PLANS & PRICING
Feeling overwhelmed at work is not good for you, or your organization. As an employee, when you are overwhelmed, your productivity and efficiency decreases and the excessive stress also puts you at risk to several health related concerns. Here are some ways you can deal with feeling overwhelmed-
Talk it out- talking about your feelings to your colleagues or even your boss may help you feel better. It will feel like a weight off of your shoulders and maybe put some things into perspective as well. If your workload is unmanageable, talk to your supervisor or introspect and see what can be delegated.
Prioritize and Plan- Prioritize tasks on your to do list and learn how to say no when your workload is overwhelming. Take a few minutes out of your day to plan how to tackle the tasks and how much time each of them need. This will prevent you from jumping from one task to another and ultimately not achieving much.
Take breaks- sometimes, it's the four walls of the office that can be overwhelming. Remember to take breaks away from your desk. Go for a short walk and get some fresh air. Try taking your wok to a different location- a park bench or your favourite coffee shop and enjoy a change of scenery.
Sleep- this may seem counterintuitive but getting a full night’s sleep does wonders for your mental and physical health. Make sure to be well rested before you attack your work the next day to see if that helps you feel better.
