Stress is what really keeps you on your toes to avoid some costly mistakes in any workplace environment. But when the stress exceeds your body capability, it ends up being helpful and starts causes severe damage to your body – as well as it does to your job satisfaction.

Pressure to meet some certain work expectations
Lack of control over your work time
Pressure to always perform at any given task.

Signs that you are having work-related stress

When you feel the negative effect of stress, a lot of negative things come into play. Some of it might include;

Low concentration
Problems with your sleep
Fatigue
Loss of sex drive
Using of alcohol and drugs to cope.



Steps to prevent unnecessary stress at work

1. Manage your Expectations

You don’t need to expect much from everybody because no one is perfect. People should be clear about your expectation from them. Your subordinates, committee members, and etc make sure they are clear about what you want, when and how you want it done. This will help prevent unnecessary misunderstanding between you and them

Let Go of Control

If you are someone who thinks that no one else can handle smaller tasks better than you, then it is time to let go of that idea. If done, you could save lots of stress by simply learning how to let go. It isn’t a must that one person can perform the entire task related to his job. It is has been proven that effectiveness comes into play when you concentrate on your core and leave the rest to others.

Quit Procrastination

Staying and getting things done helps your winning mentality, and reduces stress at work. Procrastination comes as a result of facing a task you would prefer not to do. Instead of procrastinating, it is imperative you give out a portion of the project to someone who would execute it. Either way, make sure you get it done first.

You can always say “NO”

A lot of people have difficulty turning down requests at the workplace, and this is one of the major causes of work-related stress. To reduce stress at work, you should learn to pick up projects, tasks, or any role that gets thrown at you. For projects outside your job description, if it wouldn’t help you achieve your career goals, be sure to politely decline. Then you can move to something in line with your career objectives.

Make Out Time for Exercise

One of the exercises required is the aerobic exercise. It helps to increase your heart rate and make you sweat. It is one of the most effective exercises to lift your mood, relax your body and mind, and as well as sharpen your focus.

There are other one thousand and one ways to reduce stress at work, but be sure to find the right balance. I will list out other ways in brief;

Minimize sugar and refined carbs
Learn to prioritize and organize
Resist perfectionism

Take a time off

When you think that all the above methods aren’t working, just learn to take some time off your busy schedule, and everything would surely bounce back to normal. A bit of stress is good, but when the body becomes overwhelmed by it, you really have to find a way to reduce stress at work.

Ok this one too is for me as I'm a workaholic and I'm constantly stressed. Buh what I do to reduce stress and recover myself is entitling myself to weekend travels and Sunday night wine grin.
Sure everyone needs to adopt coping mechanisms for stress as stress can among other things also predispose you to weight gain, diabetes, hypertension, altered menstrual cycle, infertility and early aging.
Some other ways we can cope with stress are music and dance sessions, swimming (highly effective), video games, evening strolls, chocolates , red wine (non-alcoholic as i dont encourage alcohol) and the sweet one, Sex.
