1. Work with purpose

What does your work mean to you? How does it help others? Rediscovering your purpose can provide you with direction and give you a sense of accomplishment.

2. Take control

Gaining autonomy in your role enables you to manage your time and tasks effectively. Use to-do lists and Action Plan to bring order to your workload.

3. Rationalize your workload

When things “don’t let up” it can make you feel demoralized and stressed. Do a Job Analysis to clarify what’s expected of you and what isn’t. This will help you to prioritize what tasks are important, and what can be delegated or even postponed.

4. Exercise regularly

Exercise can help you to “switch off” fully from work and other stressors. It can also improve your wellbeing and enable you to get a better night’s sleep.

5. Learn to manage stress

Use techniques like mindfulness and deep breathing to stay calm and relaxed. This will also help you to stay more relaxed and prepared to take on new challenges.
