How to Make Your Job Less Stressful

Stop Dreading Going to Work

One of the saddest ways to live is to wake up and let out a big sigh because you are dreading going into work.

Sure, most people would agree that they would much rather spend their day sitting at home doing whatever they want, but that doesn’t mean we should despise going to our jobs.

Take Breaks and Vacations

We are often worried that if we take a break then we aren’t going to get everything done during our day and we will then either get in trouble or have to stay late.

The reality is that we actually are more productive if we take a few breaks during our shifts. Schedule your breaks during your workday and make a point to make sure you are taking your breaks.

Furthermore, a lot of the time we are worried about taking a vacation from our jobs. We tend to have a lot of FOMO (fear of missing out) which causes us to avoid take a vacation because we are worried about what will happen when we leave. Sometimes we also we think our jobs can’t handle us leaving.

Once again, we will actually be more productive if we take a vacation. It is a great way to recharge our batteries so we can really hit the ground running when we return to the office.

Build a Better Workspace

You are going to spend so much time in your workspace. This means that you need to make your workspace as user-friendly as possible. If you need to add a footstool to stay comfortable, sit on an exercise ball or even install a standing desk, do it!

You probably spend just as much time in your workspace as you do in your bedroom. This means that you should take making the perfect workspace just as seriously as organizing your bedroom. 

Ask For What You Need

You are going to have a point at your job where you realize that your day-to-day is going to have to change. You might have to change your hours, how often you can actually come to the office versus working remotely or even physical things you need in order to do your job like a new computer.

Remember, you will not get anything if you don’t ask for anything. If there is something that you need in order to do your job to the best of your abilities, talk to your boss about it. Explain why not having this is keeping your from being productive, and that you will have better output if you get it.

Know When to Leave

Some jobs simply are not going to be a good fit for you, and may turn out to be truly toxic environments. If you try some of these things and your life still does not improve, start looking for new jobs.
