Stress and anxiety are both a normal part of people’s lives. We all experience both of these feelings, but for some people they can become completely overwhelming. Stress happens when you are faced with high demands but don’t feel like you can cope. Anxiety works in a similar way, but mostly is made up of overthinking and worrying about situations that might not even happen, as it is worrying about the unknown, the future. Mismanaging these can cause a huge emotional toll on the mind and body, so it is important to understand coping methods and techniques to prevent these situations from escalating. Learning to manage these will hep you, your team and service users to be much more effective.
In today’s high-stress work environments, more and more people are suffering leading to over 15 million work days lost to sickness annually.
Ensuring your team has the skills and knowledge to manage their own stress and anxiety whilst being able to cascade this knowledge to clients & service users can greatly improve the overall effectiveness of your organisation and can contribute to more rapid progression through services.
