One can handle stress in workplace by enlisting help from colleagues or by other means. No matter what the method is, it is important for one to find a healthy way to handle stress. Stress can be taken care of with the following simple tips: controlling food intake by planning ahead, practicing relaxation techniques such as yoga and meditation, setting aside time for exercise and keeping a journal about your thoughts.”
Stress can be difficult to manage especially when it comes work related because we’re not only stressed with the tasks we have but also people we work with. It’s equally difficult attending job interview and dealing with unpleasant workmates. Also, what’s more stressful—complaining about work problems to your colleagues or an outright tantrum? It’s also important to take care of your physical health. However, research shows that work stress can lead to physical as well as psychological problems. In a study published in the journal Psychosomatic Medicine, researchers found that individuals with work-related psychological issues have a 60 percent higher risk of suffering from heart disease. They also have a 30 percent higher risk of suffering from high blood pressure and a 55 percent decreased risk of suffering from diabetes. Workers who complained about their job were found to have a 30 percent higher risk of having other health problems such as headaches, back pain and gastrointestinal issues. In conclusion, the problem with stress in the workplace is that it can affect many aspects of our lives. Stay healthy and stress-free.
