How To Manage Stress At Work

A recent Stanford University study concluded that more than 95% of all disease is created by stress. Considering the average amount of time we spend working, this statistic means that our working environment has the potential to influence both our health and our pre-disposition to illness.

From Striving to Thriving and From Stress to Performance

Increasingly, employees are experiencing stress at work. They may be trying to cope with too much pressure, long hours or rapid change caused by relocation, reorganisation, mergers and acquisitions, job-redesign and downsizing. The nature of employment has also changed, and the idea of a job for life has been replaced by an emphasis on performance, targets and profits.

Stress is now recognised as a valid Health and Safety issues. Litigation is on the increase and employers need to be aware of their legal duties. The Health and Safety Executive has acknowledged the need to enforce measures that reduce workplace stress and to make employers’ responsibilities explicit.

In order to maximise potential and to improve performance it is essential to deal with chronic stress. Employers are realizing that overstressed employees are inefficient employees and are turning to stress management and wellbeing intervention to tackle this problem.

    Such cases of stress lead to depression. Everyone experiences stress. Stress cannot be avoided. No one is perfect. Upon failure, the anxiety of doing it right takes its toll. Though it can be mended, it lies to the person to conquer such problems. Meditation is a good way of going deep within one’s mind to pinpoint the problem and find positive ways to deal with it.

      Hi Yena – thanks for your comment. You’re right, ultimately the responsibility lies with each one of use to look after our own emotional health. But, it would be also helpful if we were taught the importance of this and the consequences from a young age. Many of the most effective approaches are still not really known – although it’s getting better.

      Meditation is a wonderful investment. There are so many techniques so, if you persevere, you can find one that suits. Also numerous studies showing it’s many health benefits. When done regularly it’s certainly a great ‘Pillar of Health’. Is there a particular meditation that worked for you?
