Stress is part of the daily life of Mexican workers, as up to 75% suffer from burnout syndrome or fatigue due to work stress, according to figures from the World Health Organization (WHO). This puts Mexico first in terms of work stress, above countries such as China (73%) and the United States (59%). The symptoms of burnout are quite similar to those of clinical depression: A recurring sensation of demotivation, mental exhaustion accompanied by a lower tolerance to stress, lack of energy and lower performance. Physically, burnout manifests as muscle pain and psychosomatic affectations.

1. Listen to your body Sometimes excess stress begins to manifest through affectations to the body. Headaches, abnormal blood pressure, digestion problems and a constant feeling of anxiety are some of the red lights of the body when faced with large amounts of stress. It is important to pay attention to the organism and these signals so that, rather than attacking the symptoms, we can directly confront what causes stress.

2. Disconnect yourself The best thing you can do in a scenario of stress generated by work is to disconnect. It is important to have time for yourself, recover focus and recharge energy, and that will only be achieved by moving away from work in body and mind. Clear the afternoons and weekends, and avoid checking your email so you do not push yourself too hard. If this is impossible, consider establishing schedules to respond to messages and work. In the long run, working without rest is more unproductive for you and your company.

3. Move Being locked up for eight hours a day has its effect on mood. It is important to balance the time you spend in the office with physical activity or walking outdoors. Some options are to go jogging or exercising in the mornings, walking or arriving by bicycle to work. The important thing is to use your energy in an optimal way so as not to feel frustrated by the excess of seclusion. Physical activity will make you feel much more relaxed, plus it will do good to your health in general.

4. Save time for yourself No matter how busy you feel, it is important to take small breaks from time to time. Do not wait to be tired to give yourself a break and reserve 15 minutes after each hour of work to clear a little, rest your eyes, stretch your body and breathe some fresh air. Your body will thank you.

5. Keep your friends close Sometimes intense work seasons can give you the feeling that you do not have time for your personal life, but this is something you must fight, because it is precisely during periods of work pressure that friends and family become valuable allies against stress . Spending time with them reminds you who you are, why you do what you do and in the process it helps you to clear up.

6. Get organized Most of the time the work pressure does not come from an excess of work, but from a bad administration of it. Try to organize your work in such a way that you can solve everything on time but without pressing too much, and in your agenda do not forget to make room for yourself and the activities that motivate you to move forward. If someone of your classmates is in a stress situation, invite them to take action and change their status, share the FRESHNESS 🙂
