How to beat the stress

If you are serious about progressing in your career, modelling will be hard work. Many jobs will be fun, but some will also involve working in difficult conditions (cold, wet, etc), wearing uncomfortable outfits, or holding uncomfortable poses for significant periods of time.

Persistence is important. Being a model will typically mean having to deal with rejection and criticism (not all of which will be constructive). You may be told you are too tall, too short, too fat, too skinny, too fit, too out of shape, don't have the right look, are not intense enough, are too intense, are not relaxed enough, etc. The point is, you may be criticized in any number of ways depending on who you are working with and what their needs are. So it is important that you develop a positive attitude to be able to deal with criticism.

It is very important to eat well and have enough hours of sleep if you want to keep calm and beat the stress.

If you have any free time exercising it’s a great way to relief the stress and the endorphins will make you happy.

If you ever loose your temper, or have a problem, always explain and apologise if necessary. Most workplace strains and stresses are down to a lack of communication, and people are always receptive to an explanation of your circumstances.

Everybody has problems but try to keep them outside the studio, or the catwalk. Don’t take problems to your work and don’t bring problems home. If you have any disagreement with someone in the team talk to them and try to make things straight.

If there is a recurring problem, speak to your agent. It's better to find a reasonable way of sorting things out that losing your temper and walking out. That just reflects badly on you and could have a disastrous effect on your modelling career.

Don’t forget your social life, having friends and having fun is important. Don’t live for your job.
