Here is some good news and some bad news: The bad news is that we can’t avoid stress. The good news is that we can manage it. Dr. Amora, a stress-management expert, believes that salespeople who manage their stress better than others will sell more.
Watch this six-minute interview and compare your current stress-management techniques with Dr. Amora’s practical tips:
1. Manage all five health areas: psychological, physical, social, spiritual, and environmental health.
2. Embrace the idea that you can grow from stress. This is the first step toward successful stress management.
3. A healthy attitude toward your challenges has a positive effect on your performance.
4. Accept the scientific fact that physical exercise will reduce the effects of stress on your body.
5. Develop a health plan that is in line with your goal for managing stress.
6. Choose a routine that you can enjoy for a long period of time, such as walking, tennis, squash, basketball, soccer, or swimming.
7. Create a plan for managing your nutrition. Avoid the temptation to resort to sugar or fat to manage stress. Plan for more but smaller meals each day to maintain a peak performance level.
8. Plan for five servings of fruits and vegetables each day.
9. Boost your immune system with antioxidants such as dark chocolate, soy, or a glass of red wine.
10. Vitamin B supplements can help manage stress.
11. Reduce your social connections with people who negatively influence your health habits. If your friends like to eat inexpensive, greasy foods, meet them at a Starbucks, not over dinner.
12. See more friends who evoke good feelings in you. Don’t attempt to reform negative people – they only increase your stress and frustration.
