Work-Related Problems and Job Stress
Job stress can be highly detrimental, especially when it becomes an ongoing issue. Physical problems as well as emotional problems can manifest from continued work-related stress. Stress from work-related issues can look different from person to person and often depends on how long the individual has been exposed to the stressor and how intense the stressor feels to that individual. Different issues can cause job related stress including burnout, personality conflicts, high performance demands, job insecurity, poor or difficult workplace culture, and problems at home that creep into work. Some symptoms of job related stress include:
- Anger problems
- Substance abuse
- Problems with sleep and appetite
- Poor concentration and focus
- Family problems
- Physical symptoms (e.g., stomach problems, headaches, fatigue, body tension)
