Do you consider yourself stressed at work?
Everyone experiences a certain amount of stress whilst they’re sat at their office workstations, but if you regularly feel overwhelmed and as though you can’t cope, it’s time to really take a look at what is causing you to feel that way, and work out how you can manage it.
Stress, when left unchecked, over a long period of time, can be extremely dangerous for health and wellbeing. Stress affects the body in many different ways and can, in the most extreme cases, be a contributor toward heart attack and diabetes formation. Both of these are potentially fatal conditions.
For that reason, understanding stress and dealing with it in a healthy way is vital.
A little stress can be motivating, but too much stress, over a long period of time, is far from motivating and will cause your health to decline, your productivity to fall, and basically cause a situation which his far from happy and healthy for you.
With that in mind, it’s important to identify your main workplace stressor. By doing that, you can work to reduce it and manage your stress levels.
You’ll probably be able to identify with a lot of what is said in that video, but identifying the one thing which causes you the most stress is a vital part of the puzzle.
Think carefully. When do you feel the most stressed? What triggers cause your stress to rise? When do you feel calm? It’s a good idea to brainstorm and write things down, because then you will get everything out of your mind and create a clearer picture. Once you’ve finished your brainstorming, look at what you’ve written or scribbled and see if you can identify a pattern.
Does your stress rise when you have to sit at the boardroom table and collaborate? Do you feel stressed whenever you think about the amount of work you have to do? Is there one particular person who causes you to feel overwhelmed and stressed?
You might have several stressors, but there will always be one which stands out above the others. This is the stressor you need to tackle first. It might be that you need to speak to your manager and explain that you’re feeling stressed and why you think it is. By doing this, you’re highlighting a problem which might also be affecting your colleagues. Most people suffer in silence when it comes to workplace stress, and this is something we need to change!
From there, you need to work out ways to reduce your stress naturally. You could try active working, perhaps using stand height tables, which have been shown to give you a natural boost of feel-good hormones via the exercise you’re getting. You could also think about adding a few plants into your work space, which have also been shown to naturally reduce stress levels and increase productivity too.
Making use of privacy tools such as screen, booths, and quiet zones will also help you focus, concentrate and hit the targets that might be causing you to feel under pressure.
Workplace stress is not something you should try and live with, and it’s important to identify the stressor that is affecting you the most and tackle it. From there, you can tackle the other stressors that might also be causing you problems too.
