Work stress has significant health consequences that range from relatively benign (like getting more colds and flus) to potentially serious (such as heart disease and metabolic syndrome)

While stress at work is common, finding a low-stress job is hard (if not impossible). A more realistic approach is to adopt effective coping strategies to reduce stress at your current job. Here are some stress management techniques you can try if you are finding it hard to cope with work stress;

Talk to your supervisor - Employee health has been linked to productivity at work, so your boss has an incentive to create a work environment that promotes employee well-being. Start by having an open conversation with your supervisor about effective plan for managing the stressors you’ve identified, so you can perform at your best on the job

Stay Away From Conflict - Interpersonal conflict takes a toll on your physical and emotional health. Conflict among co-workers can be difficult to escape, so it’s a good idea to avoid conflict at work as much as you can.

Stay Organized - Even if you’re a naturally disorganized person, planning ahead to stay organized can greatly decrease your stress at work. Being organized with your time means less rushing in the morning to avoid being late as well as less hustling to get out at the end of the day. Keeping yourself organized can also mean avoiding the negative effects of clutter, and being more efficient with your work.

Be Comfortable - Another surprising stressor at work is physical discomfort, often related to where you perform most of your daily tasks (such as your desk). Do what you can to create a quiet, comfortable, and soothing workspace.

Forget Multitasking - Multitasking was once heralded as a fantastic way to maximize one’s time and get more done in a day. There is a certain "frazzled" feeling that comes from splitting your focus and it doesn’t work well for most people. 

Develop healthy responses. Instead of attempting to fight stress with fast food or alcohol, do your best to make healthy choices when you feel the tension rise. Exercise is a great stress-buster

Keep Perfectionism in Check - A good strategy to avoid the perfectionism trap is always striving to just do your best and making time to congratulate yourself on your efforts. You may find that your results are better and you’ll be much less stressed at work.

Any job can have stressful elements, even if you love what you do. But when work stress becomes chronic, it can be overwhelming and harmful to both physical and emotional health. You can’t always avoid the tensions that occur on the job. Yet you can take steps to manage work-related stress.
