Don't Let Stress Wear You Out


Expecting too much and overworking too much is a very potent stress trigger. Mr Lucas is a human resource executive at a MNC company. He was involved with too much workloads and duties and did not know how to reject additional works and tasks. Mr Lucas simply felt anxious almost every day. His heart beats faster and he experienced heavy breathing. To cope with his stress, Mr Lucas turned to cigarettes and alcohol, which did not help him much but only increased his stress levels. Eventually, he quitted his job and is currently unemployed.

According to research by numerous psychotherapists and medical professionals, some of the emotional symptoms that a person under stress may exhibit are poor focus or concentration, mood swings and a feeling of rejection. On the other hand, physical symptoms are like tightness in chest and having tension headaches. And behavioral symptoms are like indulging more on alcohol and smoking, overeating which causes one to gain weight or loss of appetite causing one to lose weight, and withdrawing from loved ones and friends. He

or she may also be overwhelmed by negative thoughts such as "Why everyone dislike me!" or "Why am I such a failure in life!"




While moderate level of stress can motivate one at work, excessive stress, like in Mr Lucas' case, can result in disinterest in work, and eventually, a burnout. Nonetheless, a certain level of stress is still important in helping one to push further and improve their performance and work. In addition, moderate amount of stress can help in increasing efficiency and productivity. However, if you do not manage your stress levels properly, it may lead to negative consequences such as a decrease in performance levels.


Having said so, we must understand that stress is unavoidable and it is a part and parcel of life. Hence, it is important for us to find ways to manage stress. Basically, it helps to know certain stress reduction techniques and stress management techniques to help you deal with stress such as reducing outside demands on yourself or by increasing your own ability to cope with stress. For example, simply prioritize your tasks and duties according to how important are they. Place more focus on the truly important ones rather than concentrate on too many things at a time.




It also helps if you can maintain a healthy lifestyle by exercising regularly, eating healthily, avoiding bad habits like drinking and smoking, getting adequate amount of quality sleep and rest and making time to indulge in things that you enjoy daily.


However, in cases when your stress is really too much to tolerate, seek professional advice immediately by visiting a counsellor, psychologist or medical doctor.


A typical consultation will do an assessment of your stress level scale, an assessment of your emotional and biological disposition to stress. In addition, there will also be a review test of what are some of the stressful incidences and events in your life. This is to find out what are the possible causes of your stress which are significant to assist you managing your stress properly. A certified health professional can help to advise you accordingly on some stress reduction techniques and ways to manage stress.


Some Good Suggestions To Manage Stress:


  • Enrol in stress management talks, workshops and programmes.
  • Identify the stressors and deal with them one by one.
  • Share your problems with your counsellor, close friends or loved ones.
  • Simply focus on things that you have achieved for the day instead of focusing on unfinished tasks.
