It’s fair to say that the past 18 months have been the perfect storm for creating work-related stress. The Health and Safety Executive’s (HSE) definition of stress is: “The reaction people have to excessive demands or pressures, arising when people try to cope with tasks, responsibilities or other types of pressure connected with their job, but find difficulty, strain or worry in doing so.”
Some stress is positive, it helps us perform better and rise to the challenges of our work, but continued stress can have a detrimental impact on physical and mental health that can spill over into work, home and personal life. Unfortunately, all too often we ignore the signs of stress because we don’t want to admit ‘weakness’ or be seen to be unable to cope.
We know, from talking to members that COVID has generated significant levels of personal stress; be that job related, dealing with home schooling, being remote from family and friends or managing the stress levels of others. Members have told us that they are mentally exhausted and suffering from burnout and managers how told us that they are concerned for the mental health and well being of their staff.
Responding to members we’re partnering with Anxiety UK to offer a free webinar that will confront the taboos of stress and anxiety, help us identify and manage stress in ourselves and others and give us practical techniques to help our health and wellbeing flourish.
Kindly sponsored by the CIEH Welfare Fund and Julie Barratt Legal Training we hope this webinar can be utilised as a tool to help identify and manage stress in yourself, colleagues and friends and family.
