Not all stress is bad stress. “Positive stress” can propel learning, growth, and achievement at work. “Negative stress” is the type we want to address. Negative stress at work can come from a number of factors including workload, long hours, or lack of support. Prolonged negative stress can affect our mental health, from how we feel day-to-day to how we act, cope, and perform at our jobs.
These resources and activities help identify, manage, and reduce negative stress at work. By accomplishing this, we’re building greater resilience to help protect against the effects of stressful environments. By building greater resilience, we are more likely to perceive demands as challenges rather than threats, and ultimately, are better equipped to cope with stress that comes up.
