You don't need to hear how stressful life can be.

These days Monday blues are turning into week long blues.

 

Your days could be filled with a whole host of things that will make you want to run in another direction and not deal.

But researchers at the University of Mannheim in Germany have found that changing your stress "mindset" could help you in a positive way, the Daily Mail reported.

For the study, researchers examined how 171 workers felt during a normal work week.

Participants had to fill a diary thrice a day. At the beginning of the day, they had to write about their workload for the day. After work, researchers listed whether or not the participants took any constructive steps to manage with the work.  At the end of the day employees had to explain how they thought they fared during the day.

The results showed those with a positive stress mindset were able to tackle their projects at work in a more energized manner.Your problems won't vanish over night, but what you can do is change the way you think to a postive mindset when you find a task stressful.

Researchers feel this approach can help provide an opportunity to learn and achieve something.
