(No Transcript)
Interrelation between motivation, time management
and stress
  • Motivation, stress, time and change management
    are three significant components of human
    existence. Every sector of life is influenced by
    these three factors. When you engage yourself in
    a task, you first have to estimate how much time
    you should dedicate to it. If you dont achieve
    the desired target, you will end up with a
    stressed situation. Under mental pressure, you
    will want someone or something to inspire you so
    that you can complete or re-do the unfinished

10 Effective Tips for Motivation
  • Keep Imagining 
  • Imagination can turn into reality. You never
    know. So keep thinking about an individual
    situation with love, joy and happiness over and
    again. You have to gain faith in this situation.
    Dont let contradictory thoughts enter your mind.

  • Incentivize Yourself
  • Treat yourself with favorite book, food or
    clothes. Schedule something nice after taking
    classes or work. Meet your friends, do a little
    workout or watch your favorite or a recent movie.
    Remind yourself that these are better than the
    guilt of calling in sick or the awkward excuses
    that need to be made.

  • Harness The Speed
  • You know we cant run full speed every day. Some
    days you require the autopilot. So at times, just
    lieback and listen attentively and reflectively
    to what your classmates and colleagues have to
    say. Running in at a slower pace sometimes can
    provide you with a better perspective.

  • Get An Attitude
  • Are you a great writer? Artistic? Or a tech whiz?
    Maybe good at interacting with people? Many
    people have special talent in one particular
    area, so they enjoy doing work related to that
    area. Involve yourself in what you love. Just
    pick one area and be serious about. This mantra
    will definitely refresh you.

  • Turn On The Competition
  • Many people suffer from inferiority complex that
    they are at a disadvantage than other students.
    But you can turn things around by getting a
    competitive attitude. Think of every project as a
    challenge and set out to do your assignment
    better than anybody else.

  • Focus on high-impact activities
  • Many people suffer from inferiority complex that
    they are at a disadvantage than other students.
    But you can turn things around by getting a
    competitive attitude. Think of every project as a
    challenge and set out to do your assignment
    better than anybody else.

  • Find a Social Network
  • Get help from the people around you. The mentors
    can be teachers or family friends who give you
    guidance and help you develop skills. You can
    also reach out to friends and peers who can
    motivate you by listening and sharing ideas.

  • Dont give up
  • Never lose hope, no matter how bleak things look.
    Hope is the only thing that can pull you out of
    the miserable situation. It is a ladder to reach
    your dreams and expectations. Positive thinking
    is the way to get positive results. It also makes
    you aware of the opportunities ahead of you.

  • Develop inner-strength
  • Self-discipline can be a powerful engine of your
    boat when you are letting the waves and currents
    take you wherever they please. You will be
    capable of navigating your boat wherever you want.

  • Be Focused
  • With focused and clear goals and the use of
    visualizations and affirmations, you will get
    where you want. Only strong belief and
    determination can help you to make necessary
    changes in your life.

10 Top Tips to Avoid
Eat healthy and think healthy
  • Consuming improper diet can also be the cause of
    stress levels. Using sugary and fatty snacks will
    not keep you healthy. There is healthy food that
    is known to reduce the symptoms of stress.
  • Chocolate
  • Garlic
  • Avocados
  • Berries
  • Cashews

  • Start laughing
  • Why? Because laughter releases endorphins (a
    group of hormones secreted within the brain and
    nervous system and having a number of
    physiological functions) that improve the mood.
    It also decreases the level of stress-causing
    hormones such as cortisol and adrenaline. So you
    know what to do.

  • Stress manager tea
  • According to a study published in American
    Journal of Clinical Nutrition, tea has positive
    effects on elderly people with depression. The
    reason is green tea has less than half the
    caffeine of coffee and contains healthy
    antioxidants as well as theanine (an amino acid
    that has a calming and soothing effect on the
    nervous system).

  • Try meditation
  • From the ancient ages, meditation is suggested to
    provide immediate relief. From yoga and tai chi
    to meditation and pilates, these systems of
    mindfulness engage you in physical and mental
    exercises that prevent stress from becoming a
    problem in the first place.

  • Sleep well
  • Everybody is aware of the facts that stress can
    take place due to insufficient sleep. So it is
    advisable that you get seven to eight hours
    sleep. Getting satisfactory sleep must be the
    most effective stress buster on your list.

  • Take a deep breath
  • It probably sounds like cliché, but it can be
    more convincing than you think. Buddhist monks
    practice deliberate breathing during meditation.
    What you can do is sit up on your chair with your
    feet flat on the floor and hands on top of your
    knees. Breathe in and out slowly and deeply,
    concentrating on lungs as they expand fully in
    your chest.

  • Express feelings
  • There are people who feel incapable of sharing
    their feelings with other. But remember
    expressing feelings help you to shed your worries
    in some way or the other. So if you are incapable
    of communicating your feelings, you should join a
    support network or write a journal, poem.

  • Accepting things
  • You need to accept that changing a difficult
    situation isnt always possible. There is no
    point in fighting a situation where you dont
    have any control rather you need to focus on the
    things you have control. This will definitely
    save you from anxiety and awful situations.

  • Take one step at time
  • Switching from one task to another can cause
    wastage of time and decrease in productivity.
    Make a list and prioritize the things you need to
    get done. Start an assignment only after you have
    completed an earlier one.

10 Fruitful Tips On Time
  • Question yourself
  • When your friends ask you to join them, you talk
    about not having enough time and crib. Rather
    than complaining to yourself, think about what
    you will do if you have enough time. Ask
    yourself, What am I exactly doing now?

  • Create a daily plan
  • Maintain a planner where you write the plans for
    the day. Do it in the morning or even better, the
    night before you sleep. This will give you a good
    overview of how the day will pan out. This way,
    you wont get caught off guard.

  • Dont think of the totality of your do-list
  • One of the effective ways to overwhelm yourself
    is to think about massive work to-do list. You
    need to understand no amount of thought will make
    it shorter. But instead of that you can focus on
    one task before you take up another one.

  • Focus and prioritize
  • Since you cannot do everything at time you need
    to stop multi-tasking. So close off all tabs that
    you are not using. Prioritize your work and focus
    on the most significant one.

  • Practice the 4Ds
  • Donaldson-Feilder suggested practicing the 4Ds of
    decision-making which are
  • Delete Half of the emails you get can probably
    be removed immediately
  • Do If the email is important, revert it quickly
  • Delegate If the email can be best dealt with by
    someone else, convey it
  • Defer  Set aside time for emails that require
    longer actions

  • Learn to say no
  • Keep yourself from making a lot of time
    commitments. At some point, you need to learn to
    decline opportunities. Your objectives should be
    based on those commitments that you know you can
    accomplish and you truly care about.

  • Do related tasks
  • Lets say you have to do two PowerPoint
    presentations and two assignments on finance.
    Approaching the task in whatever way you feel
    like is absolutely no-no for you. It is advisable
    that you group the liked tasks and do them

  • Auditing
  • At the weekends, invest some time in auditing and
    look at exactly where your time is getting
    exhausted. Try to notice where you spend your
    time on regular weekdays. Come up with some
    innovative ideas on how you can use time at its

  • Be open to opportunities, know yourself better
    and embrace your passions. Only this way, your
    work will be more enjoyable and you will achieve
    goals within the shortest possible time limit.
