How to manage stress back at work after an injury
If you have had a serious injury or illness and been off work for some time, it can be very stressful to return to the office and get started back in your job. This is because not only will you be dealing with any changes that may have occurred during your time off, but also dealing with the fact that your body may be running a little slower from your injury.
You need to take things a little more slowly when you first return to work so that you don’t risk causing yourself any further injury or illness, and to ensure that you make a complete recovery even once you are working again.
- Take it slow. Be aware that it will take you some time to get back into the swing of things, and don’t push yourself too hard to do well in the first few days back. Take your time and allow yourself plenty of rest as you get started.
- Ask questions. You may have been great at your job before, but having taken some time off you should understand that you may not be quite as up to speed as you were before your time off. If this is the case you should be prepared to ask questions and confirm things before you get started on any task.
- Be honest. Be honest with your employer about your limitations at the moment, and don’t be afraid to let them know if something is too difficult for you. Your employer should understand that it will take time for you to get back to normal, and be happy to help you out as you build back up to your skill level pre-injury.
