Tips to relieve job stress.
Don’t take work home
Leave work where it belongs, otherwise it will occupy time and energy needed for close relationships. Role conflict can cause enormous stress because, while you may see yourself predominantly as the worker, personal connections are what deliever the most satisfaction.
Do keep a stress log
Keep a journal at work of stressful situations and review it at the end of the week, looking for patterns and how you may be contributing to the angst. There could be one issue that stands out -time to brainstorm solutions.
Do speak up
Having issues with co-workers? Talk to them. Avoidance creates more stress and may lead to a blow-up. Take a fair approach and use words such as ” I feel ” to explain the impact they’re having on you, rather than being accusatory (which usually creates defensiveness).
Don’t talk business outside the office
It’s fine to unload about work issues occassionally at home or out socialising, but repetition only feeds the negativity and stress. Instead, make it a priority to take action at work.
