The body and mind reaction to every day demands and threats.

STRESS
It is a mismatch between the expectations of both individual and organisation. Stress not only affects the physical, Psychological and financial balances of an employee but also the employers as well.

.

Employees can be the biggest asset or biggest liability of an organisation

STRESS.
Desired results cannot be expected from employees who are burnt out, exhausted or stressed, as they loose their energy, accuracy and innovative thinking. By this, employers may loose more working days there by a decrease in productivity and increase in cost to company

WHAT IS STRESS
. When we believe we are in danger, the pituitary gland automatically sounds an alarm by releasing a burst of adreno cortico tropic hormone (ACTH), which in turn signals the adrenal glands to release the “stress hormones” adrenaline and cortisol. These hormones, speed up reaction times, and temporarily boost our physical strength and agility while we decide whether to retreat or stand firm.

MENTAL TECHNIQUES-5 FORGIVE.

6.forgive.

6.forgive.

6.forgive.
This is the most powerful aid to peace of mind. We often develop ill feelings inside our heart for the person who insults us or harms us. We nurture grievances. This in turn results in loss of sleep, development of stomach ulcers, and high blood pressure. This insult or injury was done once, but nourishing of grievance goes on forever by constantly remembering it. Get over this bad habit. Life is too short to waste in such trifles. Forgive, Forget, and march on. Love flourishes in giving and forgiving.

6.forgive.
Two children playing in a park begin to argue. One says, “I hate you! I’m never going to play with you again!” For a few moments, they play separately, and then they are back playing together and sharing toys. How do children manage to be so angry one minute and best of friends the next? The answer is simple, it is more important to them to be happy than to be right.

6.forgive.

Mental Tehniques.

“Please forgive me.”
Many broken relationships could be restored and healed if people would admit their mistakes and ask for forgiveness. All of us are vulnerable to faults, foibles and failures. A man should never be ashamed to own up that he has been in the wrong, which is saying, in other words, that he is wiser today than he was yesterday.

You should not base your identity merely on your job, income, or family, because it is risky. Due to some unexpected event you could lose your “precious” and due to your one-pillar mindset that would make you lose your identity too. In stead you should be living on more fronts than one. This also makes it possible to relate stressful things at let us say work, against a richer context of things in other ares of your life. Stressful things won’t blow out of proportion.
