High pressure is a feeling that many friends feel in their daily lives, especially male friends in the workplace who are more susceptible to it. We know that long-term high-pressure life can harm our health. So what puts us under heavy pressure, and how should we resolve it effectively?
The factors that cause psychological stress in white-collar men include:
1、 Workaholic: The average person's normal working hours are 8-10 hours, which is the load on human health. If you work for more than 12 hours for a long time, it can create pressure on the human body.
2、 Extreme loss: In everyone's life, there are always many disappointments, and not everyone has sufficient problem-solving abilities, which can lead to a sense of loss. The emotional response derived from a sense of loss can lead to a pessimistic, disappointed, lack of confidence, and even a cynical mindset. The pressure of career poses the greatest threat to white-collar men. Unable to withstand this kind of pressure often leads to a sense of loss, which is commonly referred to as the 'gray mentality'.
3、 Difficult to endure high pressure: The marriage between the personality of white-collar men and the characteristics of the times has nurtured competition. Long term exposure to the atmosphere of intense competition can make them extremely nervous, depressed, and disappointed, leading to emotional fluctuations. When you can't bear this overload of mental pressure, you often lose control of yourself and lose your self-control.
4、 Family crisis: The work environment, social environment, as well as the value choices and emotional orientations among family members can all hide and trigger family crises. Even in situations where there is no reason for conflict, pressure will still come to you through the family. This makes many white-collar men unhappy and unhappy all day long, sometimes feeling anxious and upset.
5、 Disease strike: Diseases are most likely to cause mental depression, and some may even lose confidence in life. The pressure of illness comes from the worry of losing a healthy body and losing confidence in recovery.
6、 Excessive greed: If you have a high desire for money, wealth, and other things, it is greed. It causes long-term tension in your relaxed brain nerves, accelerates normal heart and brain movements, and produces a rhythm that is not coordinated with normal physiological functions, which can damage the brain, heart, and body.
Reducing psychological stress can start from the following aspects:
1、 Slow down your work pace: If you are overwhelmed by the pressure of intense work, it's best to immediately put your work down, slow down, and take a break. You may do better.
2、 Reasonably arrange your schedule: Strictly implement your own established schedule, so that life, study, and work can proceed in a regular manner.
3、 Pay attention to cultivating a good mindset: strengthen psychological cultivation and cultivate the habit of conducting psychological analysis. You can consider making friends with psychologists in order to receive their help frequently.
4、 Ensure adequate sleep: Do not offend the laws of nature, or they will be retaliated by the laws of nature.
5、 Accurately evaluate oneself: always maintain a calm heart, do not struggle with oneself, set goals that are unattainable, do everything within one's ability, adjust goals at any time, and it may not be the behavior of the weak.
6、 Handle the relationship between career and family well: Family harmony and career success are not incompatible, their relationship is interactive. "Family and everything prosper, unable to 'unify the family', perhaps also unable to 'pacify the world'.
7、 Psychological preparation is necessary when facing pressure: it is necessary to fully recognize that the high efficiency of modern society inevitably brings high competitiveness and high challenge. It is necessary to have sufficient psychological preparation for certain negative impacts arising from this, so as to avoid temporary panic and aggravation of pressure. At the same time, maintain a normal and optimistic mindset, and avoid being burdened with adversity.
8、 To cultivate oneself with a broad and open-minded mind: to be kind to others, to be clear about big things and confused about small ones. Zheng Banqiao's quote 'It's hard to be confused' has been passed down to this day because it embodies the essence of life.
9、 Enrich personal leisure life and develop personal hobbies: The taste of life often makes people feel happy. Painting, calligraphy, chess, sports, entertainment, etc. can add a lot of joy to life, adjust the pace of life, break free from the monotonous and tense atmosphere, and move towards joy and relaxation.
Appropriate stress can promote our lives and work, but if we are under heavy pressure and do not know how to relieve it, our health will be greatly threatened.
