5 Steps To Stop Stressing At Work
Having a job and being stressed out seem to be two common themes in our daily lives. It’s normal – healthy even – to stress out over deadlines and meetings, as long as it gives you a boost of energy and stays within your comfort zone. However, some workplaces make you so stressed out that you start developing chronic illnesses, such as heart disease, high blood pressure, as well as a myriad of physical and mental ailments.
“The evidence is clear that the leadership qualities of ‘bad’ bosses over time exert a heavy toll on employees’ health,” says Jonathan D. Quick, an instructor in medicine at Harvard Medical School and co-author of the book Preventive Stress Management in Organizations. “The evidence is also clear that despite the rationalizations some leaders may use to defend their stress-inducing, unsupportive style, such behavior by leaders does not contribute to improved individual performance or organizational productivity.”
Stress affects each one of us differently and the reasons behind it vary. The important first step you need to take in order to minimize stress at the workplace is to understand that stress is how we respond to external factors, such as taking on more work than you can handle, feeling undermined and undervalued, dealing with annoying co-workers and bosses who may also be acting inappropriately towards you.
Feeling overwhelmed with things like deadlines, traffic, and all the damaging effects of stress in between, is something you need to be wary of and learn to control early on, or else it will cast a shadow over you and your health for many years to come.
Most of us think of stress as something that happens to us, but you need to realize that stress is something you can control. After all, it’s your own body’s response to everything going on around you.
