5. Delegate The Tasks That Drain Your Energy
Too many of us feel stressed at our jobs because working on certain projects or with certain people really grind our gears. Abrasive work can wear you down over time and lead to a sincere unhappiness. Stress hormones and negative chemicals in the body accumulate over time so your unhappiness becomes a new normal and can lead to other health problems as well.
Your mood, however, can vastly improve once you remove the toxic stimulants from your daily routine. Delegate or eliminate as many energy-zapping aspects from your life as you can, so you're only surrounded by an energy-positive environment.
Take Action: Take out a notepad and write out 5 aspects of your job that raise your blood pressure and steal your energy. Then work your way through the list line by line to identify specific ways in which you can mitigate each stressor. Implement the ideas on your list, and drastically improve your situation as a result.
6. Change Careers
Sometimes the challenges in your work are so inescapable that your best option is to move on to a new job altogether. I work with clients each week who face toxic work environments, workplace inequality, discrimination, and more. For these folks, moving to a new employer drastically improves their livelihood and well being.
If changing to a new employer feels like the right move for you, I encourage you to schedule a free 15-minute conversation with me. In 15 minutes I can give you a massive amount of career strategy that will save you countless hours during your transition. I live and breathe this stuff every day, and my tactics improve with each client I coach. I will explain how you can leverage several sites on the internet to simplify your application process and boost your odds of earning interviews, and as a former recruiter, I can quickly summarize the methods that helped job candidates earn job offers. Of course, I cover these topics in depth in my online courses, but the free conversation is probably the best place to get started.
Take Action: Schedule a free conversation with me to help you decide whether changing jobs is the right direction for you, and let me share several tips that can significantly reduce the stress of the whole process.
As you work each of these items into your daily routine you will create a cycle that brings a continuous stream of energy into your life.
