Stress At Work Getting Worse By The Year
48% Feel as if their stress has increased over the past 5 years. So often co-workers can be two-faced, and this is very uncomfortable for many. An old folk singer said that the times are changing, this couldn’t be truer. We live in a society where people want more done faster. Aside from it being done quickly, people want things done perfectly. The pressure for success is putting a good strain on a lot of people and it’s driving everyone from entrepreneurs and big enterprise employees nuts. It’s important to adapt to the speed of time, but it’s just as important to have a clear mind and to sleep well.
As an employee learn to avoid, STRESS at work, and take things one day at a time.
Keep Your Friends Close
54% said stress has caused them to fight with people close to them.
It’s important to maintain your interpersonal relations with your peers outside of work.
People get caught up with their work so much that they forget about their friends and family members, they end up treating them as secondary figures in their life, as if they didn’t help to get them to their current state.
I know that I’ve been a victim of this. I’ve mistreated some of my friends and family, so at my most vulnerable point, I decided to spaz out and ignore them. Fortunately, I have a good, understanding supporting cast.
So remember, keep your friends close and be well balanced enough to manage work, home and play.
87% of workers are emotionally disconnected from their workplaces.
That number is way too high, don’t you think?
Nearly 90% of people are just disconnected from their workplace. They’re just going through the motions and doing the bare-minimum to get by, collect checks, and go home.
So, aside from being stressed out, people aren’t even connected to their profession well enough to want to be there.
It’s almost like you’re obtaining unnecessary stress, just to make ends meet. This type of thinking needs to change and management needs to do things to better the work environment.
Low Money, Mo’ Problems
76% of people cite money and work as the leading cause of their STRESS.
People are overworked and underpaid. Going back to what was said before, things are getting faster and faster every year.
The amount of stress and the workload people are doing is flat out ridiculous.
Most employers aren’t doing enough to support their talented employees from a financial standpoint. So whenever you hear about those awesome places to work, or those cool offices, it almost seems like a pipe dream.
Try using an employee benefit to assist your employees in reducing stress and improving quality of work, and make your company one of the beat places to work. Remember this benefit can not attached mental health issues as label because then employees will not want to use it. Because it may jeopardize future promotions.
48% reported lying awake at night due to stress.
Sleep is good. We all know this. It feels great to wake up well-rested after a long day at the office. That’s what makes Saturday’s special.
An abundance of stress from work in the daytime can cause you to stay up throughout the night. So when you have those long, grueling days, it’s not helping you out with your leisure and rest time.
I know it may sounds a bit unique, but meditation at work and outside of work can help out big time. You’ll be able to clear your mind for a bit and just get away from it all. We would love to demonstrated some short cuts to make meditations enjoyable and uplifting.
Don’t Hate The Profession
60% of 26,000 workers were so unhappy that they would prefer to choose a new career.
Think about that statistic, more than half of employees in companies from all across the country would rather find a new career than be in their current position.
I think the majority of the blame goes to management for not creating a cool atmosphere for employees. I think having an engaging atmosphere with people that want to be there, creates happiness and a sense of belonging.
Don’t hate the profession, be mad at the situation and do things that’ll make it better.
