    Accident at work claim in City of Edinburgh


    Do you need to make an accident at work claim in City of Edinburgh? If you are working towards a deadline then this will naturally be a more stressful time for you than when you are usually working.

    Beating stress when on deadlines

    Most people are easily able to handle this level of stress, as it offers them a challenge which keeps them energised and interested.

    However, if you are on a very tight deadline, or have a lot of work to do, this could become almost too stressful for you. If you are on a tight deadline and there is nothing you can do about it, your best course of action is to manage the stress that you are under.

    • Take some time out. Even if you are on an extremely tight deadline, it is ridiculous for you to try to do everything without any breaks or time for yourself. Stress leads to problems both physically and mentally and it is more important that you are up to the challenge than you work solidly.
    • Ask for help. If you honestly don’t feel that you are coping with the pressures of the deadline, be honest about it and ask for help. It may be possible to take some work away from you or get someone to help, but if you are pretending to be able to cope then no one will do this for you.
    • Ask questions. Make sure that you understand everything you have been asked to do, and if you get lost, ask questions until you do understand. It is far more stressful trying to work things out than it is to just do the task.
    • Be realistic. If you don’t think that you have the time to meet the deadline, then say so sooner rather than later. Working to meet an impossible deadline is only going to cause you more stress and make it less likely that you will be capable of doing what is needed.
