The demands of your job may be putting undue strain on your life and health, especially when coupled with family and other relationship issues. Dr. Ellison is experienced in addressing work-related stress issues that put you at risk for health complications and mental burnout. The most common work-related stressors include:

  • Long work hours
  • Heavy workload
  • Taxing work relationships
  • Physical job demands
  • Management conflicts
  • Lack of adequate job resources
  • Missed opportunities for promotion or recognition

Simply not enjoying your job can be a great source of stress, which can reduce your general happiness and your overall productivity. If you’re facing harassment or discrimination on the job, it can seriously interfere with your health. Ongoing issues like these can make it difficult to go to work each day and can result in long-term issues with depression, anxiety, or suicidal thoughts and behaviors.

What are the signs of work stress?

For some, signs of work stress are obvious when they actively dislike their job or co-workers. For others, signs of stress may not be as evident. Common signs that work is affecting your health include:

  • Burnout
  • Insomnia
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Muscle tension
  • Exhaustion
  • Frequent headaches
  • Constipation or diarrhea

You may also exhibit psychological issues, such as depression, pessimistic attitude, and overall difficulty coping with daily life. These issues can influence your behavior and cause you to become aggressive or isolated about others.

How can I find relief from work stress?

When you’re under a significant amount of stress that disrupts your work and home life, it’s important that you address the issues head-on rather than hiding from them. As stress continues to pile on, you can develop serious health issues that lead to heart attacks or a chronic disease. Too much stress can also trigger behavioral issues that may ultimately cost you your job.

Dr. Ellison offers a safe zone to discuss your specific work issues in depth. Treatment includes resources for reducing stress by making changes to your work and home life. Dr. Ellison can also teach you relaxation practices, such as meditation, to keep you in a positive frame of mind when dealing with on-the-job challenges.

You spend a third or more of your day in a work environment; it’s imperative that you address the issues that overwhelm you. Let the staff of Kintsugi Mind Spa assist you along the way. Book an appointment online or by phone to learn more.
