Overcoming Work Stress is Only a Step Away
Posted by Insightlink on 10/23/14
Stress Should Not be the Norm in our Lives
When we become stressed or feel overwhelmed dealing with our jobs, it is not uncommon to search for ways to feel better. Many people turn to food, alcohol and drugs as a way to boost their spirits short term but these addictions don’t help us combat stress and, long term, they will destroy us, not help us cope.
Our survey results show that it is likely that at least one-quarter of employees in the U.S. is experiencing a high level of dysfunction due to stress and overwork.
What we also learned is that:
In addition, less than one-half of U.S. employees agree that "Senior management encourages employees to have fun at work”.
So we searched our great land to find out how this issue is being addressed in companies across the U.S., which led us to a recent article by Argus Leader, and the story of one group of employees that have found the perfect answer.
"It's nice to step away from your desks, stand up and move around. It helps lower stress, and the team time helps build relationships," says Julia Brown, a 27-year-old executive assistant. She's been walking with the group ever since she was hired four years ago.
The commitment has survived the years because they don’t let anything stop them. If bad weather makes outdoor walking a challenge, they have an indoor route through wide hallways. And to keep it light, they all wear brightly colored walking shoes.
Work stress has a direct impact on employee’s productivity. We recommend you take the time to get insights and understand how your employees are feeling with an employee survey. Walking can’t fix every problem but it is one way to make a positive difference. If you know of other great ways to combat stress, we would love to hear what works in your organization!
