Nowhere is stress more likely than in the workplace. Every job brings with it a degree of stress. And, what may be stressful to one person may not be stressful to another. Only you can really determine whether or not you find your current job stressful. If you determine it is, with the fact that stress at work can affect your professional and personal relationships, it needs to be dealt with.
In small doses, stress is a good thing. It can energize and motivate you to deal with challenges. But prolonged or excessive stress overwhelms your ability to cope and will take a severe psychological and physical toll on you.
High stress levels have been linked to depression, anxiety, cardiovascular disease, musculoskeletal problems, impaired immune response and cancer.
So it surely is a no brainer that you want to deal with it before it turns down that path.
So when stress is getting you down, take a moment to reflect on all of these strategies which can help you reduce stress at work.
No job is worth making you ill.
