Stress Management-Work Related Stress

As adults, the majority of us have to maintain a full-time job, if we have any kind of hope of keeping a roof over our head, and with that job, often will come stress by the bus-load. We all know that stress is bad for us, but we feel as though there is nothing we can do about it, since we have to keep our job, if we want to have a place to live and food to eat. So, what can you do to better handle and deal with stress at work? Is there anything that can be done, or do we just have to learn to suck it up and go on anyway?

Each job comes with it’s own unique stresses, especially in the form of bad management or poor supervisors. While some stress at work can be good for you, as it may push you to work harder to reach that goal you have set for yourself, too much stress at work can definitely impact all areas of your life. If you start feeling as though the stress you feel at work never goes away, not even when you are at home or out with friends, then it is definitely time to do something about it.

The first thing you need to do is look at issues that you might actually have some sort of control over. For example, do you feel stressed because of the long commute you have to and from work everyday? Do you get up early and feel like you have to run out the door to make it to work on time because of all the traffic you meet on the way? This is an example of an easy fix. You either need to relocate to a job that is closer to your home, or consider moving to a new home, one that will eliminate your long commute. There are probably many aspects in your day to day life similar to this example that you might be able to change, if you take the time to think about it. The more stress you can get rid of, the better off you will be.

If you don’t feel as though you have enough time at work to complete the tasks that you are assigned, maybe you need to look at how you spend your time at work. Do you have your workspace organized so that everything you need is readily at hand, or do you have to spend ten or fifteen minutes looking for every item, before you can even being work on the assigned task? Do you make personal calls at work, or spend a lot of time in the break room or bathroom chatting it up with your coworkers? Do you get distracted easily by people coming in and out of your office, or up and down the hall? These are issues that really fall on you, not on your job, issues that you can take care of simply by learning how to organize your space, and how to stop wasting precious time while at work. No, you don’t have to sit at your desk all day and never move, but you should learn how to make the most of your time, and eliminate time wasters, such as surfing the net or talking to friends. Do that on your own time, at home.

Before you go home from work, or on your lunch break, get some exercise. Hit the walking track or the gym and burn off the stress of the day. This can help you rest better, and reduce your stress levels so you will be ready and able to tackle any new task that comes your way.

If you just don’t seem able to shake the stress at work no matter what you do, and it is starting to take its toll, then it may be time to look for a new employer. No one wants to do this, but if you aren’t happy where you are, you aren’t likely to be very successful anyway, so it really is best for everyone involved.
