Any job can have stressful elements, even if you love what you do. Some stress at work is normal, however excessive stress can obstruct your productivity and impact your physical and emotional health. Paramount is your ability to deal with this stress, this ability can mean the difference between success and failure.
There are situations you can’t control in your work environment, but that doesn’t mean you’re powerless—even when you’re stuck in a problematic situation. Finding ways to manage stress isn’t about making huge changes or rethinking career ambitions, but rather about focusing on the things that are within your control.
Stress at work can be defined as the harmful physical and emotional responses that occur when the requirements of the job do not match the capabilities, resources, or needs of the worker. Stress at work can lead to poor health and even injury.
The concept of stress at work is often confused with a challenge, but these concepts are not the same. Being challenged can energize us psychologically and physically, and it can motivate us to learn new skills and leads to mastery of our jobs. When a challenge is met, we feel energized and satisfied. Thus, challenge is an important ingredient to be healthy and productive at work.
A healthy work environment is one where the pressures on employees are relevant to their abilities and resources, to the amount of control they have over their work, and the support they receive.
