Things Appear More Irritating Than Usual
Do you find yourself reacting to situations a little more aggressively than usual? Are your boss’s demands weighing on you a little too much? Conflicts and deadlines are a normal part of office life, but there are times when we feel more affected than usual. This inner tension could burst out in an undesirable way, causing an unnecessarily ugly working dynamic. If you’re feeling like this, it might be high time to remove yourself from the office and break the cycle of tension.
Chasing deadlines but can’t keep up? Hastily done work inevitably leads to errors. Whether its miscalculations, typos, or incomplete work, these mistakes only make an angry boss, thus creating a loop of even more stress and anxiety. While no one is performing at their optimal levels 5 days a week, a break for your mind could reduce the sloppy work and be the much-needed restart button you need.
Physical Signs of Stress
Dramatic weight loss or gain, acne breakouts, or an inability to stay awake — these are all major physical signs that your body may be overworked. Our stress hormones spike from anxiety and emotional stress, often making us sick. When you’re spiraling into a fog, it’s important to keep track of the symptoms. Prioritize your mental health and work on some coping mechanisms. Things can worsen if you keep ignoring the signs.
