You manage a team of twenty people at work. Each member has their own personality, their own way of completing a project, and a slew of opinions. You’re in a creative industry and sometimes things can get a bit chaotic at the office. It is fun and you enjoy the rapid pace. Then there are days where things do not seem to be clicking together. Deadlines get pushed back and your phone begins to go berserk. In these instances, you like to disappear into the prescription anti-anxiety medication you recently began taking. They are prescribed you note to yourself as you justify the extra doses you’ve been taking.

It probably doesn’t seem like such a big thing now. Keep up the habit and you could be in for a bumpy ride. There are many addictions that begin with a prescription and soon evolve into something much deeper. The truth of the matter is that prescriptions are also a pharmaceutical drug, therefore their extended use or misuse can have addictive effects. It is always wise to talk to your doctor about any health concern you may experience while on a prescribed medication.

Alternately, there are other ways to manage stress. Having a grounded approach to dealing with the concerns of the day is the first step in reducing the occurrence of unnecessary heightened emotions. Physical activity, whether in the form of exercise or through outdoor activities, can help to elevate your mood. Stepping out of a heightened mindset and into a fresh clean ambiance can be the difference between panic and composure. There are also activities that can be taken on such as golfing or fishing, which are known to have meditative effects. Meditation and mindfulness is also another way of facilitating a sense of calm. No matter what the avenue of choice is, there are always ways to reduce impacts of stress. It does not have to alter your life.
