Different Stressors at Work

Posted on 27th September 2019

Work is stressful, but it’s normal to feel overwhelmed all of the time, right? No! Your work environment doesn’t need to be a place of stress for you. There are a few things that you can do to make sure that your work stress isn’t too much to handle and doesn’t transfer into your personal life. Keep reading for a few tips that might just make a world of difference…


The Stressors 


Every person and workplace is different, which means everyone's stressors will be different. However, they all tend to stem from similar places. There are a wide variety of things that can cause stress, but there are three main stressors that spring to mind when we think about the workplace.


The Burnout 


You’ve got loads to do and no time to do it. No one likes the idea of not being able to finish tasks or projects they’ve been assigned and no one likes the idea of having to submit lacklustre work due to time constraints. So how do you deal with it? 

  • Take it one step at a time - you can only work as fast as you can 

  • Ask for help if possible 

  • Take a break and breathe 

The Fear 


This is a very common stressor in the workplace and usually stems from a highly demanding management team or target goals. Being made to fear for your job if you underperform is incredibly stressful. Our advice: 

  • Put everything into perspective. Remember what is truly important to you. 

  • Speak to your management team 

  • Meditation. Taking a few moments to breathe and reset will do wonders. 


New Workplace 


You’ve just started a new job or haven’t been there very long, and of course, it’s stressful. You feel like you need to be perfect in everything you’re doing or else people will think poorly of you. That’s a normal response to being in a new environment. But remember, everyone was new at some point or another and they will understand if you make a few mistakes. So: 

  • Don’t be too hard on yourself for minor mistakes 

  • Ask questions 

  • Don’t be afraid to ask for help 


There are a lot of other workplace stressors that we haven’t mentioned here, but if you want to get in touch, we’d be happy to explore your options. Hypnotherapy and stress relief go hand-in-hand, especially when it comes to the working environment.
