6 EFFECTIVE AND AWESOME WAYS TO REDUCE STRESS AT WORK



Increasing job demands are one of the major factors contributing to stress in our workplaces.
Where employees are often expected to do more with less (time, resources, etc.). A circumstance that plays against both the labour productivity and
the physical and mental health of workers.

Other factors that may also influence the generation of stress are, as Terry Beehr, PhD, director of the organisational/industrial program at Central Michigan University, are anxious to meet the demand, the continuing pressure to be connected and Disagreements with the boss or co-workers, to cite the main examples.

In addition, although it is normal to be under stress at certain times, what is not healthy is that it is constant and increasing because, in the end, the effects are very negative for all the parties involved.  Some of your behavioural symptoms can indicate that you have stress. First, find out them, finally, manage the stress that can be derived from work, these six keys, according to Beehr, can help:

  • TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF

Stress can make the sufferer sick, both physically and emotionally. The ways to relieve this tension may be varied, but they should be used. Seek professional help if you need it. Do activities that relax you, from yoga to meeting friends, watching TV or doing gardening. And of course doing exercises is ideal in any of your ways to combat stress.

  • PRACTICE GRATITUDE

Be grateful for the positive things about your job and your working day. From the most important to the most simple. Write it down. At the end of the day, you will be amazed at everything good about your job, including your colleagues or the coffee you like. Everything counts.
But it is also encouraged to do some good action with others, with things as simple as giving a chocolate to colleagues from time to time, to cite an example.


  • CHANGE YOUR MENTAL FOCUS

To do this, follow these five steps: Stop and take a deep breath, watch your reaction when you are under stress (or ask someone to describe you to others), undo and control your negative emotions, find new ways to deal with stressful situations and make the decision to act with a new positive option.


  • GO IN GROUP...AND BIG

The people you work with can have a big impact on your level of job satisfaction. Seek to be accompanied, but be positive people and not style that always complains about everything. Look for colleagues who support you, who see life in a pleasant way. Social support will help you cope with stress more positively and have fun.


  • SOLVE YOUR CONCERNS

Find the sources of your stress and analyse how you can eliminate them. Beehr suggests that if you are under stress with a project, look for someone who can guide you or resolve doubts. If it is a problem with a partner, think about how you could solve it. Basically, the key is to have a problem-solving approach and try to solve what is in your hands.


  • RECONNECT WITH WHAT YOU LOVE MOST ABOUT YOUR WORK

Ask yourself, "What is the good thing about my job? How can I be good to help others? "Reconnect with what are your strengths and strengths to make a difference.
Most people are satisfied if they have a job that they see as meaningful and gives them the opportunity to use the skills they value most in themselves. Moreover, that contributes, enormously to alleviate the stress that can get to feel in the work.

And even if it is a repetition, re-consider the first recommendation to help immediately when you feel overwhelmed. Your mind and body will thank you. And possibly all those around you too ...
