Pause, reflect and act

In a fast-paced work environment, it can be easy to be caught up in the momentum of the activity. If you feel your work is causing you to feel overwhelmed and stressed, it can be challenging to pinpoint the factors which make you feel this way. Pausing to reflect can help you avoid developing behaviours that can negatively impact the long term.

The 'Identify your Work Stressor' Tool is the first of a two-part process designed to assist you with a problem-solving approach to your perception of how the work contributes to stress. By spending time working through the stress assessment, considering the relevance of recognised sources of workplace stress to their situation, you will be in a position to articulate your difficulties better. You may also have some ideas which will help to resolve them.
