How to Beat Workplace Stress

Focus on reducing stress in the workplace. Here are some strategies to help you beat workplace stress and stay calm, focused and in control.

  • Break big projects into smaller, manageable jobs
  • Use calendars and apps to help you manage projects and stick to deadlines

Manage your time

Communicate

  • Practice being an active listener to avoid misunderstandings and conflicts

Keep healthy

  • Eat a balanced diet and stay hydrated
  • Practice relaxation techniques like deep breathing or meditation

Set boundaries

  • Put clear boundaries in place between your work and personal life
  • Learn to say no to doing extra work if you’re already overwhelmed
  • Take time off when you need to rest and recharge

Show consideration

  • Be kind and supportive to your colleagues
  • Offer help when someone seems overwhelmed
  • Listen to the point of view of others
