Eight tips to reduce stress
1. Get support from others.
Speak to your support network at home and at the office about what's affecting you, and how you're feeling. Often, just telling someone about the problem will help.
2. Clear your desk.
Re-organise your desk or de-clutter your office. It will give you a sense of achievement and control, and help you work more effectively. Put one or two personal items, such as a photo or an inspirational message on your desk. These will symbolise what's important to you when work gets tough.
3. Review your diet and exercise regime.
Eat a healthy, balanced diet and exercise regularly to help cope with stress.
4. Get creative.
Being creative helps reduce feelings of stress and anxiety.

5. Relax more.
Use relaxation or breathing techniques at the office or during lunch breaks.

Focus on a desired positive outcome; this will increase the chances of it happening.
Don't harp on the negative or what could go wrong, think of the goal you're trying to achieve and the rewards and feeling of accomplishment if you manage to achieve it.
8. Manage your time
Define and prioritise your objectives. What do I want to achieve at work and in my current job? Am I chasing the next level position or do I want to be the best in what I'm doing now?
Divide your workload into three categories and plan your day/week accordingly. Make time to address all three areas in a week.
