How to Destress and Maximize Work Performance

In life, you will face moments when you’re stressed out and unable to function as you normally would. The key to overcoming this, however, is not to let the stress get to you no matter how difficult it may seem.

Motivational keynote speaker Matt Mayberry has certainly dealt with his share of stressors throughout his personal and professional life. Today, he shares his story and helps attendees overcome their obstacles through his insightful keynotes.

Here are a few tips on how you can overcome obstacles, conquer stress and perform your best at work:  


Although it may sound obvious, this step is essential in overcoming stress. It is also a step many people tend to forget when they’re under a lot of pressure. When you’re under a ton of stress is when you need to relax the most, so try your best to keep your breathing steady and your mind clear, not only at work but also in other settings you encounter in everyday life.         

Focus on the present.

You shouldn’t spend all your time worrying incessantly about future projects. We’re all human, so worrying every once in a while is a completely normal reaction to stress. However, if you spend all your time worrying about something so far in advance, you will only stress yourself out more, which can negatively impact your work performance. Instead of worrying about the future, focus on the present while doing the best you can.

Change your mindset.  

Your mindset matters more than think. A mind full of negativity and self-doubt will hold you back from performing to your full potential whereas a goal-oriented mindset will keep you moving forward. Change your mindset from negative to positive, focus on your goals and your work performance will improve for the better.  

Take a step back if you need to.  

Although you shouldn’t go ahead and give yourself 30 minute breaks every few hours (your boss probably won’t appreciate that), it may be helpful for you to take a step back every so often. If you’re stuck on a task, stepping away from it for a few minutes can help you refocus and regather your energy. Either work on something else or take a few moments to breathe and get yourself back into the right mindset before you dive back into work.
