    5 tips to stay sane during the work day


    Excessive workloads, frustration and problems with colleagues can all make it very difficult to stay sane at work. There are, however, a few things you can do to help you stay sane.

    Stay calm, stay sane

    Stay reasonably sane by remaining calm when facing frustrations and showing a little empathy towards co-workers. Losing your temper over broken-down equipment will not mend it, it will just make you feel worse. So will getting mad at an insulting or annoying colleague.

    Remember that they are coping with the same issues you are. Showing a little empathy helps to stay sane and improves relationships.

    Tune out, blow off

    Keeping out of office ‘politics’ will also help you stay sane. If you have your own office, close the door or, if this is not possible, try to keep out of arguments by acting oblivious or putting in your headphones and listening to music.

    If an irritating colleague purposely approaches you with gossip or to draw you into an argument, walk away; blow them off by saying, ‘That’s interesting, but I’m really busy, maybe we can talk about it later’, or ask them for a favour. This typically has ‘gossip-mongers’ running a mile.

    Keep smiling

    Bad mood is contagious, but so are smiles. Do not let someone else’s bad mood drag you down. Try staying positive and see the funny side of things. If a smile and a friendly word fail to break negative energy, walk away or focus on your work.

    Laughter is an exceptional stress reliever, so make yourself and others laugh as often as you can.

    Resolving issues

    Going home knowing that there are unresolved issues waiting for you the next day makes staying sane extremely difficult, so always resolve issues before the end of the day. If you have got into trouble or made a mistake, take the time to put things right and apologise.

    Reducing stress

    Excessive stress at work cannot only make you ill; it can also cause accidents at work. If stress is affecting you, talk to your employer, who has a duty to protect you against work-related health issues and injuries at work. This duty includes keeping stress levels at a minimum.

    If you develop a stress-related condition or have a work accident because your employer did nothing to help you, you may qualify for work injury compensation.
