Stress is associated with each and every task that we do. There are many personal, situational, and organizational factors that may cause stress. Workplace stress is the most common source of stress, limiting not only to a person’s professional life but also to their emotional and personal life.
Multiple stressors cause job stress like lack of support, work relationships, heavy workload, job insecurity, working long hours, facing a tight deadline, etc. The prevailing conditions of the Coronavirus pandemic have increased the overall level of stress in every individual. With so many causes, it becomes essential to manage stress. Not doing so can lead to some short-term and long-term effects on an individual’s mental and physical well-being. Therefore, it is crucial to learn the techniques of stress management and keep ourselves motivated all the time.
With this perspective, the ISR Club of SCMS NOIDA had organized a session on “Stress Management and How to Keep Yourself Positive during a Difficult Time” for its faculty and staff members. The session took place on 26th September 2020 with Dr. Girija Mahale and Ms. Yoshita Thadaney as the speakers.
