GET MY NEW BOOK NOW, FOR FREE!
What is your biggest workday challenge right now? Suffering through micromanagement? Working through anxiety or depression? Suffering through an infantalizing workplace that keeps you from growing? Finding the energy and motivation to survive at a job that feels a million miles away from your true passions?
There are a thousand different causes of professional stress and a seemingly infinite number of ways in which that stress can manifest itself. Some of us tremble at the hands of abusive coworkers or clients while others among us are just too bored to feel much of anything. Some of us are overwhelmed by the competitive nature of our workplace while others lose a grasp on optimism because of a humorless or judgmental workplace.
And how does the professional stress show up for us? It exists as headaches for some people, anger issues for others, and a general dulling of the senses for still others among us. Some of us might get loud and belligerent while others might stop expressing a personal voice. Some of us might take our stress out on family members while others only take it out on ourselves, and some of us might throw ourselves into substance abuse while others flatline and stop engaging in any pleasurable activities at all.
There are so many different causes and side-effects of professional stress that it would be impossible to discuss them all, but The Lovely Grind will attempt to touch on a large number of them by focusing on a different variety of workplace challenge/professional stress each month.
