Do you ever feel stressed while at work?

Have you become cynical or critical about work? Do you find it hard to concentrate? Being stressed out isn’t fun! But it’s important to remember that it’s part of a human’s emotional and physiological response. Generally, we feel overwhelmed when the situation's demands are greater than our ability to cope we get stressed.

For example, A Person who is confident and comfortable speaking in public may not worry about giving a presentation, while someone who isn't confident in their skills may definitely feel a lot more stress about the upcoming presentation which further might create performance anxiety.

However, stress isn’t always bad a little bit of stress can mostly help one to stay focused, energetic, and able to meet new challenges in the workplace. It’s what keeps a person on their toes during a presentation or alert to prevent accidents or costly mistakes.

Considering today’s hectic world, the corporate workplace too often seems like an emotional roller coaster. Long hours, tight deadlines, and ever-increasing demands can leave you feeling worried, drained, and overwhelmed. And when stress exceeds your ability to cope, it stops being helpful and starts causing damage to your mind and body on the contrary. Following this, your job satisfaction goes down along with the motivation to work.

Common burnout of corporate workplace stress could be :

  • Lack of control An inability to influence decisions that affect your job — such as your schedule, assignments or workload — could lead to job burnout. So could a lack of the resources you need to do your work.

  • Unclear job expectations If you're unclear about the degree of authority you have or what your supervisor or others expect from you, you're not likely to feel comfortable at work.

  • Dysfunctional workplace dynamics Perhaps you work with an office bully, or you feel undermined by colleagues or your boss micromanages your work. This can contribute to job stress.

  • Extremes of activity When a job is monotonous or chaotic, you need constant energy to remain focused — which can lead to fatigue and job burnout.

  • Lack of social support If you feel isolated at work and in your personal life, you might feel more stressed.

Workplace stress is harmful at times when there are physical and emotional responses that can happen when there is a conflict between job demands on the employee and the amount of control an employee has over meeting these demands.

However, for maintaining a good workplace balance one should establish some work-life boundaries for oneself. Introducing these boundaries will create a balanced work-life relationship. Take time off for hobbies and give importance to your body and mind, self-care releases stress making one more resilient.
