Creating a culture that minimizes employee stress and fatigue should be a priority for every company given its impact on productivity, said Mónica Guzmán, Costa Rica representative at Head of Health & Benefits Central America.
And according to a regional study by WTW of a sample of 410 business leaders, 84% of employers say they have significant concerns about policies that positively impact the overall health of their work team.
With this in mind, employees can also help create a more relaxed work environment, both personally and collectively, by following these recommendations so that you have peace of mind in your work:
Set healthy boundaries: By establishing clear boundaries between work and home life, it is advisable to avoid, as much as possible, bringing work home with you or allowing personal concerns to interfere with work performance.
Promote effective communication: Open and honest communication with colleagues and superiors is essential. If you have concerns or problems in the workplace, healthy communication must be encouraged on both sides to find solutions.
Set realistic goals: Defining achievable work goals and avoiding work overload enable feelings of success and progress at work, which can improve emotional well-being.
Seek social support: Maintain positive relationships at work and outside of it, whether with a group of friends, family or colleagues you trust and with whom you can share experiences to feel comforted in difficult situations.
Prioritize self-care: Take time regularly to take care of yourself by exercising, eating healthy, getting enough sleep, and practicing relaxation techniques such as meditation or yoga.
Exactly on the next two Saturdays in September, at 3 p.m., at Multiplaza Escazú and Curridabat, there will be free facial yoga workshops for stress relief, organized by the Yves Rocher brand and for which you can register via this link.
