Sleep Better
One of the key ways stress affects our health is through sleep loss. Take at least 8 hours sleep and do not wake late night like an owl.

Sometimes it’s okay to wake up late nights but don’t make it habit. Establish a nightly routine so you get to sleep at a decent hour and feel energized in the morning.

 Bring Snacks

Bring a spill-proof coffee cup filled with your favorite brew to the office, and have a bag of non-perishable snacks on hand (try protein bars, dried fruit and nuts, juice boxes, or pretzels).

Going for more than a few hours without a snack can cause your blood sugar levels to drop, and you’ll end up exacerbating stress.

This way, even if you should work through back-to-back meetings, you’ll be able to grab some energy. Take tea, coffee to give few minutes break and get back on work with energy.

Give Yourself Some Credit

Most of us don’t take enough time to praise ourselves for doing things well. So, when you’ve completed an interim or long-term goal, tell yourself that a good job you’ve done.

You’ll get a burst of confidence that will go a long way towards helping you maintain your cool amid the workplace madness.
