Stress Management: Issues in the Workplace
Most people who work in the business world, have a career or own a business experience some amount of work-related stress. The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health reports that job-related stress is associated with health complaints, illnesses or serious diseases. If you have repeated experiences of stress, you may have physical pains or problems that have manifested in your life.
The pressure to do well and succeed in the work environment can be very stressful. This constant pressure can impact your emotional and physical well-being. Because we are not supposed to appear “weak” at work, we tend to deny any negative emotions we are feeling and pretend that everything is OK. You may even believe that if you ignore it, the problem will go away.
Think of something stressful that happened in the office or at work. When you think of that event, what emotion comes up for you? If what you are feeling is negative, then the energy of those unresolved emotions is still stuck in your body. Those unresolved emotions create self-defeating thoughts or behavior patterns which impact your ability to perform better at work.
Some of the Common Issues that Create Stress in the Work Environment Include:
- The pressure to perform
- Self-doubt and confidence issues
- Negative self-talk and the inner critic
- Fear of speaking up
- Conflict in the workplace
- Dealing with criticism
- Fear of rejection
- Competition over job promotions
- Test anxiety
- Being fired, laid-off or experiencing a job restructure
- Feeling overwhelmed
- Fear of public speaking
- The stress related to job interviews and performance reviews
- Dealing with difficult co-workers, toxic bosses or demanding customers
- Lack of motivation
- Fear of failure
- Feeling stuck or resisting change
- Overcoming lifestyle addictions (Sugar, Coffee, Fingernail biting, Alcohol and Drugs)
Can you relate to anything on that list? You are not alone. We all deal with fears and negative thinking at one time or another. These negative emotions are often traced back to events that happened in our childhood. Life experiences that were emotionally damaging for the child can create self-defeating patterns in the adult.
You can’t change the stressors at work but you can change how you respond to them.

You can transform those suppressed emotions that are limiting your ability into improved business success.
