1.Remember What’s going Right.
As you’re building your business it is possible to only focus on the things that are going wrong and forget to remember the things that are going right. You can improve your stress management by reminding yourself with the moments that have gone your way or who went on your favor. This will help you become positive as you recollect all your accomplishments and achievements.
You can do this by creating a physical list that you can easily see. Stick it on your wall or desk. Whenever you feel stressed you can just look at it and maintain a positive and fighting attitude.
2.Rank your Tasks.
One of stress can come from having too many things to work on. There are some times that tasks can just pile up. This could result in you feeling lost as you don’t know what to do first or where to get started. Don’t try to do everything at once. It is better to focus on one task at a time.
You can prioritize your tasks by assessing which ones are important and need to be done as soon as possible and by assessing which tasks are easier to accomplish. Ranking your tasks can really depend on your preference. Do remember that doing it once right is better than having to redo tasks again and again because you didn’t focus enough to do it right the first time.
