Stress, Burnout and Saying No

Having a community in which to share your stress is valuable. We has spent so much time isolating our selves and feelings from others that we have almost destroyed any change we have of support. It is hard to talk to people when there is no one to talk to. It is stressful to make friends and build that community, even harder to trust those you choose (when the world tells us we are wrong all the time.)
Thank you for the article, it comes at a time when many I know are experiencing stressful times.

Practical Practice Management


According to a survey of employees by the CDC (Centers for Disease Control), between 40-50% have reported that their job is “very” stressful and 26% report frequent burnout or stress from their employment.  Those are pretty high figures that are occurring on a regular basis.

As we know stress can cause all types of emotional and physical problems.  It is obvious by these figures why so many people do not do their best at work.  Even in a small business there will be stressful times and the more people who are working in stressful conditions under one roof the higher the stress and burnout rate.

There are specific approaches we can take to help reduce stress in the work place.  One such approach could be to talk with those you work with and let them know about the stress you are feeling and find out if they also are feeling stressed.
