The movie ‘Horrible Bosses’ is probably the best satire to describe how some superiors behave inside an office. Besides being intolerable, inconsiderate and inhuman, some bosses are just too much - of everything, but you stick it out knowing that the job market might be too harsh for someone like you, or you don't want to leave a bad impression on anyone because this is your first job. Whatever your reason is, stress is definitely after you and you’re drowning in it and as each workday goes by, your threshold for stress is getting tested more and more as the levels of stress rise to unimaginable proportions. So what do you do? Do you throw in the towel and give up? Do you raise your hands up high and wait for a miracle to happen? Or do you try to re-assess the situation and look for ways on how to work around it, assuming that you have no other option?
If you’re one of those guys who believe that work isn’t your life, think again, it is, you just don't want to admit it. So the first thing you need to do is accept the fact that without your work, you are nothing and what’s worse is that if you’re single and trying to get laid, being a charity case is definitely not your ticket to sex. Not even the gorgeous London escorts would dare cross your path if they knew you were too broke to even get a cup of coffee!
So here are some stress-busting tips to keep you at your desk and away from the streets.
Be organised. Yes, organisation is the most important key to success, and as they say, the most valuable lesson a man can ever learn. A man’s world is full of pressure and organisation will save you a lot of time, effort and energy, and organization can be as simple as fixing the clutter right in front of you.
Speaking of unbreakable habits, maybe it’s time to let go of your caffeine diet. Caffeine offers liquid stress, which boosts your adrenaline, and suppresses the natural relaxants in your brain. Getting rid of coffee in your everyday diet is one good way of making sure that you state of mind is healthy and so is your bank balance.
While most men spend most of their time working and working out, it may not have occurred to them the value of taking multi-vitamins. Contrary to popular belief, taking vitamins especially Vitamin B and C will ensure you a stress-free workday. Start your day by drinking these essential vitamins and you will never have to complain about a headache ever again.
Perhaps the most enviable way of dealing with stress is by getting distracted every once in a while. Distractions should have a space in your life. A laugh or two every 5 minutes of your day won’t hurt you. Give yourself a breather, don’t take yourself too seriously. The most successful men acknowledge the limits of their capabilities and are never afraid to laugh at their mistakes.
