WHY DO WE WORRY ANYWAY?
One reason that so many people worry today is that there always seems to be
an endless list of things we feel we need to accomplish.
Here are some techniques for helping to relieve the pressure:
Find time for yourself, even in the middle of busy daily routines. Don't skip breaks or lunch.
Pat yourself on the back each day for what you have accomplished.
Organize your work area to be comfortable and free of distractions.
Commit yourself to finishing assignments within a given time frame.
Pause to consider whether so-called "urgent" requests are really critical rather than responding automatically.
Take time to relax and identify priorities when you feel pressure building. Ask yourself, "Is what I'm doing the most important use of my time right now?"
Exercise and develop hobbies to divert your attention from work-related pressures.
