by Juan Nava

Hey there, fellow stressed-out workers! Are you tired of dealing with toxic people at work? Do you feel like you're always walking on eggshells, trying not to set off a ticking time bomb? Well, fear not! I'm here to share some tips and tricks to help you deal with these difficult people and keep your sanity intact.

First off, let's talk about the impact of toxic people on our stress levels. As we all know, stress is a normal part of life, but when it's excessive, it can have a negative impact on our health and performance. And let's face it, toxic people are like stress on steroids. They drain our energy, create unnecessary conflict, and make our work lives miserable.

But here's the good news: we have the power to control our attitudes and manage our emotions. It all starts with developing our emotional intelligence. A recent study found that people with the best performance have a more assertive management of their emotions, which means they're better equipped to deal with toxic people.

So, how can we deal with toxic people effectively? Here are some strategies to try:

  1. Learn to set limits – don't let toxic people walk all over you.
  2. Don't get caught up in conflict situations – try to stay calm and rational.
  3. Remember that the one who gets angry loses – be smarter than the other person.
  4. Stay aware of your emotions – don't let toxic people push your buttons.
  5. Learn to block the constant complaints of these people – don't let their negativity bring you down.
  6. Don't let anyone limit or control your mood – you're in charge of your own happiness.
  7. Don't focus on the problems, focus on the solutions – be proactive, not reactive.
  8. Forgive but do not forget – move on from the negativity, but don't let it happen again.
  9. Don't catch the other person's negative energy – focus on positivity and optimism.
  10. Have regular periods of rest, introspection, or meditation to return to your ideal emotional state – take care of yourself and your mental health.

And if all else fails, release your negative energy through a hobby or physical activity. I recently discovered that coloring mandalas is a great way to de-stress and unwind.

So, there you have it. With these tips in your arsenal, you'll be better equipped to deal with toxic people at work and keep your stress levels under control.
