Prevent Job Stress

Design jobs to provide meaning, stimulation, and opportunities for employees and volunteers to use their skills.

Clearly define roles and responsibilities.

staff members opportunities to participate in decisions and actions affecting their jobs.
Improve communications — reduce uncertainty about career development and future employment prospects.

Provide opportunities for social interaction among staff members.

Establish work schedules that are compatible with demands and responsibilities outside the job.
Even if we feel secured in a habituated life, the truth remains that changing with the times makes one's position more secure. In today's business climate, you must continually be prepared for changes to avoid stress and survive in the competitive world.
Find and protect whatever time you get to refresh, re-energize and re-motivate yourself. Spend quality time with your family. This can be an excellent source of emotional and moral support
Avoid giving in to alcohol, smoking and other substance abuses while under constant stress.
Develop positive attitudes towards stressful situations in life. Give up negative mental traits such as fear, anger and revengeful attitudes, which actually germinate stress. Try to revert to holistic relaxation and personal growth techniques such as meditation, breathing and exercises, to remodel your lifestyles.
