4 BOUNDARIES YOUR BRAIN NEEDS TO AVOID OVERWHELM



Pinterest


Ever wonder where the day went? It’s not uncommon to reach the late afternoon, and marvel at why you didn’t gain more traction on your to-do list. That’s because the work style most of us use is reactive, making us easily overwhelmed with everything we still have to do.


However, it’s possible to manage our thoughts so we’re not just reacting in panic mode all day long. Setting these four boundaries will help you work in a more sustainable way.



ATTENTION MANAGEMENT 
To get anything done during the workday with focused attention, you need tap into your working memory. The more attention you have, the longer you're able to remember what you’re doing and the faster you'll get it done. To regain your attention, calm your mind. One way to do this is by counting backward from 100 to zero.



INTERRUPTION MANAGEMENT
In order to have more attention, it’s important to set the terms of engagement with your devices. Disruptions erode your impulse control, and interruptions make anything you do seem more difficult and aggravating than it is.






  Coping with stress at work
  Working hard should not be confused with overworking at the expense of relationships and physical health. Workplace stressors include workloads, lack of social support, and conflicting demands or unclear performance expectations.






"BARKING" MANAGEMENT
Another boundary your brain needs is the ability to let things go in order to return to work. This is called “barking” management, as it mimics a dog that can't let go of barking at a nuisance. Hanging onto stress is damaging. Let go of the little things - and even the big things - when you need to, so you can get your focus back. 



REFUELING MANAGEMENT 
Sticking to the previous three boundaries requires giving your brain a break so it can rest and reset. The brain needs daily, weekend, and vacation resets. Studies show that productivity goes up after 10-minute breaks, 20-minute breaks, and dramatically after a vacation. Recreation and relaxation also allow you to put away whatever you’ve been thinking about over and over and recover. If you don’t, you’ll come back to work the next day with stress still there.
