How Stuart Lowered His Stress and Increased His Focus
Last year I was dealing with a lot of stress in and out of work, so I decided to enroll the stress management program through Interactive Health. I learned practical ways to manage my stress that I could implement in everyday life.
One of the most important things I learned was to set healthy boundaries with my co-workers, so I didn’t inadvertently end up doing their job AND mine. In practicing what I learned, I noticed that I didn’t feel so overwhelmed in trying to get my work done. As a result, my energy wasn’t depleted by the end of the day and my focus was much better than before.
I also learned the importance of doing one task at a time and how to slow my mind down when it started to race with all my ‘have to dos’ through breath work. By repeating these exercises whenever I got stressed, I got into the habit of worrying less and doing more productive things with my time.
After finishing the stress management program, I feel like I’m a better employee and a happier person because I’m able to handle whatever tasks come my way and be focused while doing them. While there are times when I still feel like my stress levels get a little too high, it’s easy for me to use my breathing techniques to calm down, refocus, and keep moving forward.
