Stress doesn’t just weaken our immune system and makes us more predisposed to illnesses, but also to making mistakes.
In your business mistakes can have severe consequences. Yes, we all are human beings and we will be forgiven for making the one or the other mistake. However, we should avoid making them in the first place as much as possible.
When we are stressed, overworked and tired this becomes more and more difficult. So we shouldn’t let it get this far.
Sometimes stress is unavoidable. That’s why it’s important to learn how to deal with stress. When you notice that this tight and tense sensation overcomes you, pause for a moment.
