One of the most common questions asked during a
job interview is about how you handle
stress. The way you cope with stress greatly affects your
performance at work. It has an effect on
your ability not only to finish your task, but your
ability to deal and coordinate with the
people around you. This is very important, as it can have a effect on the efficiency of your
group. Below is a great video about how to deal with stress at work.
Having the ability to
understand how well you handle
greatly improve how you handle your day-to-day
tasks. One way to help you understand better how well you cope
with stress is
to learn mindfulness. Mindfulness involves paying attention to what’s happening within and around you in the present
moment. It’s about being conscious, and
having the ability to accept your thoughts and
sensations. When you’re being mindful, you’ll be able to take a step back and carefully ponder on the best way to respond to a difficult
situation. This enables you to have a more positive
response, and to be able to manage anxiety and stress in the proper way.
Practicing mindfulness meditation regularly can be a
great way to improve your
mindfulness skills. There are plenty of self-help books
or online articles that you can find out there, to help you
learn the basics of meditation.
However, the best way to learn meditation is to find an
experienced meditation teacher to guide you. Mindfulness training exercises
can be easily learned when you have an experienced guide to help you.
