Workplace Stress Management and Resiliency Training (SMaRT): What You Need To Know
Deadlines. Frustrations. Obstacles. Do you start your workweek feeling overwhelmed, anxious, irritable or low on energy? These are just a few physical and emotional signs of out-of-control workplace stress. There are times when it is all too much and you might wish to be rid of stress forever. While there is no magic fix for stress, there are proven tools, such as workplace stress management and resiliency training, to build resilience and allow you to thrive no matter what challenges you face at work.
The APA describes resilience as:
“The process of adapting well in the face of adversity, trauma, tragedy, threats, or significant sources of stress — such as family and relationship problems, serious health problems or workplace and financial stressors. It means “bouncing back” from difficult experiences.”
For JB Partners, resiliency is “Your ability to push through life when it punches you in the gut.”
What is Stress Management and Resiliency Training (SMaRT)?
Stress Management seeks to mitigate the negative impacts of life’s challenges. Stress is an internal, biological reaction to a perceived situation. Internal problems take internal solutions. At its core, our reaction to workplace stressors, including organizational change, ambiguity, or interpersonal relationships, is based on our worldview or perceptions. When we have a different worldview, we think/feel/act differently, so our stress is different.
Resiliency Training is the systematic development of mental, physical, emotional, and behavioral toughness. Workers of all kinds can learn to redirect their attention to more positive aspects of your life. Training can enhance your ability to ‘bounce back’ from challenges and setbacks and decrease your stress.
