Many factors contribute to stress at work. Starting from responsibility and anxiety associated with the possibility of failure to fulfill the set goals, ending with the environment in the team. Today we will discuss the main causes of such phenomena and offer some solutions to combat them!
A heavy workload, lack of understanding from friends or colleagues and too many demands on yourself contribute to panic. If you have an environment where you are working overtime or have to take work home, you are unable to manage your time. Obviously, this is not conducive to an employee feeling good about their employer.
Stress is a major cause of “burnout”. Feelings of helplessness and hopelessness provoke a heightened sensitivity to any form of criticism. So it’s in your best interest to stop panicking for nothing.
Stress directly affects your ability to absorb and process new information, analyze situations and solve issues that require special attention. Under stress, there is a high risk of making a fatal mistake simply by inattention.
In addition to headaches, sleep, vision, and blood pressure problems, stress can negatively affect the cardiovascular, gastrointestinal, and musculoskeletal systems. If you are not feeling well, you will not be able to physically do your job well, even when you genuinely love what you do.
