The past few weeks we have been discussing Facebook advertising and no doubt your head is spinning with ideas right now. Perfect! that’s exactly what I was hoping for to be honest with you. I want to spark that creative part of your brain into overdrive, and hopefully that has taken place the last few weeks. This week I want to focus more on how to reduce your stress level. It’s obvious that no matter what business you are currently running (or starting up) that with business comes stress. It’s just something I have learned to deal with over the last six years or so because I know it’s coming no matter what I do. My technique for reducing my stress level is something that I personally think can and will help everyone.
Typically in business your stress comes from having to many things on your plate and just simply not being organized. It’s hard when you have 15 things to do and they are all running through your mind at one time. You’re trying not to forget anything while attempting to get things on the list done at the same time. This is a formula for disaster and stress. Let me show you so you can visualize here…
TRYING TO REMEMBER YOUR LONG LIST OF THINGS TO DO + ALL RUNNING THROUGH YOUR MIND + ATTEMPTING TO COMPLETE = MASSIVE FRUSTRATION = MASSIVE STRESS
Get it? Now here is what I do that drastically reduces all this stress. I simply write everything on a notebook. I know I know “anthony that’s just silly” or “uhh to simple I am leaving this blog” ok fine your opinion DOES count, but honestly what do you have to lose by trying this? When you write things down it changes the way your brain processes everything associated with what you wrote down. Just simply knowing everything is written down nicely on a notepad clears the mind and eliminates part 1 of this equation (the all running through your mind part). If you can eliminate parts of this equation you can eliminate some of the stresses. You no longer have to try to remember, you no longer have to keep these things on your mind AND if you check things off your list you can visually see when you “complete” things on the list. This alone gives you a sense of accomplishment and therefore reduces your stress level.
Try it out for me ok….. bet it works!
