Going to work when life is hard elsewhere
The best way to manage work when life is hard elsewhere is to see it as an opportunity.
You can see this opportunity as anything you want it to be.
An opportunity to take a break.
An opportunity to spend time doing something that you like doing.
An opportunity to make a difference to other people
An opportunity to not have to think about what’s happening elsewhere
When life is hard and you have to turn up to work remember you don’t need to bring this to work.
You are the same person however you can choose how your life affects you.
Here are some tips:
Don’t succumb to the emotions of the moment
Keep your attitude positive
Speak with a friend or family member and have a vent session to help deal with what going on
Focus on the small tasks that you can complete without too much brain work
Your boss is not your therapist so you don’t need to go into the detail
It’s ok to take a break and let your boss know that things are tough and ask for some personal time.
Practice mindfulness exercises.
Be kind to yourself life can be hard sometimes
Give yourself space when you need it.
Get at least 7 hours sleep each night
Acknowledge what you are grateful for.
When life is hard and you have to turn up to work remember you don’t need to bring this to work. You are in control of your life and how you behave, you can choose how you go about your life when things are tough.
