HOW STRESSED ARE YOU AT WORK? KNOW YOUR STRESS SCORE

In this article, we want to share with you a Stress Scale that we have devised to help you get an idea about the extent to which you might be feeling stressed at work. We spend a considerable amount of our time being at work and when work becomes a stressor, it can impact us significantly and even spill on to other parts of our life. We hope that this Stress Scale also draws your attention to the not-so-obvious signs of stress that you might be experiencing.

Reset your focus at work

RESETTING YOUR FOCUS AT WORK

When you are upset, tired or stressed, it becomes difficult to focus at work. You are more vulnerable to distractions and everything takes twice as long to do.

“I have been going through a difficult time since the past couple of days. I am shifting to a new house and there are soooo many things to take care of. It is very stressful and it is creating a tense family atmosphere as well. There are projects to finish at work but I find my mind drifting to these problems. It is becoming really difficult to concentrate at my job. My personal problems are starting to get the better of me. It’s affecting my work now! I don’t know what to do about it…”

– Mr.K.L, Senior Manager.

“It’s affecting my work.” Most of us have used this line at some time; generally, when something is going wrong in our personal life and it is starting to affect our productivity at work. It could be a fight with a friend. A neighbour who is causing you unnecessary trouble. Or like Mr. K.L, a tense family environment.

We feel stressed and our mind seems in disarray. It becomes difficult to focus on the task at hand. You don’t feel like working and you struggle to make it through the day.

It’s true that today, work pressures have mounted tremendously. You may have a lot to pack into each day.
