Most executives have some periods of intense, unrelenting stress. This can happen for example during a time the team is rapidly growing in numbers; during a mission-critical project where the stakes are very high; or during a time of crisis such as a major HR or legal issue.
At such times it’s a good idea to get back to basics, and remember that your body and brain are the only real tools you have for success. These simple rules will help you to function at your best when times get tough:
- Exercise, even if it’s just “walking meetings.”
- Eat healthy, even if someone else has to get your food.
- Buy a water bottle you really like.
- Improve your sleep and break-taking hygiene.
