Dealing with stress

How we view stress can change the effect that it has on us. By thinking of stress as a friend with important advice as opposed to an enemy will help you to learn about yourself and change coping strategies positively.

Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) offers techniques and tools that can be useful in reducing stress. The use of NLP helps people to increase their ability to cope successfully with stressful situations and reduce the adverse effects of major stressors such as chronic stress caused by their occupation.

Occupation stress

Stress is a common condition and in the field of organisational behaviour, job stress is a very important issue. This type of stress has a direct impact on employees’ professional performance and levels of job satisfaction. Human emotions are influenced by many factors such as our environment.  For instance; the type of occupation and work environment of a person may be among the major stressors that create chronic stress for that individual. This job stress is highly interrelated with the cost of healthcare in the 21st century and causes, for example, absenteeism due to sickness, physical mobility issues and mental health conditions. In particular, professions concerned with preserving life are very stressful jobs such as law enforcement, fire and rescue services, emergency medical services and mental health practitioners. These professionals experience high levels of stress because of the circumstances of their work environment and the higher levels of skills needed to respond promptly and accurately to urgent situations.
