Work related stress can affect your health

Stress is the body’s response to real or perceived threats. Today most of our problems
cannot be solved with a fight or flight response. We have to work through our problems
and find constructive solutions.
Stress is about reactions people have to the situations they face. These reactions are
not the same from person to person. Some stress is expected and can be a positive
force in our lives. In fact, it is often what provides us with the energy and motivation to
meet our daily challenges both at home and at the workplace. This type of stress
response is what helps you “rise” to a challenge and meet your goals such as
deadlines, sales or production targets, or finding new clients. Some people would not
consider this challenge a type of stress because, having met the challenge, we are
satisfied and happy.
Feelings of negative stress usually increase when people believe the demands of a
situation are greater than their ability to deal with it. Stress may prevent them from being
productive. In some cases, people avoid dealing with a problem entirely, which may
make the situation worse and increase stress to them and others around them.
When under a lot of stress, some may find it hard to concentrate, make decisions, and
feel confident. Many people experience physical sensations like sweating, a racing
heart, or tense muscles.
Stress can also have a long-term impact on physical health. Headaches and fatigue are
common symptoms of being under stress. People are also more likely to get sick or
experience a decline in their health.
