You Don’t Have To Be Shot At To Be Stressed At Work

Some jobs are clearly more stressful than others. Being in fear of your life every moment of every day doesn’t have much competition. But, for sensitive people, life can seem like that and mundane ordinary jobs – jobs that other people cope with and even enjoy – can seem like a journey into Hell every day. This is one of the reasons why tranquillisers and anti-depressants are amongst the most commonly prescribed medications. But it isn’t so much about the job, it’s because we’ve lost touch with our soul. We’ve lost touch with who we are, and we’ve lost touch with our connection to others. We live isolated lives where we have to spend so much time just earning enough to pay the bills that we have little time left for ourselves or our families. Change is possible. Peace is achievable.

Reducing Stress At Work

Stress in the workplace is endemic. Workers are used like robots. Individual skills and talents are ignored or under-utilised. Managers don’t have a clue. Companies, no names but you know who I mean, pay their workers the minimum they can get away with and exploit poverty and high unemployment to get away with unreasonable treatment of staff. It’s time for a revolution. Not a physical revolution but a gentle, slow, mindful revolution. If they can’t get to your mind, they can’t get to you. Train your mind and learn to be free.
