Because we’re all so busy in our daily lives how often do we simply accept that stress is part of just being human? Once we accept it, do we then instantaneously resign ourselves to the fact that we just have to live with it?
Does it have to be like that though?
I do a lot of work in the corporate sector and there seems to be an underlying kind of ‘expectation’ that we have to go to work, get our heads down, crack on and get the job done. I appreciate that things are slowly changing with corporate well-being now a major topic for conversation but the workplace is still very often a place of stress.
It’s a difficult one to solve. On the one hand, the world is ever-changing and there are enormous pressures on Board of Directors and workers alike to keep evolving and delivering results but, on the other hand, are we really creating environments in which to work where stress can be reduced and, more importantly, are we really aware of just how stress is really affecting us?
We can’t see the immediate impact of stress. It’s not like falling over and cutting your knee where, in such an example, you are left with visible damage to your body.
So, where do we go for help?
In this article, the company has employed the services of celebrities to “nudge” people towards asking one more question when they go for a medical check up. And that question is focussed around where to go for help to reduce stress.
It’s one thing knowing that stress is a long-term killer. It’s another to do something about it. What a great idea therefore to simply speak to your doctor the next time you go for a medical check-up and see how they can help. (And if you’re in the workplace, what would happen if you equally asked your line manager for help as well?)
