Stop Feeling Overwhelmed At Work

Posted:

Work can sometimes feel overwhelming. Between new projects, heavier workloads and being connected 24/7, it can be hard to disconnect.

CNN money has a list of some simple ways you can cut back at work, and speak up without feeling like you're sabotaging your future.

First, keep a working list of all of your projects, so if your boss wants to add more to your plate, you are ready to say how that could keep you from succeeding at other priorities.That list also helps you justify needing help.For example, you might say i can take on something new, but i need this support to make it happen.

Next, look for ways to help others who might be able to take on a project you don't have time for. Delegating a project can give another person opportunity to grow.

Chances are, your boss won't brush you off if you speak up about your workload.

According to a survey—– 70% of managers say "the overwhelmed employee" is an urgent or very important problem getting in the way of their workplace productivity.
