Ideas for managing your pressure times

Standard

P-R-E-S-S-U-R-E   T-I-M-E-S!

We all go through them, so what practical things can we do when we go through these tough times:

  • Communicate with those closest to you—  find support and encouragement from others
  • Question what are the priorities at the moment – find a way to back off from the situation  and clear your head—take time to think
  • Are you in a position to delegate to others?- again, find support from others to help you,  you don’t need to go it alone
  • Do you need to just endure for a “season”? – sometimes we just need to endure because there won’t be any “quick fixes”
  • Find time to rest  – take your foot off the gas, find the time to clear your head and relax, and/or take a retreat, we were never meant to go 24/7/365
  • Pray – unfortunately for many, prayer is a “last resort”, but it actually be a part of our life all the time. God is so willing to help, if we just ask
  • Question to learn “are you responsible for the pressure?” – pressure times can offer a valuable time to learn. Why has this situation happened?  What are some different ways to work through the tough time? How could I have handled things differently? Who or where can I turn to for advice on how to handle situations like this in the future?
