Work is a necessary part of our lives. It’s where we spend the most of our time, making new acquaintances and meeting new people. Having a fulfilling career is the most important aspect of maintaining good mental health. If you’re in good mental health, you should:
- You have the ability to maximize your potential.
- You can deal with whatever life throws at you.
- You have the ability to contribute fully to your relationships, your workplace, and your community.
We may develop a mental health condition when we confront severe obstacles at home or at work, which can emerge in a number of symptoms and indicators. At work, we may realize that we are more weary than normal, making unexpected blunders or becoming irritable.
What can we do to keep our mental health in check?
There are things we can do at work to improve our mental health and comfort while also working toward a better work-life balance.
- Excessive working hours should be avoided.
- Meetings should be scheduled during working hours.
- Take a lot of breaks
- Working from home is not an option.
- Set deadlines and stick to them.
- Employee Assistance Program (EAP) (EAP)
- Taking a walk during your break can help you clear your mind.
- Learn something new, and take advantage of learning opportunities at work.
- If you feel you are unable to manage the demands placed on you, speak with your boss.
Employers should be aware that having staff with poor mental health can be tremendously costly to a business because it reduces worker productivity. Furthermore, replacing employees who leave due to mental health concerns comes at an additional expense to companies, as insecure employees lower the return on investment that employers want from the recruitment process. Employers should try to maintain a mentally healthy environment and be alert in identifying and responding to incidents of poor mental health in order to avert this.
