Jacquie Damgaard from ExecuCare is here to share her advice to relieve stress about work.
The number one issue I hear from my clients is, “I just don’t have enough hours in the day to get everything done at work.”
Why are so many people stressed by their workload?
Most people have never learned how to organize their time and fulfill their most important goals. Instead, they get caught up in a lot of activities that seem urgent and important at the time, but actually should be delegated to someone else or eliminated.
How can people reduce work stress?
When feeling overwhelmed, many people think, “If I just work harder and put in more hours right now, then it will all get better soon.” This is usually not true. A much better option is to immediately learn some new habits around how you choose to direct activities during the day.
What phrase or quote can help people put their work into perspective?
The classic, “Work smarter, not harder.”
