Stress Management in the Workplace: Howto Identify Your Stress Causers and Manage them

August 8, 2023

How do you manage stress at work? 

Whether your work is remotely based, hybrid, or part-time, you’ll agree that stress is an issue to come by with as long as you are engaged in activities that are beyond required. 

Work does not necessarily have to give you stress, but that is when you are well planned and organized, and every team member takes their time as it should. Stress causers most of the times are loophole, jobs not well done, failed projects, pressing deadlines, and other issues regarding getting the job done. 

But despite all, knowing the issues, or let me say stress causers, will go a long way to help you combat stress itself. 

So how do you identify your stress causer?

To know what triggers your stress, you must first be able to

• Self-Reflection: Take some time to reflect on your daily experiences and emotions. Journaling can be helpful in this process. Write down situations where you felt stressed and note what was happening, who was involved, and how you reacted. Look for patterns or common themes that may be contributing to your stress.

• Physical and Emotional Symptoms: Pay attention to your body and mind. Stress can manifest in various ways, such as headaches, muscle tension, irritability, anxiety, or sleep disturbances. When you notice these symptoms, try to identify potential triggers or stressors that might be responsible for them.

• Work Environment: Analyze your workplace and job responsibilities. High workloads, lack of support, challenging relationships with colleagues or supervisors, or a poor work-life balance can all be stressors.

It should go without saying that you need to pay attention to other parts of your life that may be draining, such as relationships, finances, habits, or even your general lifestyle. Give yourself the time to identify your stress causer so you know the right treatment to take.
