How do you battle workplace stress?


Let’s be honest, most of us will be stressed at work at one time or another, but I’ve found that there are certain factors that need to be in place if I want my working life to be as stress-free as possible.

I’ve found it essential to develop assertive communication skills and a healthy respect for my own time (and ability to focus). With this, it makes it easier to establish clear boundaries with colleagues and clients.

I also need to work towards meaningful and measurable goals and do so in an agency that has clear values and purpose.

  • Do the agency’s values compliment my own?
  • Do I trust the people I work with?
  • Is communication with my manager so good that I can almost predict what they’ll think, say or do in a certain situation?

These factors all contribute to a feeling of safety and security, and when you feel both of these apply to your workplace, daily stress becomes much less of a problem.
