1. Organise your day as best as you can
2. Patients - if they are demanding or rude, talk to them quietly but firmly stating your position. You don't have to put up with this.
3. Learn as much as you can. Listen to your more experienced colleagues and ask plenty of questions. You are both expanding your knowledge base as well as developing relationships with the staff, who generally will support you if you show interest. '
4. Learn some relaxation techniques. There are shortened versions that you can do while you are at work. If things get really bad just STOP!, take a breath, relax yourself, then move on.
5. If you are concerned about your performance, talk to someone. They may be able to give you pointers, or tell you how wonderful you are
6. Ensure you have your break. You won't realise how much you need it until you are in the tea room. And don't talk work when you are there
7. Have lots of 'me' time at home, at least an hour a day Don't just concentrate on work, get out and have fun, go swimming, visit friends. Get out of the house.
8. Obviously eat well and sleep well.
9. If you find you are becoming stressed, and you can't seem to resolve it, see a counsellor. Don't let things get so bad that you need to go on medication.
Hope this helps.
