By Akkshitta,

For most of us, it is not easy to deal with the issues present in our personal and professional lives. Stress often takes away our ability to work efficiently at the workplace and our ability to handle any situation rationally. As working professionals, we are bound to see ourselves in situations which cause stress. The pressure to meet deadlines, handling different people in a task, the pressure to give our best and many such situations cause anxiety and stress. At times, the pressure on our heads even makes us believe that we are not good enough and makes us question our abilities, ultimately causing stress. Stress leads a person to the path of their downfall by reducing creativity, hampering efficiency, lack of attention at work, reduction in the ability to work under pressurising situations etc.

There are multiple ways to deal with stress, affirmative action is one of them. The different stressful situations we face in our lives, workplace stress being one of them, can be effectively tackled by affirmations. Let us know how.
