Posted Jun 21 2010 10:29am
Throughout the many years that I’ve worked with, encountered, and observed businessmen, entrepreneurs, small-business owners and even corporate workers, I’ve come to realize that many of them still believe that workplace stress is an inevitable and unsolvable problem.
I’m here to tell you that not only is this untrue but managing workplace stress is as easy as breathing.
Some common causes of workplace stress are improper time management and failure to delegate work assignments.
Sometimes, you find yourself buried under so many tasks that have to be done within the day and yet you still refuse to delegate some of the responsibilities to people you work with or that work for you.
Constantly subjecting yourself to this kind of stress will inevitably create more problems than solutions. And when this happens, you either spiral down or shell out serious hard earned money to pay for professional help.
The reason people work so hard is to be able to afford not only the necessities in life but also the luxuries.
Now, some people work too hard that they find themselves unable to enjoy the luxuries that they can now afford.
This can be easily remedied. All you have to do is keep reading on and remember the 3 devastating consequences of not managing work place stress and how you can avoid them.
Avoiding workplace stress is as simple as drawing up a schedule and sticking to it.
With that said however, it is important that throughout the day, schedule some flexible downtime so that you can recharge yourself with simple breathing exercises or just simply sit back and allow your body to rest.
You’ll be surprised how much more productive you can be after you’ve taken a few minutes to recharge your mind and body.
- Taking on more than what you can handle.
While it is commendable and surely promotion-worthy to be as productive and accommodating as possible, sometimes it is also detrimental and causes workplace stress.
Know your limits and capabilities.
Check your resources and your ability to follow through before you take on commitments at work.
It is always better to surprise clients by delivering more than you promised than disappointing them by falling short.
- Over fraternizing with workmates.
While it is important to have camaraderie in the workplace we sometimes forget to maintain our professionalism.
Sometimes, we develop friendships and relationships with our coworkers that we forget we’re professionals and have to conduct ourselves accordingly within the workplace.
Nothing causes stress more than unnecessary drama in the workplace.
It doesn’t matter how long you’ve been in the business. It is still important to take these 3 simple points that have been discussed and to make sure that you remember them. Managing workplace stress is easy when you know what to do and what not to do. You can reap the benefits of a fruitful workday and still achieve your career goals without compromising your health and well-being.
