STRESS MANAGEMENT IN THE OFFICE SETTING
Work related demands can place stress on employees, which in turn can lead to tension in the body and mind, absenteeism, decreased work productivity, depression and anxiety in workers. Many business have begun investing in the health and well being of their employees by offering options for a healthy lifestyle, including some options that can take place right in the office.
By incorporating yoga, breathing and meditation practices, we can learn to relate to stress on the job differently, relieve tension and aches in the body and find more ease in what is the reality of the fast-paced work environment. Taking breaks to invest in healthy stress management at work can begin to change the culture of the workplace to one where the health and happiness of the employees is as valued as the work they produce.
Many companies find that this leads to wonderful benefits for their employees:
- greater stress management ability
- improved health and immune functioning of workers
- decreased absenteeism
- increased productivity, creativity and concentration in employees
- greater energy, stamina and motivation
- improved job satisfaction and morale among employees
