5 Ways To Kick Ass Every Day You Work

The workforce has changed. You really don’t need to be a rocket scientist to realise that. In fact, it has changed so much, many of us old-timers have become out-of-date and a little redundant. While I can’t speak for everyone, I can share my experiences of feeling inadequate and constantly second guessing whether or not I make the right decisions.

Coping with stress in the workplace

Stress: We’ve all been there, we’ve all experienced it, but what can we do to manage stressful situations within the workplace? The employees that tend to be more productive are happy, healthy and stress free.

While experiencing some stress in the workplace is completely normal, I mean we all have stressful situations whether it be tight deadlines, confusion with a task, dealing with a harsh client/customer, but it’s excessive stress which can interfere with your overall performance, lowering your productivity and negativity impacting on your mental health.

Are all business women crazy?

"All women are crazy and all men are stupid," said a well-known author when I recently met them at Atlanta's St Regis Hotel for a cocktail.

How true. I know many women will throw their arms up in the air at this one and it is a gross generalisation - but if you think about it, it actually is closer to the truth than most women entrepreneurs would like to admit.

While I try in earnest to be consistent, without too many overwhelming changes to my personality, I think most people who know me well, would say I am a tad crazy - just like all my other female friends. I won't react quite like I use to when it comes to anything emotional or otherwise, because as you get older, the chances are you can hold it in a little more, but YES I do over-think things and I definitely react irrationally at times when I would prefer to not have reacted at all.

How small business owners can manage stress

No matter who you are, at times, as a small business owner, you will get stressed.

It's how you deal with it that counts.

Which has me thinking. I am what I affectionately call a "stress pet". Someone, who stresses a lot. If not daily, bi-daily. I find things to stress about that sometimes deserve my attention, and then others that certainly don't.

Managing stress has always been an issue and I have over time tried everything. But just like any diet, or new health regime, you need to keep with it long after the actual decision to do it in the first place and constantly remind yourself that it is something that requires ongoing work, not just a quick fix.

Stress, does it go with the territory?

Does anyone else feel stressed, often?

I remember when life was easy, and the most stress I would have was getting a parking fine. That was 20 years ago!

Owning a small business can be the most rewarding job in the world, but as rewarding as it is, if you don't actively manage stress, it can sometimes over take you.

Being 100% on-game, every day is impossible. Whilst I am naturally a spirited individual, I feel overwhelmed by the whole work/life/home balance. Am I alone, or is this a common issue for small business owners. So, how do you manage it?

Yoga?
Eating well?
Exercise?
Meditating?
Having a pet in the workforce?
Being organised?
Life coach?
Therapist?
