5 Simple Ways High-Performing Entrepreneurs Handle Stress

Being busy during the day is a common cause of stress. It’s hard to be focused on business tasks all day. This is why entrepreneurs take it out on their subordinates and become distracted. This can lead to layoffs of employees and a deterioration in the business turnover. Let’s take a look at 5 ways an entrepreneur can deal with stress.

Delegating Tasks

You cannot do all the tasks well on your own. You will spend a lot of time and energy on this, but over time, you will be under constant stress. Don’t take on too much. Identify areas that:

  •  you do best
  •  bring you pleasure
  •  cannot be performed by anyone but you

Focus on completing only these tasks. Find qualified people to delegate the rest. Thus, you will save more energy, relieve stress, and be more productive.

If possible, delegate organizational and household issues as well: hire an assistant, call a cleaning service, and order ready-made food from a restaurant if you don’t have the time or desire to do it yourself.

Meditation and Breathing

Meditation and deep breathing techniques are scientifically proven ways to relieve stress and find harmony with yourself. Meditation has a calming effect on both the body and the mind. Thoughts become clear, and the person becomes calmer and more focused. Set aside 10-15 minutes a day for meditation and breathing practices, and you will immediately see the results.

If you are feeling a lot of stress before an important meeting or public speaking, try this technique: breath in deeply for 4 counts, then exhale slowly for 7 counts. Repeat 3-5 times. This technique will quickly reduce your stress levels and relax your body.

Marijuana

Marijuana is a psychoactive substance of the psychedelic type. This substance is widely used for relaxation, stress reduction, and other medicinal purposes. It is scientifically proven that the use of marijuana in 95% of cases reduces the symptoms of anxiety, stress, and irritability. Cannabis is also used to treat more serious disorders, such as depression.

There are many ways to consume marijuana: smoking a pipe, jamb, bong, vaping cannabis extracts, or eating edible herbs. They differ in the speed and duration of exposure, as well as the percentage of cannabinoids.

Sport

Any physical activity reduces stress levels and releases endorphins ­ hormones of joy. High-performance cardio workouts are most effective. Go for a run, go swimming or dancing, join the gym, or do spring cleaning at home. Find the physical activity you like. Exercise 3-4 times a week for an hour, and you will notice that you have become less angry with colleagues at work.

Stress-Reducing Toys

Many people need to perform certain physical actions to reduce stress, such as swinging a leg, tapping fingers on a table, or flicking a pen. However, this can be annoying to others. There are many special stress-relieving toys to help you and not harm others. For example, the clever ball from SQUEGG is a Bluetooth-enabled silicone ball. Squeeze it at different frequencies and intensities to achieve complete relaxation.
