Ways to Eliminate Stress and Anxiety at Work

If you have ever held a job in your life, stress is no stranger to you. Even if you love your profession, there are days when you just can’t wait to get home and unwind. Pressures from meeting deadlines on time, meetings, and even answering emails can take a heavy toll on your physical and emotional state.

To prevent it from overwhelming you, here are some things you can do to eliminate stressors in your life:

Track stressors

If work is getting too much for you, you can manage how you deal with it by keeping track of common stressors and how you respond to them. Record what you are feeling and your work environment as well as the colleagues and events involved.

For example you can note down when you raised your voice at someone or when you just had to leave the office for a breath of fresh air. Your notes will help you determine patterns along with your reactions to them.

Maintain boundaries

Just because you see your boss and colleagues every day at work doesn’t mean they should intrude in your personal life. Maintain boundaries by switching off your cell phone when you get home and make time for your favorite hobbies and family. That is the best way to let go of the pressure you feel at work and just unwind.

Plus, build healthy sleeping habits such as limiting coffee before bed and put your phone away at least an hour before you go to sleep. That way your mind will be in a more relaxed state and you will be able to fall asleep faster.

Choose healthy solutions

It can be very tempting to block stress with food, alcohol and other unhealthy choices when you feel that you are about to explode. However, those solutions are temporary at best and can increase your stress in the long run by making you unhealthy.

A better alternative is physical activity such as exercise and yoga. However, you can also de-stress by ensuring that you don’t bring work back home. Take that time to reconnect with family, reading a book and whatever you do, don’t check those emails at home! In fact, try not to sit in front of any screen if you can help it when you get home. That will only re-stimulate your tired brain leaving no room for rest.

Behavioral Based Safety Certification

The best way to eliminate stress and anxiety at work is to change your reaction to it. The Behavioral Based Safety Certification course can help you create healthier work habits and safe work practices. The course is designed to help learners enhance their observation skills and work better with their team mates. It also helps students understand the latest trends that can contribute to overall workplace safety.

If you are in HR, this course is perfect for you since it also covers ethics and compliance.
