What is causing you anxiety?
In the first part of our series on stress in the workplace, we talked about the most common stress profiles and asked our readers to share their worries about the workplace and advice for dealing with anxiety.
Senior HR professionals’ most common sources of stress, according to our survey, are:
-An abundance of work (53.6 percent) -Tight deadlines (19.2 percent) -Bosses (11.5 percent) -Coworkers (11.5 percent) These same respondents described their stress profiles as follows:
-The doer assumes all responsibility (67.8%); -The decisionmaker delegate and doesn’t worry about the little things (21.4%); -The ditherer appears to be busy doing nothing (7.1%); -The denier ignores the problem (3.5%) On the most difficult days, we all wish that stress did not exist at all. However, it is essential to keep in mind that optimal performance in the workplace requires a healthy amount of stress. Positive stress, also known as eustress, is essential to achieving your objectives because it motivates you to work hard. When everything becomes too much for you to handle, you experience negative stress (distress) and feel overwhelmed and discouraged.
Top hints for reducing stress Want to push yourself to achieve your career goals? Try the following:
Identify your triggers: Did your pulse rise when your supervisor called you out in a group meeting? When your manager dropped a pile of paperwork on your desk, did you want to leave? In the event that you can distinguish the specific reason for your tension, it will make it simpler to think of an arrangement or converse with your manager about dealing with your responsibility.
Instead of focusing on the issue, focus on the solution: If you continue to think about your issues in the same way, it will only make them worse. Think about it: Which state of mind do I prefer right now? You can make plans to get there once you have that answer.
Be able to say no: However most of our study respondents recognize their pressure profiles as practitioners, over portion of them said their greatest reason for pressure is a weighty responsibility. Is there a connection? You will only become exhausted if you take on everything; Instead, you can control your anxiety by trying to manage your own workload by delegating or saying no.
Use the off button: Don’t think about it when you’re not at work. Instead, spend time with loved ones or pursue a passion that brings you great joy. You will be able to approach work with a new perspective because it will give your mind some time to rest.
