When going through a stressful business time, it is very useful to stay your work routine.
Keep working, stay with your schedule, try to find new opportunities, talk with your family, friends and your other business peers.
Keeping a good spirit helps, while trying to use your resources wisely and find new ways to create income. Hope for the best!

I remind myself of how far I have come. Rehearsing previous wins and remembering obstacles which have been overcome are helpful as well.
Always, always, light a candle. It’s a lot like business. The flame is you. The wax is just everything else…fears, failures, successes…it’s the journey. You just keep lighting that flame and keep burning.26 Replies

I usually try to do motivational readings and personal growth, trust in myself and that everything will go well and above all organize my time on a regular basis and enjoy your free time and do not forget to rest and be distracted that helps a lot.26 Replies

Take a step back for a moment. Look for the positive outcome in one thing, and let that be your spark to motivate you to continue. Spend time reading, and researching, and use your creativity to create to opportunities and make what you are doing fun again.26 Replies

I think the best thing to do is to do some activity among all the members in which they share either a coffee or a tea while listening to music.26 Replies

Many times there are times when work gets complicated, we get stressed, we get anxious, and we feel pressured by the time and demands that fall on our shoulders.
When these moments come, what I try to do is to stop for 5 minutes every 2 hours, to breathe, clear my mind and allow the tensions in my body to be released. In this way I can recharge energies and mentally reconnect with the goals and purposes that keep my motivation going and complete all my tasks.26 Replies

Honestly I am a list person. If it wasn’t for teamwork projects I think I would go a little crazy. When business gets stressful lists make me sane and keep me on track.26 Replies

continue working but creating short-term objectives to see more performance and thus obtain the achievements to keep moving forward. Also creating as a table of performance and reward in the workplace, help as incentive and motivation to achieve objectives26 Replies

Keep moving forward! Stress can feel like quicksand if you stay there too long, so you have to start each day with something new to keep yourself moving forward. Maybe it’s a new podcast, getting out of the office and going to a networking event, maybe it’s spending more time with employees…whatever it is, find something new to you. This mental break can help you see your business differently…clearing your mind and maybe even finding more solutions.26 Replies

Stressful business times for me are generally caused by overlapping deadlines. The key is to prioritize which projects must be done vs which ones can actually be put off a day. Hard deadlines vs soft deadlines. 90% of the time that solves the problem.26 Replies
