Work Life Changes to Make to Improve Your Mental Health

Working hard for something we don't care about is called stress: Working hard for something we love is called passion.”  ― Simon Sinek

Everyone needs to work to earn a living and buy the things they want in life. Unfortunately as much as you love your career, there are always when you just feel overwhelmed and stress. Therefore, for those who want to have some control over their job and still have happiness can take a look at the ways below.

1. Don’t beat yourself up

When things don’t go as planned, don’t focus on the negative part of it. Learn from mistakes and move on. Do not dwell on it and take note of what you can do to improve yourself. Beating yourself up will only make you stress and motivation level worst. Tuck in your shirt and stand strong!

2. Celebrate Success

A win is a win. When things go well, congratulate yourself and your team by celebrating it with those around you. This is a reward for you and the team after all the hard work. It will also boost your happiness and confidence level at work.

3. Don’t take yourself too seriously

Everybody is human – having some humility will help to stop you fretting over the little things and endear yourself to others. Do not let yourself be too serious at work and take some time to smile to others around you.

4. Prioritize Tasks

It is easy to stay busy with urgent tasks that need your attention. However, prioritize and make sure you get the important things done first followed by the least. Write it down on your notebook so you can easily keep track from there and cross it off your list once done. Learn to say ‘NO’ to impossible requests when you have too many things on your plate.
