Reducing Workplace Stress During the Holidays

Share Article

Workplace stress is challenging enough during the year. But many people feel more depressed at work during the holidays.

Statistics from the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health reported:

40% of workers report their job is "very or extremely stressful".

26% of workers report they are "often or very often burned out or stressed" by their work.

29% of workers report they feel "quite a bit or extremely stressed at work".

But during the holidays, additional workplace stress multiplies because of certain factors that include gift buying, relatives visiting and those infamous office parties. "The answer to handling this added stress is to keep your attitude focused on being the best YOU can be", says Tom (TJ) Jones, author of "A Career Devotional". TJ is also a professional certified career coach and speaks nationally on overcoming workplace challenges.

TJ further believes you have to "pump yourself up" by celebrating daily victories and learning to convert challenges into prevailing lessons. His book is overflowing with more heartening and confirming messages than most people receive during an entire lifetime of working relationships.

Martin Rutte, co-author of Chicken Soup for the Soul at Work says "This book has made the important connection of career success with what I call 'your natural source of creativity, innovation and genius'".

Tom (TJ) Jones suggests two very important things to keep yourself "Pumped Up" during the holidays.

1. Absorb one positive message each day.

2. Journalize your response to each daily message by writing a short passage expressing your thoughts.

The result of these actions will refresh your soul and uplift your spirit. In TJ's book, A Career Devotional, he offers 100 of those positive messages and provides an area to journal your thoughts for each inspiring message.
