How To Focus At Work By Reducing Stress

Stress at work can lead to an inability to focus as I have found in the past.  If you would like to learn how to focus at work by reducing stress, then take a few minutes out to read this brilliant, and original, article by Amy Martinez. – a senior faculty member for the Centre For Creative Leadership.

How To Focus At Work By Reducing Stress

1. Manage your own resistance. Become cognizant of how much energy you expend opposing what already is. It translates into less energy to accept, adapt, and solve your challenge.

2. Give your best, but don’t get attached to the outcome. Trying to control the way things turn out will make you crazy. Instead, care enough to speak up and take action but not so much that you fall apart or blow up when a certain outcome is not achieved.

3. Stay in the present. How often do you relive the past? How much effort and energy do you give to thinking about future possibilities? Remember, right now is the only point where life is happening—and you can choose how to think and act in this present moment.

4. Be compassionate. Extend compassion to both yourself and others. When things go wrong, people start to blame each other (or themselves). But if you can soften your heart a bit, you send soothing messages to the brain—allowing it to figure a way out of messes and stresses without causing more damage.

5. Shift your view. Try to “re-frame” the situation. What other way could you look at it? What other points of view could you consider? Who could help you see this situation differently? Find them.

6. Understand your beliefs about adversity, and choose your response. The way you currently view setbacks, challenges, or adversity stems from how you have been taught to think about it. When you get clear on what you believe and where those beliefs come from, you can choose to “unlearn” them. You are in charge of your own thoughts and are empowered to respond in new ways.
