    Something we do in at my job is to take a 10 minute relaxing music break time during our lunch or prep, I am a teacher. That usually helps with all the noise and stress levels. Right now I go to SOothing Hearts

    One manufacturing facility I worked at had an ambulance take someone for emergency at least once a week. I joked they should just park the ambulance there all the time.

    I’ve been working in a call center for 7 months, and it is stressful to handle customers.
    While some complain about same things again and again others get angry for no reason.
    Along with such stress, my salary is very low!! I think I would change my job by April 2021.

    This is a deep issue. As a baseline to comprehend what the underlying causes are cultures that lived exclusively with nature NEVER had stress, depression or suicides. The more we invite man mind elements into our life and go against nature the more these conditions develop.
    The worst is a psychology of unnatural fear. Such as focusing on what could go wrong and if it does you will be punished. This is the entire psychological make up of Health and Safety. It reduces the individual to an inconvenience. Life becomes more about making sure something doesn’t go wrong than focusing on what makes life enjoyable. This is the fundamental root cause of stress. To do this personal responsibility, awareness and free choice is denied and replaced by an authoritative voice. This causes depression. The worst of this is adults supervising children. This means they don’t develop good cognitive strength and become stressed out worriers.
    People then start to doubt more and more their own ability to function. Compounding this is a culture of warnings and alarms so we doubt even our own ability to see and hear. And now we’re living so unnaturally we use carlights in daylight meaning we now collectivity doubt whether we can see. So people now subconsciously are told to worry about daylight.
    This is all scientifically proven and researched. Health and safety as the workforce has told us is Mad. 40% of the British workforce feel they are mad, not just wrong, mad. As a result of policies that are scientifically proven to cause stress, mental illness, and depression being implemented there has been a corresponding rise in all of these things. Until we stop Health and Safety stress will never end.

  13. Angela L on April 21, 2021 at 5:15 pm

    My workplace stress is too much overtime and working too many weekends. I’ve worked weekends for almost a year. Another stressor is too much workload and getting criticized for petty stuff. Like today I was told I had to write my full name on my paperwork and not my initials. I responded with “you are telling me this now after 3 years?” Can’t help me with feeling overworked but can point out I need to write my full name. No good job or anything ever.

    Stress in the workplace is usually caused by the sad little twerps that surround you, whether it be co-worker or boss.

    I will be blacklisted if I leave my job but my job is killing me….tried to talk to those idiots called bosses nothing happened. its been 6 months now I thought I would get used to the job

  23. Ben Rutter on April 21, 2021 at 5:32 pm

    The best solution is to get yourself into a situation as quickly as possible where you don’t depend on your job so completely that walking away isn’t am option. Rather, if you can reduce your debt and spending then you can have a very relaxed attitude towards your job: if this gets too stressful, I’ll walk away in a split second. That immediately empowers you which is almost always the exact opposite of what your employer will want. Never chase promotions, never fear redundancy. Instead, focus your efforts on spending as little as possible so that you don’t need a high salary job. "Don’t let yourself get attached to anything you are not willing to walk out on in 30 seconds flat if you feel the heat around the corner."

    It’s important to identify the root of your stress. For my case, I guess I have to accept the stress and once I do that, feel better

    I had a work peer dreaming up remarks targeting me to simply destroy my will. He’d come over start some small talk then enter the remark. I eventually would just grab some headphones on put them on to ignore him. Worked great!

    "Creating the Action Plan," is where a lot of people, including myself, get hung up. There seems to be an incredible lack of mentorship in society these days. Someone you can aspire to be like that’s close to you such as a supervisor or other person you interact with frequently. Someone who coaches/guides you to become better than you are … most people in positions of authority simply make demands but sacrifice no personal investment to mentor subordinates to achieve said demands. Also, I generally don’t "see" a path to achieve change, …

    I worked for a company that kept adding more and more work to my already large workload, which was very stressful trying meet deadlines. I chose to except it for a for 6 months and then i finally removed myself as my Supervisor wasn’t willing to hire anyone else to help with the high demands. Yes I would do it again only this time I I would remove myself right away as the stress was not worth it at all. I learned that stress is very bad for you and to avoid it when possible.

    Coworkers. Coworkers are a source of stress.
    Of course, you can never say that because you’ll be labeled the problem person.
