Stress and business are two bosom friends, walking hand in hand through life.
If your activity is related to presentations, negotiations, meetings, contracts and contracts (not to mention dismissals and receptions), it is important to learn how to get rid of his majesty stress. Rest assured: he won’t like it. He is used to go after the business on the heels, but you will achieve your goal and will live in harmony with your nerve cells and an even heartbeat. It is only necessary to master some psychological tricks that help in the fight against stress.
The ability to control oneself is very important. If you undergo systematic attacks of stress (and you undergo them, if your activity is a business), then sooner or later your nerves may let you down. You will fall and tell the other person everything you think about him. And lose a customer. Or a lucrative contract or work.
Let’s get acquainted with the techniques that are designed to separate bosom friends – stress and business.
1. Change of activity
If you are used to working, as they say, with your head, it will be very useful for you to go to the gym. Physical effort burns adrenaline. But it is not always possible to break into the fitness club in the middle of the day. In this case, it will be enough to water the flowers, move the chairs, take a quick step along the corridor. It is important to switch from one activity to another whenever you feel that stress returns. If stress caught you on the bus – get off at the nearest stop and walk for 10-15 minutes. If at home – do free exercises.
Do you want to express to the boss or the client everything that you think about him, resorting to the most picturesque allegories and metaphors? So do it! Only mentally. Imagine him sitting in front of you in a Shotlad skirt. And even better: let him sit in front of you in this skirt on the toilet. Imagination is limitless. Try it – and you will immediately feel how stress shrinks, decreases and retreats.
3. Drawing Lesson
Take colored pencils or felt-tip pens and draw on a piece of paper something that bothers you or annoys you. Do not worry if you do not have the talent of the artist: you do not show anyone your creation. Try to convey maximum emotion in your drawing: think about what makes you angry and imagine this as a dragon, for example. Maybe you will draw your leader in the guise of a jellyfish-gorgon – great! When the drawing is ready – consider it very carefully, and then tear it up, enjoying the bang of the paper and imagining that your experiences and tensions are “torn” with it.
4. My castle
This technique is one of the ways of visualization. Do the following: sit in a comfortable chair, relax, close your eyes and draw a place where you feel protected, feel safe. For example, you may find yourself in a stone castle, surrounded by a moat. In this place it is always quiet and comfortable for you. Save this picture in your head. Dissolve in calm. And mentally go back there whenever you feel the approach of stress.
Faced with a conflict situation, always think about the reasons for its occurrence. What lesson did you get? What kind of experience? Can you use it in the future? Can you avoid repeating this situation? This will help you avoid unnecessary worries and negative emotions, because you will know how to get out of a stressful situation. Practice more frequently in applying the techniques described in this article. Then you will be able to embroil this inseparable couple: business and stress, and at the same time relieve tension.
