STRESS MANAGEMENT

Hello Guys,

As you all known, I am by name Ismail Ibrahim Muhammad, a Techie Youth student, from Yola-North (Jimeta), Nigeria.

Our today's Topic is very much interested and I will like to share with you what I learned at Techie Youth on STRESS MANAGEMENT.

First of all, let me explain or break down the word "Stress".

Stress is a pressure or tension exerted on a material object. 

Stress is a feeling of emotional or physical tension. It can come from any event or thought that makes you feel frustrated, angry, or nervous.

Stress is your body's reaction to a challenge or demand. In short bursts, stress can be positive, such as when it helps you avoid danger or meet a deadline.

While Stress Management: Effective stress management helps you break the hold stress has on your life, so you can be happier, healthier, and more productive.

How to Manage Stress Include:

Relaxation techniques, times management skills, counseling or group therapy, exercise, and maintaining an overall healthy lifestyle.

And I understood that you will only be angry when you choose to do so, as a human being you have to learn how to overcome your anger (control). As you just gave us an example when someone or something is stimulating your feelings of anger, stop whatever you are doing immediately, go look in the mirror or into your selfie-camera and smile as wide of a smile as you can make. Hold that smile for at least 10-seconds while looking at yourself, by doing so you can control your anger.

And I will use what I learned to control my anger anywhere and also advice or teach younger ones on how to overcome this problem.

This is all what I can say on Stress Management, and I will like to use this opportunity to appreciate your humanitarian aid in our Local Government Area, Regions and Country (Rural and Urban Areas).

My regards to the Founder of Techie Youth and the rest of workers.

How to successfully work a remote job

My name is Ismail Ibrahim Muhammad, a Techie Youth Student, from Yola-North, Nigeria..

Today, am going to share a key or ways on how to "Successfully Work a Remote Job" on my own understanding and also using simple English words.

Lets get into my world of understanding.

Every remote worker faces unique challenges, from distractions that are unusually hard to avoid to increasingly complex responsibilities at home that make it challenging to find a healthy work-life balance. The good news? The amazing benefits of remote work make the effort you put into overcoming any works from a home obstacles more than worth your time.

The particular aspects of remote work mean that you’ll have to do some planning ahead to work from home successfully. By developing a few good habits and following some key suggestions, you can work through any works from a home challenges that come your way. 

How to be a Good Remote Workers Work from Home:

1. Communicate Proactively:

When you’re not in the same office as your boss and teammates, you need to take your communication skills to the next level. Use email, phone calls, video calls, online chat software, and whatever other tools you have at your disposal. Ask when and how people want to hear from you, and follow those preferences.

2. Clarify Expectations

Clarifying expectations starts by having frequent and transparent conversations with your boss and coworkers, making sure you know what they expect you to accomplish and when.

3. Set Office Hours and Stick to Them

Decide what your regular work hours will be and inform your boss and colleagues of your schedule. Then do all you can to follow it. Your coworkers need to know when you’ll be available for work tasks and meetings, and when you’re clocked out and on personal time.

4. Dress for the Job

As tempting as it may be, resist the urge to stay in your PJs all day long and dress for work every day. Not only will you want to look professional on video meetings, but getting dressed in the morning puts your brain in “work” mode.

5. Structure your days

To work from home successfully, you’ll need to plan out and structure your days so the hours don’t get away from you. Create to-do lists, set goals, and come up with a daily schedule, complete with breaks and times when you’ll be able to focus on deep work. 

6. Create dedicated Office Space

When you set up a home office space that is specifically for your work and nothing else, you’ll inevitably have fewer distractions. 

7. Use Task Lists and Time Management Tools

With no manager hovering over your shoulder asking for updates, you may find it easy to get distracted or spend too long on a particular task or project.

8. Take Breaks

Without the rhythm of an office around you, it’s easy to get in a groove and forget to take a lunch break or stretch your legs with a quick walk.

9. Avoid personal tasks

To be a good remote employee, it’s essential to not let household to-dos take over your schedule. Sure, throwing in a load of laundry during a work break is fine, but make sure you don’t let miscellaneous household tasks dictate your workday. Not only will they ultimately extend your day past your regular work hours, but the constant interruptions will impede your productivity and performance.

10. Exercise Regularly

Whether you go for a run or walk during your lunch break or schedule an online yoga session to end your workday, keeping a regular exercise routine will help you combat the sedentary lifestyle that remote work can lead to.

11. Create a strong support system

Working remotely can lead to loneliness and isolation, but staying connected while working from home helps keep these feelings at bay. 

12. Plan Occasion in a person meetings with team members

While online communication tools will help you build strong virtual bonds, it’s hard to replace face-to-face conversations. Meeting with your coworkers and manager in person won’t always be possible (like during a pandemic). 

This is all what I can say today, but don't worry tomorrow is another day.

Thank you for reading my idea.
