I came across this InfoGraphic and thought this should be a nice way to start the near year for all us. Work Stress has been a constant cause of anxiety and tension in everybody’s life which needs to be managed effectively and never let it ruin your personal life.
For many workers the holiday season brings with it additional stresses, including deadlines that come with the end of the year.
“The holidays can be an especially busy time for many workers, who are trying to balance business priorities with personal demands,” says Max Messmer, chairman of Accountemps, a staffing firm.
For additional tips on how to manage workplace stress, check out the infographic below from BetterWorks, an employee-rewards network for small and medium-size businesses.
I like the subject of your post, Praveen, but I’m not crazy about the infographic. 1) they misspelled exercise 2) talk therapy, in my opinion, is the best antidote for stress (see the blogger Everyone Needs Therapy – she’s excellent) 3) it seems very male, with that male figure in the middle.
It is a great topic. Would like to hear your personal thoughts on how you decrease stress. I am a big fan of yoga myself, though not necessarily just for stress. Keeps my back in whack (as opposed to out of whack).
Leora – Glad you left your true thoughts on this post. I always welcome criticism and no wonder this infographic has its issues as rightly pointed out by you.
I am not sure if you are aware, but we follow something called as “pranayama” which allows you to control your breathing. I follow that religiously and it helps me keep a level headed conscience about myself at home and work.
Oh yes, being a typical “Type A” person I work extremely hard and feel the effects that stress can take on my body. I have learned to take mini breaks and to also use holistic healing methods like Yoga, breathing exercises, meditation, aroma therapy and my favorite, massage.
Justin – I am sure all those stress relieving techniques will surely help one effectively. As I was mentioning to Leora earlier, there are some misspelled words in the infographic, but it conveys the overall purpose of the topic. Thanks for stopping by.
Great infograph, i think some of these methods i need to watch out for. Im always over working and not getting much rest and get some of those symptoms.
hey, you have written very well that how to reduce stress. These days stress is the major factor why people are surrounded by so many problems
You really have shared that I needed. Nowadays, stress is the foremost reason for all diseases.
You really shared what I needed Stress is the main cause of all illnesses these days.
Great tips! I found running to be my biggest stress buster. It not only reduced my stress levels but also gave me a clarity about my personal and professional life. I was a second degree Reiki practioner but stopped doing it out of laziness, though use it sometimes when my wife or son are in pain, it works like magic in relieving pain.
