When Business and Personal Life Clash 
The last few months, May in particular, has been extremely challenging times for me. My main focus was to manage things in bite sizes and speak to people I could trust. 
I’ve often heard and repeated that life throws you curve balls and it’s not what happens but how you manage the situation. However, there are times when I’ve wanted to press the pause button just to be able to take stock of what is happening and get a new perspective on how to move forward, and there are also times when I’ve had to fight through the struggle, putting on my ‘armour of faith for battle’. Either way, both strategies have been exhausting mentally and physically. 
If you are in a similar situation here’s a few tips on how to cope? 
Set boundaries: It is important to set clear boundaries between personal and business life. Making sure you have designated times for work and personal activities. 
Prioritize: Determine what is most important and prioritize your time and energy accordingly. This will help you focus on what matters most and avoid feeling overwhelmed. 
Communicate: If you are feeling overwhelmed or stressed, communicate your concerns with your boss, colleagues, or family. They may be able to offer support or solutions to help alleviate the situation. 
Take breaks: It is important to take breaks throughout the day to recharge and refresh your mind. This will help you stay focused and productive. 
Seek help: If you are struggling to manage the situation on your own, seek help from a professional or a trusted friend or family member. They may be able to offer guidance and support. 
Battling through a stressful situation can be difficult, but here are some further tips that may help: 
Identify the source of stress: It is important to identify the source of stress and understand what is causing it. This can help you develop a plan to manage and overcome it. 
Practice self-care: Take care of yourself by getting enough sleep, eating healthy, exercising regularly, and taking breaks when needed. This can help you feel more energized and better equipped to deal with stress. 
Use relaxation techniques: Try relaxation techniques such as deep breathing, meditation, or yoga. These techniques can help you calm your mind and reduce stress. 
Seek support: Talk to a trusted friend, family member, or a professional about your stress. They may be able to offer guidance and support. 
Take action: Take action to address the source of stress. Break down the problem into smaller, manageable steps and tackle them one at a time. This can help you feel more in control and reduce stress. 
Remember, it is important to take care of yourself during stressful situations. If you are feeling overwhelmed or unable to manage stress on your own, seek help from a professional.
