Top Stressors at the office
If you work in an office, then you likely have things that you both love and hate about your job. You may enjoy interacting with the people around you, but the stress of hitting deadlines and getting things done can sometimes be too much. Your office may have a new, open floor plan, but there may be one coworker who is louder than all the rest. Whatever the case may be, it’s important to be able to deal with your stress, and with a new massage chair from WBMC, you can unwind at the end of any long day.
In this post, we’ll look at some of the top stressors that you can encounter at the office.

Lots of Work, Not Enough Time

Stress at the officeIt can often seem like there aren’t enough hours in the day to get all of your work done. If you’re paid hourly, then you’re expected to get as much done as you can in eight hours’ time. However, you may have more work on your plate than you can get done in eight hours, and your stress level may go up as that clock ticks closer to 5:00pm. If your office is understaffed, you may be asked to do the work of two people in the same amount of time it takes you to do your own. If that’s the case, having your massage chair waiting at home can give you something to look forward to once you leave the office.

Fear of Losing Your Job

You may have been at your company for several years, but you may have just gotten a new boss or supervisor who is very demanding. What once seemed like a stable job is now a bit unsure, and you might be worrying all day about whether or not you’ll have a job come tomorrow. Hopefully if you keep working hard and meeting deadlines, you’ll have nothing to worry about; however, seeing friends and coworkers fired can add to your stress level and make you wonder whether your future with the company is in jeopardy.

Lack of Control

It’s never fun to feel like you have no control over a situation, and it can be especially stressful when it happens in the workplace. You may not be involved in setting up a new work process, but you’re expected to follow the new process once it’s in place. You may be asked to train a new employee, but not given the resources necessary to do so. If a lack of control is causing you stress, you can relax at the end of the day in your chair and prepare yourself for the next day’s endeavors.

Strained Relationships

You’ve worked hard to build good relationships with your coworkers, and when one of those relationships is strained or broken, it can cause quite a bit of stress. You might worry about what the other person is saying about you, or how you’re going to get through a meeting where they’re sitting next to you. There may have been a misunderstanding that was blown out of proportion, but you’re not sure how to remedy the situation. Massage can do wonders for your emotional health when it’s out of balance.

There are obviously plenty of other stressors that can pop up at the office, and at WBMC, we’re here to help you deal with that stress.
