Strategies to Reduce Overwhelm in Your Pharmacy

The most prepared of us can feel overwhelmed with professional and personal obligations. Preparation can help you through the season with less stress.

The last few months of the year always seem to be accompanied by a sense of time running out. Probably because for many things, it really is. Cold & Flu Season has pharmacies busy, along with Medicare Open Enrollment. Add that to general cold & flu season, the upcoming holidays, and a whole slew of loose ends that probably need tied up before the new year… well… I guess it’s fair to say that all the clocks are ticking at once.

Even the most prepared of us can feel overwhelmed with the professional and personal obligations that come at this time of year. There might not even be a way around it. Still, preparation is the way to get through the season with the least amount of stress possible.

There's no single magic answer that will eliminate your overwhelm or remove stress from your pharmacy team. Luckily, there are some strategies that can help to reduce both overwhelm and stress.
