Experiencing a little stress at work isn't always bad, but when to know you're experiencing TOO MUCH stress?
Stress isn’t always bad. A little bit of stress can help you stay focused, energetic, and able to meet new challenges in the workplace. It’s what keeps you on your toes during a presentation or alert to prevent accidents or costly mistakes.
But in today’s hectic world, the workplace too often seems like an emotional roller coaster. Long hours, tight deadlines, and ever-increasing demands can leave you feeling worried, drained, and overwhelmed. And when stress exceeds your ability to cope, it stops being helpful and starts causing damage to your mind and body—as well as to your job satisfaction.
You can’t control everything in your work environment, but that doesn’t mean you’re powerless, even when you’re stuck in a difficult situation.
If stress on the job is interfering with your work performance, health, or personal life, it’s time to take action. No matter what you do for a living, what your ambitions are, or how stressful your job is, there are plenty of things you can do to reduce your overall stress levels and regain a sense of control at work.
Watch this video to understand the difference between acute vs chronic stress, how these 2 forms of stress can affect your health, as well as when it might be time for you to find a new job opportunity.
I’d love to hear about your experience at work. Is your work stress reasonable or over-the-top overwhelming that you can't stop thinking about it even after working hours?
