Job Stress

Job stress begins right from the stage of searching jobs. Looking for a job is not that easy despite having good qualifications one has to struggle to find job of one’s taste or field. Graduation or other theoretical studies alone do not serve purpose of establishments; they need people with experiences who can handle job at once or be ready to work as trainee. This hurts for those who spent almost 20years of their life in education in expectation of good opening. Begin searching jobs in ads to knocking doors of establishments. For many unexpected delay and failures, breaks our heart to build up depression, soul, and mind cursing self and god for failures. The stressed individual develops irritating behavior, weakening confidence, dizziness and so on.

• Job is essential for freedom and self-reliance.
• Having a job is an identity of an individual.
• Job brings maturity.
• Job is a source of income to fulfill own needs and so on.

Considering these factors job plays important role for an individual. Thus, each individual’s endeavor is to have a nice source for income and becomes priority of life.

Job stress is a situation when pressure builds up in the brain during involvement in the job. Any job that gives strain creates unfavorable environment that affect brain and individuality is a situation of uneasiness and depressing. Individuality suffers from emotional injury and brain suffers from exhaustion during task. However, in both cases brain and body come in pressure due to their functional systems. These two factors play role to give job stress.

Emotional stress in work place: The situation that leads to attract negatively our emotions to react to reject is emotional stress. Many instance we come across during office hours. Some manage and some are disheartened. However, to ignore or react to the situation depends on how mentally strong one is or depends on need or choices availability for change. Nevertheless, many instances are strong enough to weaken the individual to invite depression in self as change of a job may become difficult.

• We spend most of our life in work places and meet different personalities as colleagues and bosses. Our personalities some times match with others and sometimes do not. Boss’s/ senior colleague or partners’ bad attitude becomes irritating environment, which affects own working. Find in as stage that forces to reject the atmosphere and inability to continue.
• Despite working hard when does not get the suitable reward or salary, demoralizes the individual.
• Misbehavior and harassment by bosses develops insecurity and fear.
• Inability to perform or reach office timely is one of the reasons to create fear.
• Restrictions on movements and freedom to work are like imprisonment.
• Sexual harassment or mistreatment from boss or senior colleague is demoralizing situation.
• Office politics and jealousy is reason to dishearten.

Brain stress in workplace: This is a situation when our brain exhausts during carrying job activities due to workload, long hours, complexity, or inability to complete timely. These factors contribute to build up high pressure to create chaos to let brain function under compulsion. Continuous and routine pressure in an activity to puzzle brain, results brain to drain and disturb. Exhausted brain, in all cases, fails to either respond or concentrate. In addition, damages other essential activities. Brain stress denotes excessive burden on brain than its capability. Weakens its cells to absorb and releases inconsistent chemical directions to damage body and self. Such symptoms may be:

• Inefficient working and mistakes
• Bad or wrong decisions
• Quarrel and misbehavior with colleagues
• Weak memory and weak health
• Job dissatisfaction and short temperament
• Depression and irritation
• Migraine and headache
• Sleep problems.
• Indigestion and stomach disorder
• Eye sight and breath problems
• Change in behavior and addiction to unwanted.
• Extreme and continuous stressful work may lead to high blood pressure, asthma, paralysis, chest pain and heart attach and other seviour mental issues,

Physical stress in jobs: This is a situation when body and its parts begin straining due to excessive sittings, risky, hazardous and hard restless physical involvement. Many jobs necessitate physical involvement such as labor, travel and marketing, desk and accounting, communication and relationship, and so on. However, the entire jobs one or the other way involve physically performing responsibilities. Level of stress depends on how long, how risky and hard one strains the body to complete the job.

Sitting in a chair working continuously for long hours in a computer looking continuously in screen and typing with fingers does not mean the easiest work. This too gives strain to neck, shoulders, spinal code, eyes, and so resulting spondylitis, deformed spinal code, weakening eyesight and pain, shoulder pain. And so on. Therefore, each job has its disadvantages until handled properly. Each job needs physical involvement whether silently or practically. In both cases, body needs relaxation and break to adjust to normal functioning.

Women and stress in jobs: Women are vulnerable to office atmosphere. They cannot accept what men can, they cannot behave as men can, they cannot be free as men are, and they cannot stay in the office as men do, and so on. In most cases, their movements are not as free as men are. They need to restrict themselves to protect their integrity and identity for survival in the society thus restricts them to limitations to association with men, work long hours, and show frankness. These limitations trim their growth in the office. In men’s world women have to behave so they escape harmful atmosphere. These factors altogether drive to emotional stress that she has to stand as long as she is vulnerable to unwanted conduct.

Her weakness in the job or frank mix-up would be an invitation to male boss to seek closeness so she is reticent, in the same time she would not even wish her boss to scold for her weakness so she is active as long as she is in the office. She carries this tuff job more than her routine office job. She is most scared in the office is being raped or molested. Preventing such accidents, she has to be very cautious. Her each step is vigilant during office hours so she spends more energy in saving herself than doing her routine office work.
