If you spend all day at work fretting about your kids or taking irate calls from your partner, you are far more likely to drop the ball on an important project. And even the most understanding boss will begin to have doubts over your capabilities if they keep finding you sobbing at your desk. The best way to cope is to FOCUS – put your phone on silent, do not be tempted to vent to a co-worker, and if you feel your emotions bubbling over, try some breathing techniques. The practice of being in the moment with your breathing will begin to train your brain to focus solely on the task at hand, says Dr Travis Bradberry, an emotional intelligence expert.
When you are stressed, take a few minutes to focus only on your breathing. Think about how it feels to breathe in and out. Try counting each breath in and out until you get to 20, then start again from one. You’ll be surprised by how calm you feel afterward and how much easier it is to let go of distracting thoughts that seemed to be lodged permanently inside your brain.
