JOB STRESS

The following excerpt is from the self help
psychology book, Be Your Own Therapist.


Job stress is not an ideal name for the phenomenon. We get stressed everywhere. The key is whether we can release the stress, winding up in a state of ease. It has been popular to blame jobstress on outside forces/ people, but if we cannot find ease, then we have a problem. Not everyone gets stuck-in-stress in dealing with my "impossible boss." Perhaps it is my growth opportunity to find a way not to get upset by that boss in the first place.


Because women and men favor different sides of the brain, it is not desirable that equal numbers of each sex be in most job categories. Equal opportunity, however, is HIGHLY desirable.

People get stuck in workstress for a variety of reasons: (1)Many have problems with authority figures. (2)The work is no longer interesting to them. (3)They fear loss of a good health plan or high pay. (4)They have to deal too closely with toxic situations (often requiring dishonesty or lack of integrity) or toxic people.


The key to handling all these stressors is fear. If fear responses can be changed, then the stress will ease and right action will be taken. If you are severely stressed in your job, please find yourself some therapy. Treatment for jobstress and related issues is most often brief.
