Almost all of us have experienced stress in the workplace or work associated stress at some point or another in our lives. It’s inevitable. Sometimes you’ll be briefed into a project last minute and have to perform on the spot or in a limited time period. Sometimes you’ll see a dip in sales or other performance indicators and have to rectify the issue before it becomes an ongoing problem making a loss for the business. Sometimes you’ll lack the resources necessary to get the job done on time and may find yourself running a little late.
But what’s important to remember is that stress shouldn’t be an expected part of your daily working routine. It shouldn’t be something you undergo at work on a daily basis. Sure, it’ll happen now and then. But you shouldn’t head to work expecting to be stressed out by the time you sit down at your desk. If this is the case, it’s important to seek help and support from your manager or your boss. You may need to redistribute workloads more evenly or set more realistic targets and plans.
For the situations where you experience stress on an irregular or one-off basis, it’s also important that you know how to manage your stress effectively. It shouldn’t be debilitating and it shouldn’t be allowed to impact your health in any way, shape, or form – either physically, mentally or emotionally.
