It has been long studied and understood that occupational stress contributes to anxiety symptoms. Factors that contribute to these symptoms often include:
1. Little decision making ability over systems in place even if they don’t seem to make sense to you.
2. Interpersonal challenges, working with people who are demeaning, demanding or unpleasant
3. A higher level of work required than resources or time allow.
4.A lack of appreciation from supervisors or management for a job well done
5. Minimal opportunity to give useful feedback for change.
Although we cannot always change the parameters or personalities in the workplace we can learn to manage ourselves differently in the same situation to create a more balanced healthy working life. Learning to understand interpersonal dynamics and alter communication styles can help you create a more positive situation for yourself.
