Alleviating stress caused by the business environment

Stress is the biggest villain we are facing in our modern life, working in a continuous stressful situation is making you sick. Although most of the people seem to ignore stress, it is affecting you mentally and physically.

Countless studies are being conducted on the effects of stress in daily life, and most of them found that this competitive business environment is the leading cause of rising stress levels, workers are forced to perform better which is leading to an excess of stress levels.

What are the warning signs of stress?

Some of the common signs that you should not ignore are:

  • Feeling anxious
  • Fatigue
  • A headache and muscle stiffness
  • Lower sex drive
  • Low concentration
  • No interest in work
  • Feeling unsatisfied

Let’s discuss some of the hacks to reduce stress from our daily life.

How you start your day, matters!

One of the common mistakes most of the people do is the way they start their day, they wake up late and run for the office, they are stressed from the first minute they wake up. They are stressed to get ready on time, they are stressed to reach office and then they are stressed to complete their job targets.

If you really want to start your day well, then try waking up 2-3 hours before the office. That way you will be able to devote some time for meditation, exercise, social media, replying to emails, etc.

Setup clear priorities

Most of the people who are stressed at work are found to lack prioritization, they are doing wrong things at the wrong time, which add up to the work stress.

Create a list of tasks that you need to work on and then prioritize the hardest work in the early hours of office.

Happy work environment

Restrain yourself from any kind of conflicts, any conflict with the co-worker, boss, or any other guy may lead to unrest in the brain that actually doesn’t allow you to concentrate on the work.

Don’t care about what people are saying to you, focus on maintaining the calmness and treat everyone with a smile.

Another great way to have a happy work environment is to have a good social life with colleagues, this will strengthen the bond between your teammates and will lead to higher productivity and lower stress.

Be comfortable

Dump your outfit if they are not comfortable enough, its very essential to smell good and stay comfortable while you are working.

Invest in some high-quality fabrics that can make you feel fresh all day.

Avoid multi-tasking

Trying to multitask reduces productivity and increases stress levels. Pledge not to do the multitasking, unless you are working as firefighter or police or army personnel.

Meditate

Meditate plays important role in moderating the stress levels, it will provide you the much-required peacetime. Not sure how to meditate? Join a workshop or class where you can explore the benefits of meditation.

Eat Good

What you consume plays important role in how you feel, restrict the consumption of fried or processed food.

Dilemmas of dating for the health-conscious individual

When it comes to planning a first date with a prospective partner it is often a decision that comes down to picking between booking a place at an expensive restaurant, going to a bar or taking them to dinner and to see a romantic movie at the local cinema.

These choices are all great but the big issue for a healthy-eating or diet-conscious individual is that most of these experiences result in an unhealthy eating experience. Going to the town’s most expensive restaurant will often deliver food laden in calories. Attending a bar or pub will result generally in the consumption of a fair few drinks and that is never good for the waistline whilst heading to the cinema normally results in sharing a family size bucket of popcorn.

So, what are dating options do you have if you are keen to impress but not looking to compromise your diet or lifestyle, below are two things I think you can consider:

Cook at home

Let’s be honest, the aim of a first date should be to spend as much time getting to know the other person as humanly possible. By offering to cook them a dinner at your home, the benefits are three-fold. Firstly, you will be able to spend time conversing without interruption. Your focus will be entirely on listening without distraction and your eye contact will be great which will leave a lasting impression. Secondly, by showing you can cook a meal you will earn instant brownie points. Who doesn’t like a man or woman who can cook? Finally, by cooking at home you can control what goes into the food and limit calories. You can make the meal as healthy or unhealthy as you wish, it is all up to you!

Go for a date outside

As society has continued to evolve into a more health-conscious entity, people are constantly searching for more outdoor date ideas in order to impress but also provide their body with some fresh air and sun. There are companies out there that provide fitness dates for couples where you can do a workout, get a boost in energy whilst at the same time bonding and getting to know the other person better. If that sounds too intense, maybe just suggest going for a long walk through downtown, you can burn some calories, chat for hours uninterrupted and stop somewhere to rest your weary legs and down a well-earned meal…guilt-free!

What do you think of these ideas? Do you have other suggestions for the healthy individual to consider when trying to impress a date but not add pounds to their waistline?
