How Quality EAP Services Help Employees Cope with Trauma in the Workplace
Employers should not underestimate the impact of trauma on the workplace. Traumatized workers, without proper support, can have a range of symptoms that include difficulty concentrating, feelings of intense fear and anxiety, anger and irritability or sadness and depression. Victims can also experience guilt or shame as a result of others not understanding what they are going through or being blamed after an incident.
Be Creative in Ways to Boost Morale in Summer and Fall
While every season may present unique employee challenges inside the workplace, sometimes it’s what’s happening outside that has the biggest impact. That could be especially true this summer and fall, given the current circumstances. Seasonal effects on staff morale could likely be magnified—if they’re not addressed.
A vast majority of Americans consistently report their employment as a significant source of stress.
Stress can impact almost every aspect of our lives, causing difficulty concentrating or sleeping, a weakened immune system, frequent headaches and more. And long-term chronic stress can have even more negative and lasting effects when it is not addressed.
The American Psychological Association’s (APA) annual Stress in America survey has found that a majority of Americans consistently report their employment as a significant source of stress. And today's stressors are so different then they were 2 or 3 months ago. Think about it, from healthcare workers, grocery clerks to the stressors of working from home, the stress and anxiety levels are through the roof!
Becoming a caregiver for a parent, spouse or other loved one is a selfless act—and one that often comes with many physical and emotional challenges.
Care-giving frequently requires a person to dedicate most of their time and attention to caring for the patient, leaving little time for other activities. That can swiftly and dramatically change the nature of relationships. In addition, caregivers might not feel equipped to provide the kind of care their patient needs. All of this can lead to stress and, when left unchecked, caregiver burnout.
Enough with the COVID! Feel happier and healthier when you practice self-care at work and at home.
Put on your own oxygen mask before assisting others. We’ve all heard it before, but when it comes to our everyday lives, we don’t tend to apply that simple message. Remember: You can’t take care of others, if you don’t first take care of yourself.
Everything is so crazy right now, like a page out of science fiction novel. But now more than ever before, self-care is so important. Our schedules have been turned upside down, and it becomes easier to become complacent about taking good care of ourselves both mentally and physically.
Self-care can often be difficult for people. Practicing self-care can feel selfish or counter-intuitive. But, thankfully, there are small steps you can take to put yourself first. And in doing so, you give your best to your job, family and the rest of your life.
