The 21st century with an economic uprising and downfall has brought great level of work load on the workers. Every employee in any company is expected to perform extremely well. With this notion of giving hundred percent output, several workers and significantly all the workers and employees are facing stress, anxiety and at times depression. It happens when the person is unable to meet the demands of boss or his seniors. Job stress in today's lifestyle is so common and hardly anyone can escape from it.
In extremely over busy and overwhelmed schedules of employees, it is merely impossible for them to maintain a steady focus on their work for the whole day. When the chase behind time and money doesn't fetch them the desired output, it leads to stress. When the boss isn't appreciating your work and is unhappy with your growth rate, it leads to stress. The workload of thirty projects per day leaves the employee in stress.
There are many causes behind the job stress employees face. First and foremost is the job insecurity. It is important for a person to earn for him, his family for their basic necessities. And, with the responsibility to earn enough to feed your children, a person tends to build up much insecurity, which leads to job stress. Always thinking about consequences is the major reason. Secondly, the major reason behind job stress is the performance and how perfectly you work. When the perfectionism either doesn't gives the desired output or is not rewarded, both reasons of the performance level stress the employee.
In order to overcome the job stress, the first fundamental requirement is to start working harder. Instead of reacting or breaking down because of such situations, you need to cope up with them by acting. All the efforts you can put to bring perfectionism in work bring the appreciation and reward. This can only happen when a person leaves all the insecurities and just play his part. Secondly, the need of time management and scheduling the tasks according to the priority are important. The productivity of the task depends on your effectiveness and efficiency. Prioritising the first things first, according to the required time to put in the task, is the fundamental tool to perform well, which would gradually increase your performance and growth rate. Over-committing things, beyond your packed schedule would never be favourable.
In order to perform well, one needs to be his own critic. Nobody else can judge a person better than himself. The effort you have put, and the output you are delivering is best known to you. Keep an eye on the work output and check if it matches your skills and talent. If you think that your level of work is much more than the output, there is the answer to your low performance. Taking responsibility for your work would improve your level of stress. Another way to reduce stress is to be emotionally strong. An employee needs to have qualities like self awareness, self-management and relationship-management. In order to reduce job stress, it is the utmost need to keep calm even in stressful situations. Losing calm would lead you in difficult situations.
Cultivating a friendly atmosphere at workplace helps employees to interact with each other and helps in reducing workplace stress and overload. Even if the job stress continues, figure out your perspective about the job. Do you really feel happy and are satisfied with the job? The answer would depict the reason. If the job really makes you happy, then it's just the stress in your own head. You need to consult a counsellor for help.
