How to deal with stress at work?



Get Organized
If you've got no system to help you memorize or prioritize, you're in trouble. The mind is not the most efficient engine when it comes to recalling a myriad of competing tasks. so note them down and assign each a priority. Get sorted out now!

Limit Interruptions
Taking personal calls at work? This is fine occasionally, but don't get into big catch-ups:it will take you that much longer to get back into the zone. Politely explain to friends or family that you're working and will return their call that evening, or on the weekend.

Drink Up
Keeping the brain hydrated makes it easier for your grey matter synapses to transmit information. If you feel yourself getting sluggish upstairs. remember to drink at least 1.5 liters of water a day.

Reach For The Fish
Similarly, fish oil helps lubricate the brain and encourage mental clarity. Consuming l000mg of fish oil a day should assist you in staying on the ball. 

B Vitamins 
B Vitamins assist the body to handle stress by providing support to the adrenal glands. These are best taken in the morning so as not to keep you buzzing at night when you're trying to wind down.

Talk It Over
Avoid excessive hours and say 'no' to prevent burning out at work. Know your limits and if work becomes overwhelming, speak up or delegate your tasks. You can also opt for a few days off to recharge.
