Three instances where you have felt stressed

  • Job interview: Most people usually feel ecstatic when they finally secure a job interview, but that elation can quickly turn to worry as you contemplate actually going to the interview.
  • Starting college: Many teens spend their high school days anticipating that moment when they can enter college, and be seen as an official adult; one that is “free”. However, once the reality of separating from their friends and family, and often leaving the hometown they grew up in begins to seep into their consciousness, many teens might feel anxious and nervous about the new expectations that are being placed upon them.
  • Confronting physical danger: Being in physical danger is also quite a stressor. Although not read as dangerous on the body as long term hassles, confronting a robber or being swept away by a fast moving river iscertainly considered a stressor.

    Two causes or triggers of your own personal emotional states at work.


    One instance of modelling workplace behaviours

    The ERI model was developed by Johannes in the early 1990’s. This theory assumes that effort at work is spent as part of a psychological contract, based on the norm of social reciprocity, where effort spent at work is paired with rewards provided in terms of money, esteem, career opportunities. An imbalance (non-reciprocal) relationship between the effort spent and rewards received can result in the emotional distress associated with a stress response, and an increased risk of ill-health. Siegrist suggests that stress related to the imbalance between effort and rewards can arise under three conditions: namely,

  • has a poorly defined work contract or where the employee has little choice concerning alternative employment opportunities;
  • accepts the imbalance for reasons such as the prospect of improved working conditions and
  • copes with the demands at work through over commitment.
  • 5.

    Three actions you will take to improve your own emotional intelligence

  • Find a balance between personal, work, and family needs. This isn’t easy. Start by looking at how you spend your time. Maybe there are things that you don’t need to do at all. Finding a balance can be especially hard during the holidays.
  • Get enough sleep. Your body recovers from the stresses of the day while you are sleeping. If your worries keep you from sleeping, keep a notepad or your cell phone by your bed to record what you are worried about-to help you let it go while you sleep. For example, if you are worried you might forget to run an errand the next day, make a note so that you can stop worrying about forgetting.
  • Get supportSupport in your life from family, friends, and your community has a big impact on how you experience stress. Having support in your life can help you stay healthy.Support means having the love, trust, and advice of others. But support can also be something more concrete, like time or money. It can be hard to ask for help. But doing so doesn’t mean you’re weak.
