First on how to cope with stress at work, identify where the majority of your stress originates. This may seem like an easy task. Nonetheless, try to be honest with yourself. Sometimes stressors arise internally rather than externally. Additionally, you can aggrevate them with unhealthy coping habits.
Think back to a time when you felt stressed or overwhelmed. Then, ask yourself how you handled the situation. For example, if you find that you handled the situation by procrastinating, you most likely aggravated the stressor. Make a list of your key stressors and identify any unhealthy ways you coped as well as the outcome. Sometimes it can be difficult determining if the way you handled the situation had an impact on the outcome. Therefore, list the outcome of the situation to see if how you coped had any impact. We can avoid numerous stressors if we take the time to reflect on how we can better handle them.
