How to Reduce Stress Levels

It's been estimated a third of all new incidences of ill health is the result of work-related stress. If you're stressed at work, it's time to invest in a little stress management.

Managing stress is a top priority for charities such as the Samaritans. In fact the charity believes stress is an underlying cause for emotional and physical illness. So much so that in 2009 it launched the Samaritans' Stress Down Day. The charity believes anyone who feels they need to combat stress should seek support, share their problems and invest in stress relief techniques – a simply stress ball is an affordable and effective form of stress relief.

Troubled Times – Financial Worries

Reducing stresshas never been so crucial. Job security, pensions, savings and mortgages are all triggering huge financial stress in the UK. Stress is a part of life. But how do you know when you need stress relief? There's a list of questions the Samaritans advises you ask yourself to ascertain whether you need to seek out help:

  • Is your self esteem low?
  • Do you feel angry or impatient with people close to you?
  • Do you know how to deal with stress?
  • Are you tearful over little things?
  • Are you feeling isolated from those around you?
  • Is insomnia a problem?
  • Do you ever have panic attacks or a knotted stomach?
  • Are you low in energy or generally unenthusiastic?
  • Do you know how to cope with stress?

If you answered yes to the majority of these questions it's time to seek out stress relief techniques. It's important you get a handle on stress in the workplace, the Health and Safety Executive estimates 13.5m working days are lost to work-related stress and anxiety. Stress can lead to excessive alcohol consumption, erratic eating habits, and sleepless nights, all of which have a profound impact on our health, which is why organisations like BUPA back the Stress Down Day to help raise awareness of the importance of stress relief.

Fight Back 

If you are racked by anxiety or stress, it can impact on your ability to function effectively, without effective stress relief, you can find yourself headed for a breakdown. Some stay stress is important to achieve in the workplace, but it's about getting a balance. According to author Daniel Goleman who wrote Emotional Intelligence: “Stress makes people stupid.” Stress interferes with how we perform, making us give up psychologically before we've even begun – it's time to fight back and incorporate stress relief into your everyday life.
