Manage your work pattern to relieve stress
Every job has its stressful times and those which are more relaxed. The key to enjoying your job and avoiding the bulk of the stress as much as possible is to manage your work pattern so that you keep your schedule manageable and focused. This will help you to ensure that all of the tasks that need doing get done, and that you don’t take on too much, thus causing yourself too much stress. Too much work stress can be dangerous for your health, as it can lead to mental issues and even a breakdown if it goes unchecked.
Learn about the types of work pattern
There are three main destructive work patterns which you should be looking out for:
- Jumpers: when you jump quickly from one task to another;
- Fidgeters: when you take too many breaks and are easily distracted; and
- Diggers: those who work on one task for too long and too intensely.
Learn how to change your pattern
- Jumpers: Jumpers need to think about the time that needs to be spent on each task and prioritise those that are most important and pressing. They need to learn to take breaks in between tasks and spend a few minutes de-stressing between jobs.
- Fidgeters: Fidgeters need to remove distractions and learn how to focus on one task at a time. Breaks are necessary, but it is better to take three longer breaks rather than constant breaks throughout the day. Working out appropriate milestones in a task to take breaks can help to avoid getting distracted.
- Diggers: Diggers also need to learn to take breaks and try not to get too immersed in a job. Working only the hours that they are being paid for and not taking work home with them can also be helpful.
