Dealing with stress in the workplace is tough. Companies are demanding their employees to do more with less. People are not sure tomorrow their job will be around. It’s a crazy mess.
The main problem is fear. When you are the breadwinner and your company starts laying off their employees, it can be terrifying. Everyday people are asking themselves, “Am I next?”
The reality is where fear exists, progress stops. One cannot focus and give their best when they are afraid. The funny thing is companies are creating fear in the workplace and they are demanding their team members to perform at their best.
That is so stupid! If employees are going to perform at their best in the workplace, companies must find ways to remove fears for them. Now, I know it’s hard to completely remove fears. But for sure something can be done about it.
Alright, here’s how to eliminate your fear:
I am about to give a very simple solutions. It might sound ridiculous to you. But it works! Try it. Here it is:
Fear is not real. It’s your imagination at work. Something happens, and you start saying yourself a bunch of stuff that never happened. As a result, you begin to experience fear.
Well, guest what? When you are afraid, you are creating undue stress in your life. And that affects every area of you life as well as everyone you deal with.
Question your fears. Question what you are saying to yourself. Then realize you are probably creating what does not exist. If you can grasp what I just said, you will be well on your way to dealing with stress in the workplace.
And finally, I want to leave you with this: If the consequences of what is happening are not death or terminal illness, there’s no reason to continue rehearsing in your it head over and over.
That’s how you can reduce stress in the workplace.
