How To NOT Turn Pressure Into Stress

We experience pressure in our daily lives – pressure from school, pressure from work, and even pressure from our friends and families. It is not something that we can live without. No can do! Although of course, from time to time, we would wish that we can. So what do we do? How does one handle pressure and manage stress? Or better yet, avoid stress?

Here are some tips on how to keep it together while working under pressure. 

3 Best Practices to Prevent Pressure From Turning Into Stress

Set Your Priorities

Piled up workload and unmanaged tasks are the most common causes of pressure everyday. And not being able to properly handle the pressure may easily cause stress. Setting your priorities can help avoid your workload from piling up and will surely be the answer to your unmanaged tasks.

It is always important to prioritize. Making it a habit helps you set the rhythm of your workflow. Know what has to be done earlier, check your deadlines and prioritize the ones that are supposed to be accomplished sooner than your other tasks. Prioritizing does not only allow you to have a balance in your life and in you work, it also helps you develop time management. Once you learn how to set your priorities, you will have better control of your time and will be more prepared for the next best practice when dealing with pressure. 

Always Organize

Setting your priorities goes best with organizing things. This helps you see the clearer picture. For example, a cluttered work station adds up more time in accomplishing a task as it is very likely to happen that you will look for something that isn't actually missing, it's just buried somewhere beneath your pile of everything. It happens when everything is on one area AND NOTHING IS ORGANIZED. 

Organizing things help save time. Saving time helps lessen the chance of being under pressure. By prioritizing, you get to have a vision of your work process. By organizing, you get to have a smoother workflow. And by being able to practice both, you are one tip away from being able to handle pressure and from having a chance of winning a stress-free life. Go on, read on.

Plan Ahead and Make a Schedule

As the famous quotation widely attributed to Alan Lakein goes,

"Failing to plan is planning to fail."

Planning ahead always gives you a great advantage and leaves lesser room for pressure and failure. It also helps you foresee some issues you might encounter ahead and gives you time to come up with solutions and answers to possible questions. 

When you coming up with a plan, another good practice that should always come with it is making a schedule – when you plan, you also plan a schedule.

Make a schedule and create a time table to help you see clearer what your priorities are, how your priorities are organized, and what your game plan is.
