Stress Management Training, Stress Management Speaker
Workplace stress is rarely part of anyone’s job description, but it is unfortunately part of most jobs. It is tough to progress when we are stressed. In fact, we feel stress when we feel we are being hindered from progressing.
Stress is very dangerous, not to mention expensive. Businesses across the U.S. of A. lose $200-$300 billion dollars annually to stress, resulting in loss in productivity (i.e., less progress) and treatment costs.
Effects of stress in the workplace include Absenteeism, Disruptive Outbursts and Tendency to do as little as possible to get by. All reduce productivity and damage an organization’s bottom line.
Plus, many do not have a well-defined boundary between work and home, and end up taking work problems home with us and letting them affect our personal life.
No matter what the circumstance, we still have power over the attitude we take toward it. When we feel stress, we become focused on the pain and not the opportunities to take positive steps.
Stress not only limits our progress; stress can and will kill us —
— if we don’t take action!
- Stress-related problems, according to the American Institute for Stress, are responsible for 75 % to 90 % of doctor visits.
- The American Medical Association says that stress is now the basic cause of over 60% of all diseases and illnesses (cancer, heart problems, etc.).
- A study conducted by the University of London found that unmanaged reactions to stress were more likely to lead to cancer and heart disease than either smoking cigarettes or eating foods high in the bad kind of cholesterol.Often, we invest so much time dealing with stress that we don’t take time to progress.
How to deal with or relate to the stressful stimuli in this high-tech, low-touch world of speed-of-light change is a vital and important topic that desperately needs discussion. To avoid the peaks and valleys of productivity created by high stress levels, we need to know how to balance the urgent demands of work life and personal life. Even when things are going smoothly, the cumulative effects of day-to-day stressful stimuli affect the way people behave.

Virtually no part of the body escapes the ravages of prolonged negative stress. Unfortunately, many of us make up our minds to “get serious” about our physical and mental health only when we become ill, suffer a heart attack, or experience some other form of breakdown.
Often, we invest so much time dealing with stress that we don’t take time to progress.
