We just released a video on Stress Management and Burnout Prevention featuring Brittany Busse, M.D., an Associate Medical Director at WorkCare. We invite you to check it out and share it with others.
You’ll learn about how stress can impair your physical and mental health, and how to counteract those effects. Insights you will gain from the video are particularly relevant as the COVID-19 pandemic drags on.
To better manage stress and help prevent burnout, here are some practices you may want to try yourself or promote in your workplace:
Employees who are struggling with issues that affect their quality of life and performance at work – such as substance abuse, relationship or financial problems, low morale, depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder or chronic pain – can be encouraged to seek professional help. Many companies offer access to Employee Assistance Programs and other behavioral health services through benefits packages. Community-based and church organizations are also a good source of support.
Confiding in a therapist, spiritual adviser, trusted partner, friend or family member helps control racing thoughts and provides valuable insights for stress management.
