How To Manage Stress At Work?

by admin on October 25, 2012

Stress is the most likely cause of relapse, and must be carefully managed. Work stress is a killer. Many studies have shown stress can have a detrimental effect on your health. When you are stressed at work you are less productive and more likely to make mistakes. Stress can’t be reduced, but it can be managed.

Here are 5 tips for dealing with the stress from your job:

1. Maintain a positive attitude. Negativism sucks the energy and motivation out of any situation, so stay away from it whenever possible.

2. Do what is needed for today and leave the rest for tomorrow. Work will always be there.

3. Do some physical activity at lunch time, get up and walk around, stretch your arms and take in deep breaths. By doing this you can ensure the stagnant fluid called lymph in your body, makes use of the movements and propels itself to different parts of the body, resulting in distribution of essential elements.

4. Avoid conflict at work. Because interpersonal conflict takes a toll on your physical and emotional health, and because conflict among co-workers is so difficult to escape, it’s a good idea to avoid conflict at work as much as possible.

5. Maintain your social circle outside of work. Your life does not revolve around work.
