Let’s face it. Being in real estate can be stressful. While this career path has many, many benefits, it also can be stressful at times. A real estate agent can routinely feel bombarded from all sides. There is a lot to contend with. Wishy-washy buyers, delusional sellers, spending all day in the car, and constantly being on an electronic device can all combine with the pressures of private life to form a toxic deluge of stress.
Real estate professionals have to find their own way of dealing with daily stresses, and what works for some might not work for others. There are obvious, tried and true ways that work for many and in this post, we wanted to share some tips to beat realtor stress!
One great way to combat stress in your career as a realtor is exercise. Joining a gym or hitting the track for a runner’s high does it for some. It’s no secret a good workout lowers stress and increases happiness.
Relaxation methods fight stress as well. Some people try yoga or meditation. Others get results by taking a leisurely stroll through a city park or trail.
Companionship is another great way to beat realtor stress. Making the time to get together with family and friends is a proven way to combat stress from the job. It often does wonders to talk about our stresses with the people we’re closest to. Even spending time with a beloved pet is proven to lower stress levels. Try tossing your dog a frisbee or playing with your cat.
It might seem silly, but superstitions such as knocking on a wooden table, not walking under a ladder, or going out of your way to avoid a black cat crossing your path can actually have real life benefits. These things give us sense of overcoming bad luck, and therefore add to our overall emotional state. It’s all in the mind, but hey, whatever works, right?
Another good mental technique for battling stress is to create positive self fulfilling prophecies. Often what we expect to happen happens. Keep a positive outlook and expect things to work out. Even if they don’t in the end, you will have defeated the stress caused by dread, both physically and mentally.
We often attack the biggest problems in our life first, neglecting the smaller victories we could be achieving in the moment. Sometimes we need to build up steam by taking the little wins we can achieve quickly. These smaller victories will add up to greatly reduce overall stress.
