10 Tips to Reduce Stress at Work

  1. Aim to meet regularly with your boss or your team on your progress and how you are getting on and any changes which may be required.
  2. Do an audit of your skills, what you enjoy doing, what motivates you and if there is something you could do within the organisation you work in or in a new organisation. I did this one day on the train and it helped me focus on what I really enjoyed doing.
  3. It is good to have a clear career goal and a plan of how you will get there. Remember: if you don’t know where you are going, how will you know when you have got there?
  4. Believe in yourself and be positive and when there is that negative niggle at the back of your mind, change it to a positive one.
  5. Network and join professional groups or a charity as a volunteer and you can contribute which in turn can raise your profile.
  6. Write a newsletter or an article for your organisation about what a day in your life is since you are reducing stress at work.
  7. Speak to other team members about your work and share good practice.
  8. When someone looks very busy, offer them some support which can help within the team and when you do this, others can follow.
  9. If your plans do not work out, look at another way which may be longer, or it could be shorter, but you will get there.
  10. Never, give up. My Father always said ‘if at first you don’t succeed, try, try and try again. Keep repeating to yourself and you will succeed even if it is in your own eyes.
