Stress management and dealing with stress in general is a skill and something we all need to learn.
This will be even more apparent as we all make major adjustments to our working habits.
One of the key ideas of dealing with stressful situations and where decisions needs to be made, is to park it.
Park the problem, sleep on the difficult decision for maybe one or 2 nights and the solution will gradually come up to the surface from your subconscious.
Avoid making a quick and knee jerk decision in the first wave of having to deal with something – whether it is setting up a new routine for you and your family in the wake of major changes, or sorting out logistical new working practices – park the problem, sleep on it and your mind will be working out the way forwards in the background as you go about your day.
The results will be better than anything you think of in the first wave, and knowing you can park the problem and a good solution will come through, will put your mind to rest.
Stress management is vital… So do not stress… just park it 🙂
