Keep stress away this Summer!

Do you want to stay cool as a cucumber this Summer?

MHL have spoken with Milton Keynes Care Home managers who have shared their top tips of how to keep stress away this summer!

Why not try and see for yourself?

 

Leave work on time!

 

 

 

 

Help your team to ‘keep their plates spinning’, if they know what they’re doing, your job will be easier.

 

 

 

 

Set boundaries with your staff i.e. “Please try not to call me when I am driving”

 

 

 

 

Help your team to reach and identify solutions.

Doing this give teams confidence and prevent people from always relying on you for the answer.

 

 

 

 

Take breaks in your Day! Fresh air is good for you, take a walk.

 

 

 

 

Notice yourself, how you are feeling when under pressure? Try to shift any unhelpful behaviours that underpin it.

 

 

 

 

  • Create time to reflect, keep a reflective diary?

 

 

 

 

Prioritise work (i.e. to –do list?)

 

 

 

 

Try not to take work home.

 

 

 

 

Celebrate what you’ve achieved today!

 

 

 

 

Our thanks goes to the Managers of the My Home Life Milton Keynes Leadership Support Programme for their suggestion and thoughts to help others.
