Tips on how to manage work stress😫

Work stress can often be overwhelming, impacting not only your professional performance but also your overall well-being. Fortunately, there are effective strategies you can employ to better manage and reduce work-related stress. Here are some tips to help you navigate through stressful work situations and maintain a healthy work-life balance:

  1. Prioritize and Organize: Breaking down tasks into smaller, manageable steps can make them feel less daunting.
  2. Set Boundaries: Avoid bringing work-related stress home and make time for activities that help you relax and recharge outside of work.
  3. Practice Time Management: Set realistic deadlines for tasks and projects, and allocate sufficient time for each. Focus on one task at a time and give it your full attention.
  4. Communicate and Delegate: Communicate your workload and concerns with your colleagues or superiors. Seek assistance or delegate tasks when necessary to foster a supportive work environment.
  5. Take Breaks and Practice Self-Care: Regular breaks and relaxing and recharging activities, such as going for a walk, practising deep breathing exercises, or listening to calming music; promote physical and mental well-being.
  6. Seek Support: support from a trusted colleague, mentor, or supervisor should be welcomed for stress management. You may also seek professional help if you can.
  7. Maintain a Healthy Lifestyle: Prioritize regular exercise, maintain a balanced diet, and ensure sufficient sleep. Meditation or yoga also come in handy.

Forest Fires Continue To Ravage Canada, Cause Poor Air Quality Forcing Citizens Indoors

Over the past week, there have been additional forest fires burning across Canada, and on Sunday, new hazardous air quality alerts were issued in several areas of Ontario and Quebec.

There are currently 465 active fires burning throughout Canada, including 240 out-of-control flames, according to the Canadian Interagency Forest Fire Centre, or CIFFC. Environment Canada said that wind patterns were forcing smoke from some of those fires to fall over the western and eastern parts of the province of Quebec, where over one-quarter of those fires are located.

As wildfire smoke from Quebec again covers the sky, Environment Canada issues a warning about the poor air quality in the nation's capital, leading to the cancellation of numerous outdoor activities and the closure of many outdoor amenities.

The mayors of Ottawa and Gatineau have announced the closure of public pools and beaches, and festivals all throughout the city have either cancelled or changed their plans.

The city's weather prediction predicts that there will be heavy smoke throughout the day and into the night.

India’s Bitter War With Brazil Over Sugar Exports Continues At World Trade Organisation

According to official sources, India and Brazil are negotiating to settle a sugar issue at the World Trade Organisation (WTO), and the commerce ministry is working with the relevant agencies on the matter. According to them, India is also using a similar procedure for other parties who have filed complaints about the sugar issue with the WTO in Geneva.

India was hauled into the WTO's dispute resolution process in 2019 by Brazil, Australia, and Guatemala on the grounds that New Delhi's sugar subsidies to farmers were against international trade norms.

One of the individuals, who is aware of the development, stated that the Department of Commerce is cooperating with all the involved line ministries to come up with potential solutions.

The experiment gains importance since on December 14, 2021, a WTO dispute panel declared that India's assistance policies for the sugar sector are incompatible with international trade laws.

Nigeria's Apex Bank Tasks Banks To Gather Customers’ Social Media Handles

Financial institutions are required by an order from the Central Bank of Nigeria to gather clients' social media handles, email addresses, phone numbers, residence locations, and other pertinent data.

According to the programme, clients' due diligence procedures will be strengthened, and money laundering and terrorism funding would be prevented.

But a non-governmental group, the Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project (SERAP), has criticised the instruction as being illegal and violating "Nigerians' rights to freedom of expression and privacy."

The Nigerian central bank stated in its recently published Customer Due Diligence Regulations, 2023 that money deposit institutions are required to gather extensive information about their clients, including their social media accounts.

According to the statement, the rule included provisions "designed to improve the ability of financial institutions to identify and monitor potential risks linked to customer activities."

The new work week brings its joys and sorrows, stay motivated and keep the spark alight. Cheers to the new week!🥂
