Remarkably Effective Ways to Deal with Stress and Anxiety in Your Business
by Chantal Beaupre’s
Do you often feel like you’re going to lose your mind if you continue to work in such a stressful workplace – especially when this so-called stressful workplace is your own home-based office?
We, business owners, all experience stress and anxiety “on the job.” It is not unique to anyone, but what is unique to each of us, though, is how we deal with it.
You can learn to deal with business-related stress in a positive, self-helping manner so it doesn’t continue to hold you back. When you are unable to deal with stress and anxiety effectively, you can’t be as efficient or effective in your business and, more importantly, your health will suffer.
Remarkably Effective Strategies to Deal with Stress and Anxiety
When you experience stress in your business, you will highly benefit from learning how to harness your unpleasant emotions so you can move forward. Luckily, there are many ways you can do this; you just need to find which strategy works best for you.
Here are five strategies to help you reduce your stress and anxiety feelings:
1.    The best thing you can do when you feel the anxiety and stress come to a boil is to stop what you’re doing and just breathe. You’ll be surprised at how much it helps just to take a breath and gather your thoughts. In fact, take ten slow, deep breaths, then return to your work. The great thing about this technique is that you can do it anywhere, even when you’re sitting in your home-based office!
2.    Take a moment to write. When you start to experience stress, find some privacy, pull out a blank piece of paper, and write freely for five minutes. Free, uncensored writing for just a few minutes will allow you to get the anxiety out of your body and mind. When you put all of the anxiety feelings down on paper, crumple it up and throw it away. Then, do your best to return to your work without the stress and anxiety.
3.    Use positive imagery. Keep a calming picture on your desk or on your computer background and when you feel like you cannot take it anymore, stare at the image and imagine yourself there. Doing this for even 60 seconds can restore your sanity so you can move forward without the crippling power of stress and anxiety.
4.    Listen to peaceful music. If you put on calming music when you’re feeling anxious, you may find that it can instantly calm you like nothing else. If you keep the music quiet and peaceful, you’ll most likely feel at ease during your work day. Music is a great way to find peace and lose the stress.
5.    Use rational thinking. When irrational, anxiety-creating thinking is getting the best of you, you can counter it with rational, self-helping statements and thoughts. You can say things such as, I will look for the possible fun and enjoyment that I can often find in doing difficult things that are wise for me to do. When you repeat rational sayings in your life, you’ll soon be able to squeeze out irrational thoughts from your mind, and move towards the rational.
These are five simple ways to cope with stress and anxiety in your business. The great thing is that you can quickly and easily incorporate these strategies into your work day without allowing stress and anxiety to overwhelm and control you.
Every day will bring new stressors into your home-based office, and that is why you will highly benefit from having several different coping techniques in your stress and anxiety management toolkit. Once you begin to incorporate these strategies into your life, you will find that everyday business-related stress will become easier to deal with, and you will actually feel healthier, more productive… as well as much calmer and happier!
