Govind Vaghashia Overcoming Stress As A Leader

Holding a leadership position brings a great deal of responsibility and this could cause you to feel a lot of stress. If left unchecked, relentless tension and anxiety can yield poor health and might threaten your ability to properly manage your team. Fortunately, however, stress may be alleviated or overcome by using the suggestions below:

Gauge The Physical And Mental Impact Stress Yields

Everyone responds to stress in a different way. Some people can take more than others. That said, understanding the physical and mental impact tension causes will help you determine the severity of your stress and help you decide how to handle it.

Engage In Physical Activity

Many healthcare professionals agree that exercise is amongst the most productive stress-alleviating methods you can partake in. Physical activity enables the body to counteract the systemic impact increased tension has on the body.

Identify Particular Stressors

Stress is often used as a generic term to describe the sources of tension people face on a regular basis. That said, identifying specific stressors may help tension-laden individuals pinpoint the exact origins of their anxiety. Once these issues are identified, they can either be eliminated or dealt with in a more productive manner.

Muster The Courage To Say No

No is the easiest word to pronounce. However, for many people, especially those holding leadership roles, it is the hardest word to actually say. While many managers and executives feel the desire to wear many hats and oversee many happenings, such behavior can, in truth, cause too great a demand of their time and energy. Therefore, learning to say no once in a while can go a long way towards significantly reducing one’s tension levels.
