Displaced feelings brought to work? Here are two quick coping mechanisms.
Are you shutting down from clients when you are actively avoiding family members? You tend to get angry or restless when you feel someone has done you wrong? Having a bad day, a tiff with a loved one, or feeling like you are not being heard can easily travel with us to work. Human beings are not perfect, so it is common to want to vent in some way, shape, or form, even if what or who you are venting on is not the problem. However, displacing negative feelings from one phenomenon to another causes business issues that are willing to snowball.
So how can you cope with these feelings? Rationalization and acceptance are positive coping mechanisms that can help. Rationalize your thoughts about the real problem and solve it, preferably before starting work. Next, move to accept reality and work on business priorities. Need help with how to do that? Let the experts at Ima Solution help you with prioritization and process management such that coping with negative emotions does not affect your work day!
