Stress and pressures of work .. human challenge and fuel success

   If I get to that I was happy, and then when they realized what they want, they return to the starting point, and asking for more. I know a man did everything in his power to marry a certain woman, and is now trying to get rid of them. And there is a friend who wanted to have a child, now complains about his three children. But the truth is that this is the nature of human beings, taking into account that the tension may be useful to a certain extent, then it becomes deadly, and this tension is useful examples:

– A hard-working manager until the end of the project in time, of course, face the stress, and he has to accumulate work pressures, but this kind of stress helps him to finish his work on time.

– Student Nerd diligently till succeed in the exam, he Vigil at night, and wake up early to Nerd This kind of stress is assisted to achieve the certificate to seek it.

Some people are full of stress practicing sports such as boxing, wrestling,or  skiing  over ice, but they enjoy it, and make them enjoy life.

“Tension does not kill the happiness in your life, on the contrary, tension helps to achieve”
Dr.. Peter J.hanson

  And stress can affect people of altered their hobby, and their job, and their environment. The each one of us has been the victim of tension in the stage of his life, but when he reaches this tension range, it leads to frustration and anger, anxiety and high blood pressure and headaches and heart attacks and other deadly diseases.

In 1977, the International Science Foundation in the United States study found that stress is one of the main problems that affect our daily lives, and it can lead to mental deficiencies, physical, social, and it causes the loss of $ 10 million a year is spent on hospital beds, days without work, compensation, and cases of premature deaths.

– Which is better: too little or too much:

               “Life is not just to be alive, but to be in good health,” Marshall

Is the tension useful or harmful to us? Sees D.peter j.hanson in his book fun tension : “very little and too much, both of which harm in,” one of directors and who works late every day lost his health, his family, and his personal life, will become nervous Like the manager who It works, and the boss does not stimulated and  heaviness his a lot of work.

Tension over-limit reduces the productivity of the individual, and makes him lose focus and confidence in himself, which affects his feelings, and his state of mind, and thus may cause the incidence of certain fatal diseases.

The tension is very little, the person who used to work all his life, then retire without work, he feels the loss of confidence and lack of self-esteem, which may cause fatal diseases, if this person could not in two years to work in any activity that restored some tension required and useful to him, that in the opinion of D.hanson.

If the tension of comparable gravity as a reality in our lives, so why should not people trying to put him in mind?

Why do people deny that they do not they are going through? And why they think it is something that affects others, and they do not suffer?

It is not in our power to remove the tension, but we can control it and learning how we can eliminate the bad effects. This goal of this post is to be able to control the tension, and strategies are made in defense of yourself. You must first identify the tension, and to recognize that  located underneath.

So you need to be your conscious mind aware of the order, so that the unconscious mind can defend you against stress, and will be so in a way mechanism. This way you will be able to enjoy a happy life because you will be subject to tension, employed to achieve your goals, and access to success.

– The causes of tension:

“There is no tension in the world, but there are people who are thinking about things of concern”Dr. Wayne

The reasons for the tension of altered attitudes and circumstances, could be the reason lies in your own life and your working conditions, your health, or financial circumstances.

In a study of 300 managers in 12 different company, Dr. John H.howard decided: “that there are four major characteristics that can lead to tension when executives”

1 – the deficit:

It may feel a managers of helplessness and it is not about him and do not force when they can find the right solution to a problem, but he can not because of company policies to make a decision himself, but he has to wait until his superiors issue a decision, which creates inside the sense of frustration and helplessness, and thus the tension.

Herodotus great philosopher said: “The most common types of pain when bitter one, is to have a lot of knowledge, but it does not have power.”

2 – doubt and uncertainty:

Usually problems encountered working non-specific, which may cause a kind of uncertainty, when the Director that a decision taken based on the information is uncertain, or the work is a clear policy, it would be difficult in front of him because to take the appropriate decision and the right, causing tension.

3 – Stress at work:
Of natural range Action Director between 55 hours to 65 hours a week, and most presidents are focusing only on the results, regardless of the number of hours worked by the Director, this stress at work creates tension, and may also cause some problems and difficulties in the life of Director Personal.

