Using Workplace Stress To Your Advantage
Posted

As an employee, how do I channel workplace stress to my advantage?


Statistics show that 40% of employees state that their jobs are stressful, and 25% view their job as the number one stressor in their life.  Prevent yourself from becoming a statistic by incorporating these tools:

  • Take a break during the day. Professionals need an occasional time-out to recharge their batteries.
  • Ask for input.  Even bad news is better than no news. Candid conversation will prevent yourself from drawing your own conclusions.
  • Consider job sharing or telecommuting to prevent a strict 40-hour schedule from feeling like a prison sentence.
  • Talk with employers about personal and professional goals so they can help plan your future together.
  • Have some fun!  Coordinate social interaction to balance the work.
