Many of us were familiar with the symptoms of being overworked and filling that work is related to stress and anxiety.
Is it important for us to be happy and satisfied at work?

Being busy often relate to success, especially when our business is booming. Then we are ready to jump very high with a million colorful balloons.
But, we’ve wrongly come to accept that overload is OK because being busy indicates stress. Stress can be helpful and motivate but too much and too prolonged stress can be a downward spiral. But chronic stress can be very damaging.
Stress can be motivating and helpful but no too much and no every day, because chronic stress can be extremely damaging.
Here are five tips to stop feeling busy all the time and to clean your mind:
1. Stop multitasking immediately
Multitasking may seem efficient on the surface, but actually, takes more time in the end and involve more mistakes. Some research shows that shifting between tasks can cost as much as 40% of your productive time.
It’s better to use the 80/20 rule – identify the 20% of your tasks that are really effective and do them one at a time. Another good advice is to always start with the most important task first.
2. Never dive straight into work
Many people do the same thing when they turn off morning alarm and wake up. Guess what? Check their email, missed phone calls. Take a deep breath several times, or do 15 minutes meditation. Also, you can do some Yoga before you start your working day.
Don’t procrastinate yesterday’s challenges and tasks, but throwing yourself into work immediately can harm your long-term productivity.
3. Eliminate the word „busy“ from your vocabulary
Many kinds of research on the psychological aspects of language use explained that the words you use have more power than you think.
What we say „busy“ we don’t recognize the good things and we don’t fill motivation. When we stop describing our lives as „busy“, we can feel less stress.
4. Timely stress management
It’s very important to have „my time“ to:
- get a good night’s rest,
- go to the gym or
- take a vacation.
All of the above are the parts of your job and your life and put it on your agenda as well as your job tasks. We are more productive when we work from a happy state of mind.
5. If you’re the manager or boss redundant business isn’t a good business model.
The perception that hard work is the only way to rise in a company keeps employees working themselves into illness. Set priorities for all work so your employees can schedule tasks over a reasonable period of time.
We live in a world where we have more and more to do with less time. We’re less able to stand back and think.
When you don’t allow them time to slow down, you not only risk your health but also your business.