4 – urgency:
Mentions d. Howard: “The manager is doing different every seven minutes on average,” Projects or urgent reports to cause a lot of pressure on the manager, leading to a sense of tension.
And also he says: “The poor management is the main cause of tension in the life of the manager, if the boss lacks the necessary skills and the ability to plan, nor does it settle opinion, and can not deal with others.”

in addition to the previous four reasons cited by d. Howard, I see that there are seven other reasons:

1 – lack of power:
When the manager feels that it upon himself to a lot of responsibilities, but with that decision-making does not have to make any adjustments or changes, this would fall ill with tension.

2 – Upgrade:
The Director nervous if it is not confident of receiving an upgrade, and if you do not feel reassured on his future career. 
3 – Unit:
A managers may try to keep all his problems for himself in order not to carry his wife or his friends more burdens.
4 – Lack of regulation:
When a disorganized Manager, he always looks for its files, reports, and car keys, then each accused him of causing the loss of things or take them, which feels tense..
5 – Appearance:
Director appearance has a direct impact on his feelings, if the bad food habit and suffers from obesity, it feels that its appearance is inappropriate, and that he can not change his appearance, all this make him feel nervous.
6 – Pain physical:
Director may feel nervous if he was suffering from pain in his body, such as stomach ache or headache, or even a seat knee collision causing him pain.
7 – emotional pain (psychological):
Director, which may feel nervous to lose Dear, a loved one, or the experience of going through a divorce, or separation from a loved one.
Do you Pass through one of these situations?
Did it cause tension in subordinates?

             “Listen to your body because it tells you everything about the silent killers”
Where now you may already be familiar to some of the main reasons why the tension Let us know together on signs of tension:
– Loss of appetite

How to Manage Stress with these strategies 0 36

There are many variants when it comes to stress. Coping with life, and carrying the problems that may or may not belong to you can scratch away the little joy and happiness that you can carry once you head out that door. You can’t blame them for being like that; they have their own reasons, so much like we have our reasons to allow stress to weigh us down. They say that stress is all in the mind, well, what’s bugging you anyway?

Is unavoidable in life, it is important to find ways to decrease and prevent stressful incidents and decrease negative reactions to stress. Here are some of the things that can be done by just remembering it, since life is basically a routine to follow like brushing your teeth or eating breakfast. You can do a few of them in a longer span of time, but as they say– every minute counts.

Managing time

Time management skills can allow you more time with your family and friends and possibly increase your performance and productivity. This will help reduce your stress.

To improve your time management:

• Save time by focusing and concentrating, delegating, and scheduling time for yourself.
• Keep a record of how you spend your time, including work, family, and leisure time.
• Prioritize your time by rating tasks by importance and urgency. Redirect your time to those activities that are important and meaningful to you.
• Manage your commitments by not over- or undercommitting. Don’t commit to what is not important to you.

• Deal with procrastination by using a day planner, breaking large projects into smaller ones, and setting short-term deadlines.
• Examine your beliefs to reduce conflict between what you believe and what your life is like.

Build healthy coping strategies

     It is important that you identify your coping strategies. One way to do this is by recording the stressful event, your reaction, and how you cope in a stress journal. With this information, you can work to change unhealthy coping strategies into healthy ones-those that help you focus on the positive and what you can change or control in your life.



Some behaviors and lifestyle choices affect your stress level. They may not cause stress directly, but they can interfere with the ways your body seeks relief from stress. Try to:

• Balance personal, work, and family needs and obligations.
• Have a sense of purpose in life.
• Get enough sleep, since your body recovers from the stresses of the day while you are sleeping.
• Eat a balanced diet for a nutritional defense against stress.
• Get moderate exercise throughout the week.
• Limit your consumption of alcohol.
• Don’t smoke.

Social support

     Social support is a major factor in how we experience stress. Social support is the positive support you receive from family, friends, and the community. It is the knowledge that you are cared for, loved, esteemed, and valued. More and more research indicates a strong relationship between social support and better mental and physical health.

