls around. Use your weekends as a chance to rejuvenate and forget about work for a few days. It’s also important you use your vacation time. If you don’t, it’s likely you’ll save it all and never use it. You earned your vacation hours, and you should do a fun activity to celebrate. You don’t have to go anywhere fancy, but you should plan an adventure that’s rewarding to you.
Eating junk food all day is going to make you feel terrible. You won’t have any energy, and you’ll likely be tired and crabby. Eat a nutritious breakfast at home, pack a healthy lunch and look forward to cooking a tasty dinner at night. What you put in your body will certainly affect your stress levels and determine how well you’re able to function each day. Manage your stress by being kind to your mind and body.
There’s no magic formula for beating stress. What you can do is implement habits that promote a healthy lifestyle. These are the best ways to overcome stress at your job.

St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly. I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos. Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you. This was a super easy one for those little hands. I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting. The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper. EASY, but they enjoyed it! :) It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge! :) I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!
MY MEMORIES SUITE Review and giveaway! (#1 rated scrapbook software) The above is one of the scrap pages I have created. Super easy and super fast. I only took a couple minutes to create a 8 page photo book. I am still going to do some more with adding more embellishments! The below is one I created all from scratch and it only took me about 5 minutes! :) SO EASY! Here is a great video explaining more about the product. There are also tutorials available on youtube.com I am not sure if you are like me but I have spent hours online trying to upload photos to the web to place them into something I was trying to create. THE BIGGEST BONUS to My Memory Suite is the fact that it is downloaded to your computer so you do not have to wait forever for a picture to upload! It made my experience much quicker then other programs I have used online. The scrapbook software was very easy to download on my computer and did not take long to learn how to create. :) One feature t
