What is stress and its common signs?
Common Signs of Stress
The HSE defines stress as “the adverse reaction people have to excessive pressures or other types of demand placed on them”.
There are so many factors that may contribute to feelings of stress at work. The relentless pressure, not enough time or people to do the work, lack of recognition for work achievements, eating more or less than usual, poor relationships with colleagues, not feeling valued or nurtured.
The six main contributors of stress at work:
You aren’t able to cope with the demands of your job
You have no control over the way you do your work
You don’t receive enough information or support
You are having trouble with relationships at work, or are being bullied
You don’t fully understand your role and responsibilities
The pace of change in your organisation makes you feel anxious
