7 of 10 Americans who die each year die of a preventable chronic disease such as heart disease diabetes and many forms of cancer. Office of the Surgeon General
WHAT DOES THIS ADD UP TO? 75% of all chronic disease is lifestyle related Are direct result of stress (mind and body) 75% of stress is self induced!
WHAT YOU CAN CONTROL TO REDUCE STRESS When you put yourself and your health first, you begin to reduce your stress
IN THE WORKPLACE: THE 3P’S OF STRESS Perfectionism Procrastination Complaining
PERFECTIONISM Perfectionism is great when it comes to issues related to safety.
PERFECTIONISM “CURE” Not an easy fix, has to fit you… 1. identify that you have this pattern and notice if it is contributing to your stress 2. Decide if you like this stress/does it help, or is it in the way 3. Find out more: what is the expectation of the receiver of your project. 4. Adjust your “standards” for the project at hand
PROCRASTINATION Delaying the start of something important. = rush to complete a project + irritation from team mates who need to meet your expectations = STRESS for ALL
PROCRASTINATION “CURE” Cause 1.Lack of information 2.Lack of interest 3.Lack of confidence
PROCRASTINATION “CURE” Go do 30 minutes of ‘research” to get you going. Maybe do a schedule, or a mind map to get your thinking. Start anyway. Even in exercising, 10 minutes can get you to 20- 40 minutes. But avoiding it get’s you nowhere. Get help. If you are unsure, ask a friend or colleague to help you.
COMPLAINING We all have to vent sometimes, but some vent all the time Complaining spread the ‘germ” of stress. you are not happy, you interrupt my day to tell me about it, now I get caught up in your negative state, and drop down to your angry level…. now I need to get back to a productive level to restart my day.
COMPLAINING CURE Ask for 5 minutes of venting time and then STOP Never solve a problem by complaining. Go right to the productive side of the conversation what can you do about it…..
REDUCE STRESS IN OTHERS Stop Perfecting Procrastinating Complaining Avoid stress words: Have toShouldMust
REDUCING STRESS IN OTHERS If you are nervous….your team is nervous As leaders, when you are calm, you make others calm.
