#019 - 5 Tips for Dealing with Stress
Mar 23, 2021
Julian Sequeira & Bob Belderbos

Stress comes from everywhere these days. It's become such a constant part of all of our lives and if we don't know how to acknowledge and deal with it, it can lead to all sorts of problems.

In this episode we share 5 Tips on how we deal with stress:

  1. Take a step back and remove yourself from the situation. This is a tip we learned from the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.
  2. Use gratefulness to better handle "negative" feedback.
  3. Learn to say no to protect your time and ensure you don't get overloaded with busy work. More on this in PyBites Podcast Episode 12.
  4. "Take Weekends Off". Whatever your schedule happens to be, find dedicated time to take off. Guilt free relaxation time is 100% necessary for dealing with and reducing stress levels.
  5. Analyse your situation and find something you can control. We give an example here of how we took control of our health with calorie counting. The same rule applies to finances - you control the budget!

What it all comes down to is mindset and productivity. We've distilled all of this and much more in our very own "Practical Productivity with PyBites" course. 

The framework and practical examples we have in place will get you back on track to achieving your goals and reduce your stress in the process.
