Dealing with stress at working life is a big challenge for both individuals and for organizations. Organizations often face a very high cost for inefficiency, conflicts and wrong decisions by working people because of the stress in their life.
Stress is the reason that individuals cannot access and use their potential and intelligence at peak, for an effective, successful and happy life. Physiological or biological stress is simply a response of an individual to a stimulus that disturbs one’s physical or mental equilibrium. A stressful event can trigger the “fight-or-flight” response, causing hormones such as adrenaline and cortisol to surge through the body.
A little bit of stress, known as “acute stress,” can be exciting—it keeps us active and alert. But long-term, or “chronic stress,” can have detrimental effects on health. You may not be able to control the stressors in your world, but you can alter your reaction to them.
Stress management is essential to avoid the negative effects of stress to one’s health and work performance. It includes techniques in understanding the causes, learning how to relax or control your responses, being mindful or aware of your own body and knowing how to handle stress.
Through stress management, especially experiential active techniques, one may understand how to manage his response, control his emotions and maintain overall well-being.
