Master Stress with Humor
It’s no joke! Is it more than a coincidence that April is Stress Awareness Month as well as National Humor Month? We don’t think so!
In fact, research shows that adding humor to your day has many positive benefits including decreasing stress, increasing mindfulness, and improving the body’s recovery capabilities. Laughter and humor have a practical use in the workplace as well, helping us learn, lead, and relate to others in a meaningful way.
Discover the many ways you can experience greater joy and incorporate humor into your life at aath.org.
Although the concept of mastering stress may sound daunting, there are proven ways to enhance our ability to effectively manage daily stressors, become more resilient in dealing with life’s challenges, increase energy and boost productivity.
Here are a few additional ways you can thrive and keep stress and overwhelm at bay:
- DELETE – Which of your daily emails can be deleted immediately?
- DO – Respond immediately only if the email is urgent or important and can be done quickly.
- DELEGATE – Can someone else deal with it?
- DEFER – Is this something I need to handle after my main priorities of the day are met?
On that note, we are thrilled to be back in-person for our WWCMA22 Annual Conference on May 5 in Needham, MA!
