Work Pressures

Work-related pressure or stress is common. It tends to be sporadic and fluctuates between mild to severe. More often than not it tends to build over time, becoming more problematic as people’s methods of coping become less effective, which in turn can lead burn out or other illnesses. Some of the causes of stress at work can be:

  • Learning new skills
  • Meeting new people
  • Difficult dynamics between people
  • Too much responsibility
  • Too little responsibility
  • Being undervalued
  • Feeling stuck
  • Feeling uninspired
  • Peer pressure
  • Bullying
  • Feeling isolated
  • Long hours
  • Deadlines
  • Commuting
  • Financial pressures
