Dealing With Stress at Work

Stressed out at work

You can't totally avoid stress. Even if you had nothing to do but sit on the porch and watch the grass grow, you would have stress. You would be thinking about the latest military skirmish our government has gotten us into. You would be worried about the government spending the country into bankruptcy. You would worried about steadily increasing crime and if you would become a victim. You would be stressing over the weather and if the lack of rain would cause that grass to turn brown and die. You would be stressing over the fact that you're just sitting on the porch not getting proper exercise and if this would affect your health. There's always something to stress about.

Work loads on even more to worry about. Will that idiot fellow employee that you had an argument with somehow get you fired? Will you get your latest assignment completed on time? Have you made a mistake that hasn't been discovered yet and the boss is going ream you out when it does get discovered? Is business slowing down and management putting your name on the non-essential personnel list for possible layoff? There's always something at work to stress about.

Yes, stress is a normal part of life and work, but too much stress can actually cause health problems. How do you know if you're experiencing too much stress? Below is a list of the signs of too much stress.

Feeling worried or afraid most of the time
Feeling depressed and having no interest in life or work
Having no interest in being with other people
Felling tired and fatigued but can't sleep
Can't focus or concentrate
Muscle tension for no reason
Headaches and⁄or vision problems
Stomach problems

How to Deal With Too Much Stress

Most stress is caused by poor time management. Lets face it, if there were no time limits, no deadlines, if you could just let things take forever, there would be no stress. Poor time management results from having too much on your plate and having a life out-of-balance.

The fact is, one man, or one woman, can only do so much. Make a list of all the things that are eating up your time. Which things on your list are things that you must do, and which are things that you should do? Maybe you have a problem saying NO to people who have no respect for your time and for your personal life. Donít over-commit yourself. Drop things that aren't absolutely necessary.

An individual can accomplish an amazing amount of things if they have balance. When I say balance, I mean physical-mental balance and work-personal life balance. If you're spending a lot of time at work involved in mental activities, use your after-work time involved in physical activities. Each minute of physical activity deletes the stress caused by one minute of mental activity. I know it sounds crazy, but give it a try. It works.

If you're spending a lot of time at work, balance that with social activities, family time, and solitary activities and downtime. Sure working all kinds of overtime may get you a bigger paycheck, but what good is that going to be after you have a nervous breakdown or a stroke? We work to earn money to have a better life, not to have no life.
