Common sources of work stress

Certain factors tend to go hand-in-hand with work-related stress. Some common workplace stressors are:


  1. Low salaries
  2. Excessive workloads
  3. Few opportunities for growth or advancement
  4. Work that isn’t engaging or challenging
  5. Lack of social support
  6. Not having enough control over job-related decisions
  7. Conflicting demands or unclear performance expectations
  8. Taking steps to manage stress

**Track your stressors - Keep a journal for a week or two to identify which situations create the most stress and how you respond to them. Record your thoughts\, feelings\, and information about the environment\, including the people and circumstances involved\, the physical setting, and how you reacted.**

Develop healthy responses - Instead of attempting to fight stress with fast food or alcohol\, do your best to make healthy choices when you feel the tension rise. Exercise is a great  stress-buster. Yoga can be an excellent choice\, but any form of physical activity is beneficial. Also make time for hobbies and favorite activities.

Establish boundaries - In today’s digital world\, it’s easy to feel pressure to be available 24 hours a day. Establish some work-life boundaries for yourself. That might mean making a rule not to
check email from home in the evening, or not answering the phone during dinner.
