Well-being at Work

SUMANA SAHA

Stress has many interpretations and is one of the most ambiguous words in the English language.”

Stress is an important parameter in organizational behaviour, in part due to the increase in competitive pressures that impact workers and managers alike. Stress carries a negative connotation for some people, as though it were to be avoided. This is unfortunate, because stress is a great asset in managing legitimate emergencies and achieving peak performance. Stress, or the stress response is the unconscious preparation to fight or flee that a person experiences when faced with any demands.

Consequences of Stress

POSITIVE STRESS

Positive stress can bring performance and health benefits. The Yerkes-Dodson law shown alongside indicates that stress leads to increased performance upto a certain optimal point. Beyond that, further stress and arousal can have a detrimental effect on performance. Healthy amounts of stress are desirable to improve performance by arousing a person to action. It is in the mid range of the curve that the greatest performance benefits from the curve can be achieved. Performance declines beyond the mid point in the curve because of increasing difficulty of the task to be performed.

INDIVIDUAL STRESS

“Work-related psychological disorders are among the ten leading health disorders and diseases in the United states.”

College Life Cycle

Isn’t it crazy how we can look back 4 years ago and realize how much everythinga has changed? The amount of people that have left  your life, entered and stayed. The memories you won’t forget and the moments you wish you did. Everything. It’s crazy how all that happened in just one year.

How lucky I am to have something that makes saying Goodbye so hard!

What happened to us?
Who can we trust?
We are not the same
It’s such a tired game
We all lie
We all cry
Why do we even try?
This life is too short
To live with hate
We can’t go back
It’s just too late.
I’ve tried to save you
But there’s nothing left for me to do
You’re always saying that it’s not you
But I know deep down that
That’s a lie
So there’s no reason left to try
So here we go
Time to say no
To walk away with nothing left to say
No more lies
Only goodbyes.
