Help for work related stress


Stress in the workplace has become such a commonly accepted concept for many working people it is easy to forget how damaging it can be. Ongoing stress may be a contributing factor to short and long-term health problems and it can also seriously impair the quality of a person’s life, causing psychological problems such as anxiety or depression.


What is work related stress?


Most people experience challenges within their job and some level of pressure at work is to be expected from time to time. However, if you feel as if work is taking over your life and that you cannot relax or enjoy yourself when you’re away from the workplace, it may be that your job is causing you stress.


Stress at work can be caused by a number of factors; these include bullying, discrimination, poor relationships with colleagues, poor time management or communication, an overly heavy workload, worries about job stability and lack of support from your employer. Sometimes the stress may be caused accidentally e.g. poor planning by your managers resulting in more work for you, or deliberately in the case of work place bullying, harassment or discrimination.


What are the symptoms of stress?

Common symptoms that can occur as a result of workplace stress include:
• Feeling anxious, irritable, tearful or angry
• Poor concentration and forgetfulness
• A feeling of heaviness, feeling that there is always something you should be doing
• Loss of interest in activities you previously enjoyed, turning down social invitations etc
• Fatigue or exhaustion
• Frequent headaches
• Sleeping disturbances/insomnia
• Skin problems such as adult acne, rosacea, flare ups of eczema or psoriasis
• Irritable bowel syndrome symptoms
• Eating too much or not enough – unexplained weight gain or weight loss
• Over reliance on caffeine, cigarettes or alcohol
• Repetitive nervous movements such as tics, nail biting, scratching
