17 Strategies for Managing Stress When You Are Burning Out at Work

Although we can’t avoid stress in our lives altogether, no job is worth damaging our physical, mental, or emotional health.

Here are 17 strategies for effectively managing work-related stress that won’t break the bank and will make you happier at work!  

Take a breather if you have the urge to yell at someone or scream at work. Just slowly breathe in and breathe out three times. Let the moment pass.

Keep Breathing

Step outside and get some fresh air or walk around the block. Actually take a break during your lunch break.  Even if it’s only 5 minutes, it’s worth it. 

Take Regular Breaks

Some situations will pass, but it’s time to speak up if you are genuinely stressed out (especially if this has  been happening for a while). 

Speak Up

You can always confide in a family member or a close friend and share some of what you’re trying to sort out in your head.

Turn to Your Loved Ones

They can help you develop a plan to manage stress, find healthy outlets, and provide coping mechanisms to  improve your overall well-being.
