Work, of course, can often prove to be a pretty stressful environment. Many of us work high demand jobs and expectations of us will be pretty high. We’ll always want to achieve or exceed or KPIs (or “key performance indicators”) and this will inevitably entail meeting deadlines, hitting targets, making sales or generating leads and ultimately working pretty hard. But it’s important to remember that work doesn’t have to be stressful. In fact, you shouldn’t be suffering from stress at work on a regular basis at all!
There are all sorts of consequences that come hand in hand with experiencing stress on a regular basis that go far beyond the uncomfortable feeling of being stressed itself. You can suffer physically with issues such as headaches, migraines or muscle tension. You can also suffer mentally, with anxiety or depression. So, it’s important that you know how to effectively deal with stress and how to remove yourself from stress at work.
There are all sorts of things you can do to reduce stress at work. These can vary from talking to your manager or boss if your workload is unreasonable or unrealistic. You can take breaks from your desk every now and then to stretch your legs and clear your head. You can organise your working day so you don’t become overwhelmed or miss tasks and find yourself playing catch up.
These are just a few things you can do to improve your working day and minimise the amount of stress you experience during your working week. But for more information, take a look at the infographic by STL Training below!
