Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

In this article, I will discuss some strategies about how to manage stress at your job or occupation. Many people face this today as your work load seems to keep getting bigger and bigger. Many people will find some co-workers difficult to work with which can cause a lot of stress at work. Try to stay clear of co-workers who are lazy and complain about their job all the time. This will bring you down and when you are down, you are less productive and more reluctant to stress and conflict. Try not to be a know it all, people don't like people who think they know everything, as this will lead to conflict.

The first thing you can try to do is avoid conflict if possible. Try to stay away from all the gossip. Another thing you can do is make sure you are on time to your job and do your job to the best of your ability. Just by doing these things, will keep your boss off your back and will decrease some conflict.

If your late all the time and don't do a good job, then you have the stress of the possibility of losing your job. If you work in an office, try to keep things organized. If you need to make phone calls, take a couple hours and make all your phone calls together instead of one here and there. This will save you time. Time management is very important and if you can manage your time well, this can decrease a lot of stress at work.

Other things you can do to decrease stress at work is to take a short walk on your break. This can help you leave off some steam and lift your mood. When you feel well, you will be more productive and this leads to more confidence. The end result will be positive. When you feel great, moral will increase and conflict will decrease.

If you do have a problem at work that is causing you stress and anxiety, discuss the problem and go to the source. Try to handle the problem in a mature, professional manner. Stay calm and approach the source in a positive manner. Try to keep your voice in a low tone and the other person will usually stay calm as well. Then, you can lower your chances of it turning into conflict. Lastly, if your still feeling a lot of stress at work, consider taking a vacation and taking a break. We all need to take time out for ourselves.
