Personal Factors

Excessive pressure and demands can also be part of our non-working life. This guide provides tips on managing personal issues that can impact wellbeing at work.

Introduction

We can experience excessive pressure and demands outside work just as much as we can at work and it is understandable that stressors at home can affect those at work and vice versa. To manage work-related stress effectively, it is valuable to recognise the importance and interaction of work and home problems. If this is an area you want to develop, you might want to consider things such as: unexpected life changes, health issues, caring responsibilities, life balance, difficulties at home etc.
