How can you combat work stress to ENJOY your life and work?
✔︎ Learn to say no. Know and understand your own priorities in both your work and personal life. When you say no to something, you are saying yes to something else.
✔︎ Upskill. Own your own professional development as an eager student to add to your skill set.
✔︎ Own your life (and work) as a journey. There is always time to pivot or recalibrate your career trajectory.
✔︎ Laugh! Find humor in small things.
✔︎ Do something you love. Whether during work or personal time, make time to do what you enjoy. Running? Re-decorating? Reading? Just do it!
