One of the fastest tracks to stress and burnout is to work too hard for too long, ignoring your needs. In order to do your best at work, you need to take care of yourself physically, mentally, and emotionally. Make sure to:
- get enough rest
- eat a healthy, low fat diet—don’t skip meals to make a deadline
- get moderate exercise on most days
- make time for family and friends—don’t neglect your interests
Some conflicts with colleagues can be nipped in the bud by addressing them head-on—in other words, by being more assertive. If someone is doing something that bothers you and affects your ability to do your job, speak up about it. If you don’t feel comfortable talking to the person directly, consider asking your supervisor for support. Assertive communication can help manage stress, boost self-esteem, and earn others’ respect.