Changing thinking

      When an event triggers negative thoughts, you may experience fear, insecurity, anxiety, depression, rage, guilt, and a sense of worthlessness or powerlessness. These emotions trigger the body’s stress, just as an actual threat does. Dealing with your negative thoughts and how you see things can help reduce stress.
• Thought-stopping helps you stop a negative thought to help eliminate stress.
• Disproving irrational thoughts helps you to avoid exaggerating the negative thought, anticipating the worst, and interpreting an event incorrectly.
• Problem solving helps you identify all aspects of a stressful event and find ways to deal with it.
• Changing your communication style helps you communicate in a way that makes your views known without making others feel put down, hostile, or intimidated. This reduces the stress that comes from poor communication. Use the assertiveness ladder to improve your communication style.

Self-confidence is the key to happiness 45 131

          Self-confidence is not a gift from heaven, we are craftsmen. Similarly, we built a temporary or chronic lack of confidence following an unfortunate event or untoward behavior on the part of others. 

In all cases, it is not inevitable, then take our trowels and hammers: Martine Teillac, psychoanalyst, gives us 3 keys to build self-confidence:

Set self-confidence

According Direct 8, 75% of people lack confidence.  Who has never felt uncomfortable facing a given situation, often without daring to say and whose professional projects found themselves  hampered? deficit, even minor, self-confidence can transform certain actions to be undertaken
 in energy-consuming tests: talk about yourself in a job interview, convince a potential partner, 
pick up the phone, build or interact with its network etc…
And there is no universally difficult actions to take or not: the uncomfortable feeling will lodge where the lack of confidence is expressed, which varies according to the people. So needless to say, 
“There is nothing to fear” to an anxious person to the idea of passing a job interview because the reason has nothing to do with it.
   In  thesetimes orstandard dictates tobe outgoingand dynamic, it combines a little too quickly the
 lack of self-confidence with shyness.

No need to be an introvert shy back carp release stashed under  rocks to insecure in certain 
Because  confidence is the idea that we have of our ability to cope with a given situation. 
So, it is obviously impossible to feel sure (e) self permanently, because we do not  have all the skills necessary to cope with everything.
However, well known and recognized our capabilities allows you to feel more serene face the vagaries of our professional lives.
The consequences of lack of insurance
The discomfort that results from lack of confidence can generate a good penalizing  relational awkwardness:
  • Hesitant behavior, begging, victimization
  • Devaluation of skills
  •  Convers Ely: over estimation, arrogance etc…
In short, lack of self-confidence can lead straight to failure strategies and procrastination.
Rebuilding self-confidence
The lack of insurance or self-confidence is not inevitable:
Self-confidence is built, is shaped and maintained through technical and practical action. Martine Teillac, psychoanalyst and  psychotherapist, in an interview for Direct 8 says that construction  work is based on three aspects: 

1.  the inner speech

        Let exacerbate our faults and forget our qualities. “The internal dialogue (…)will condition our behavior, explains Martine Teillac.
 It can be very simple sentences, for example, I meet  my neighbor who does not say hello to me and I said “damn I suck (it).” I would have thought ” my neighbor has concerns, she did not head to that”
 and I do not put myself in question. “In other words, in our inner speech repents all that is of the order of the devaluation, the misinterpretation that disparages us and replace those thoughts with 
a more objective speech (not positive), so avoid a crippling devaluation and promote a look at itself more caring and motivating..

  2. building its own scale of values: detach from the past


   “When we had parents who always put his finger on what was wrong, we will tend to do the same. So put the past in its place, reconsider criticism from parents, orders and build our own system of values, our own personal level, “advises the analyst.
Education and those who are responsible have transmitted wagons limiting beliefs that maintain a look and a negative mindset about ourselves. Give them their beliefs and build belief systems of our
 own, which are what we think and what we believe helps.

  3.  passage to action accompanied by talent assessment implemented

The transition to action, even do it in small steps rather than jumping into the deep end of  a sudden is the prerequisite of strengthening confidence because it brings us evidence of our ability every  challenge statement.
Martine Teillac offers self-evaluate, on a scale of 1 to 10, our confidence in specific situations.
 “It’s a safe bet that you’ll rarely zero point of your ability, your expertise or skills“.
 Realizing this, “you’re going to build on the fact that the estimate you were doing yourself  was perhaps not so amazingly severe and in line with the reality of behavior that you implement.” 
This finding supports the move to action, as a result of this awareness and analysis skills,
 resources, skills, talents we have, we are more likely to want to act, including outside our comfort zone.
