Feeling stressed and overwhelmed with your business?

September is a funny time of year isn’t it? You may have been working a little less over the last couple of months because you were on holiday, clients needed less from you or you had limited childcare. Or perhaps all three?!

Whatever the reason I find that it can sometimes take a little while to get back into full work mode or perhaps you have been feeling stretched, unfocussed, overwhelmed or lost your mojo?

Stress is an everyday occurrence. We experience stress when we feel threated and when we believe that we don’t have the resources to deal with the situation. The signs of stress can be physical, a change in feelings and behaving differently. The root cause of stress can be made up of four main sources but can be one main issue or a culmination of issues.  A very interesting subject around stress is cause and effect. Cause and effect is a relationship between events or things, where one is the result of the other or others. This is a combination of action and reaction. As an example, without an alarm you would probably oversleep so the alarm has an effect of you waking up at a certain time. Feelings of stress are normally triggered by things happening in life such as being under a lot of pressure, facing big changes, not having control or having responsibility that is overwhelming. There may be one big thing that is stressful, but it can also be lots of small issues that build up over time. Stress can be closely linked to mental health if it is a struggle to manage feelings.

So if you are feeling stressed, here are some ideas that have helped me and also my clients that may help you manage your stress and also thrive over the last few months of the year:

  • Systems/process/strategy - focus on some simple processes and strategies to put in place. They don’t need to be time consuming and difficult; all systems should help you to work more efficiently.
  • Focused time - how often do you spend working on your business? Planning and focusing your time can really help with clarity and goals. Also focus on those priorities, here is a useful blog
  • Ask for help – have trusted business buddies, mentor, Coach (!) or networking friends who can all support you, if you ask for it!
  • Spend less time on your own – a shameless plug for my co-working club J  How different does it feel when you get out to an energising event, coffee shop or co-working space?

What do you do when you are feeling overwhelmed? I asked the co-workers on my Facebook group and there were some fab ideas on how to feel less stressed, why don’t you answer the question on the group: I feel better when…… www.facebook.com/groups/TahiCoworking

About Sanchia Aronberg:

As a successful woman in business myself, I understand the challenges of juggling a business and managing family life as well – and that is why I am passionate and committed to supporting my clients to achieve their goals, through pro-active and realistic support.

I know how important it is to be able to ask for help, get the support you need and build a solid network of people to collaborate with and explore ideas.

Helping women with their business wellbeing is what I do best through an approach that is supportive, open and solution-focused and delivered through bespoke coaching, training, workshops, success and growth clubs and business networking. I am also a massive advocate of taking care of yourself first! You may well hear me harp on about self-care, planning, me time and stress management during our sessions, because if you’re not taking care of yourself first, then it becomes very difficult to run a business too.

With over 12 years’ experience in the corporate world, I have worked in Human Resources across many sectors including insurance, hotels and property, alongside big brands like Sheraton and Knight Frank. The turning point in my own career came after having my son; I simply did not want the 3-hour commute in London every day, so I ventured into business on my own and started Aronberg Training; now fast forward nearly 5 years and I am still going strong, recently rebranding as Sanchia Aronberg: Support-Strategy-Success.

So, if you want to make sure you are starting out on the right track with the right tools and support, need a business health-check, or are already established and want to keeping pushing forward, I can help – but, what we will do is look after you first!

I am based in Bishops Stortford in East Hertfordshire and my office is easily accessible for clients in Cambridgeshire, Hertfordshire and Essex. I also offer phone, online video calls such as Skype, WhatsApp or Zoom as well as good old-fashioned phone calls for clients in other locations.
