It is well known that being stressed at work is extremely unhealthy for both your physical and mental wellbeing.
But, if you are currently stressed at work, be aware that there are steps and procedures to take in order to relieve stress and make the best of your situation. If you battle your stress head-on, you may end up making more costly mistakes in the workplace and, in some cases, suffer accidents at work.
What can I do to reduce the risk of suffering personal injury at work as a result of ongoing stress?
- Exercise more often in order to sharpen your focus and raise your heart rate. It has been proven that aerobic activity is a great way to boost your mood.
- Eat correctly and cut out unhealthy foods. Eat more fruit and veg in order to get the right vitamins and nutrients to keep you staying alert and healthy.
- Ensure you get at least eight hours of sleep every night. Tiredness can leave you even more stressed, while stress alone can cause insomnia. Give your body enough time to relax and replenish itself over night.
