The difference between a stressful situation and a challenging situation is our perception of; our ability to manage it; the level of control we feel we have over it; the meaning and significance it has for us.
According to MIND “45 million working days are lost each year through anxiety and stress-related conditions.” Around 1 in 5 people suffers the effects of workplace stress and government research suggests over half a million people a year become ill as a result.
Prolonged and constant stress can cause raised blood pressure, heart attacks, headaches, back pain, and even irritable bowel syndrome.
Each person experiences unique triggers for stress and each has a different limit before stress becomes an issue. Some common triggers are; lack of a work life balance, coping with change or loss, managing work and personal relationships and public speaking.
