Experiencing bustle and stress is something that almost every small company owner has gone through. With the holiday season coming and COVID-19 limitations still in effect, this might be one of the most stressful times for small business owners.
According to our research*, 71% of small company owners experienced workplace stress in the previous 12 months, with causes of stress ranging from managing business and personal responsibilities (26%), time demands (24%), and keeping on top of business administration (21 percent).
At the UK Domain, we’ve been working with professional performance coach Phillippa Hurrell on several materials to assist small company owners in decreasing stress, managing time, and enhancing productivity as part of a series of useful content for SMEs.
Our most recent article focuses on how you may minimize stress as a small company owner. One of these techniques is to recognize and address thinking spirals, which is the subject of our most recent infographic, which you can see below. The infographic explains what thought spirals are and offers four easy strategies to help you break free and stay focused.
In an article published by Phillippa, we also highlighted several more approaches that may assist in relieving stress in addition to thinking spirals. The essay covers everything from avoiding the worried thoughts that may ‘heckle’ you to fast advice on integrating more positive thoughts into your working day and routine to overcoming stress by processing the environment more beneficially. The complete article may be seen here.
You are spending some time reflecting on how you start your day, the ideas that go through your mind, and what tiny adjustments you might make may help you enhance your performance, attention, and, most importantly, your well-being.
