2012-Dec Restricted © Siemens 2013 All rights reserved. Page 3 General Awareness Stress - what is it? Stress is the reaction people have to excessive pressures or other types of demand placed upon them. It arises when they worry that they can’t cope. Stress is the “wear and tear” our minds and bodies experience as we attempt to cope with our continually changing environment.

Page 6 General Awareness Types of stress It is a contributory factor in minor conditions, such as headaches, digestive problems, skin complaints, insomnia and ulcers. Excessive, prolonged and unrelieved stress can have a harmful effect on mental, physical and spiritual health. Stress can also have a positive effect, spurring motivation and awareness, providing the stimulation to cope with challenging situations. Stress also provides the sense of urgency and alertness needed for survival when confronting threatening situations. Negative stressPositive stress
2012-Dec Restricted © Siemens 2013 All rights reserved. Page 7 General Awareness The individual Everyone is different, with unique perceptions of, and reactions to, events. There is no single level of stress that is optimal for all people. Some are more sensitive owing to experiences in childhood, the influence of teachers, parents and religion etc. Most of the stress we experience is self-generated. How we perceive life - whether an event makes us feel threatened or stimulated, encouraged or discouraged, happy or sad - depends to a large extent on how we perceive ourselves. Self-generated stress is something of a paradox, because so many people think of external causes when they are upset. Recognising that we create most of our own upsets is an important first step towards coping with them.
2012-Dec Restricted © Siemens 2013 All rights reserved. Page 8 General Awareness Stress response - Endocrine system Endocrine system Stress response controlled by the Endocrine System. Demands on the physical or mental systems of the body result in hormone secretion (Adrenaline, testosterone) Endocrine system responses Increased pupil dilation Perspiration Increased heart rate and blood pressure Rapid breathing Muscle tenseness Increased mental alertness
2012-Dec Restricted © Siemens 2013 All rights reserved. Page 9 This is the “Fight or Flight” response that prepares the body for immediate action. General Awareness General adaptation syndrome Alarm response Adaptation Exhaustion If the source persists, the body prepares for long-term protection, secreting hormones to increase blood sugar levels. This phase is common and not necessarily harmful, but must include periods of relaxation and rest to counterbalance the stress response. Fatigue, concentration lapses, irritability and lethargy result as the stress turns negative. In chronic stress situations, sufferers enter the exhaustion phase: emotional, physical and mental resources suffer heavily. The body experiences ‘adrenal exhaustion’ leading to decreased stress tolerance, progressive mental and physical exhaustion, illness and collapse.

2012-Dec Restricted © Siemens 2013 All rights reserved. Page 12 Stress at Work Why do we work? Work provides an income and fulfils a variety of other needs; mental and physical exercise, social contact, a feeling of self-worth and competence.
2012-Dec Restricted © Siemens 2013 All rights reserved. Page 13 Stress at Work Factors influencing work stress The drive for success Society is driven by ‘work’, Personal adequacy equates with professional success, We crave status and abhor failure. Our culture demands monetary success / professional status. Uncertainty About the individuals work role - objectives, responsibilities, and expectations, and a lack of communication and feedback can result in confusion, helplessness, and stress. Changing work patterns Unemployment, redundancy, shorter working weeks, new technology affect emotional and physical security. No more jobs for life, more short - term contracts. Financial and emotional burnout is increasing among all levels. Conflict Stress can arise from work the individual does not want to do or that conflicts with their personal, social and family values. Working conditions Physical and mental health is adversely affected by unpleasant working conditions, such as high noise levels, lighting, temperature and unsocial or excessive hours. Responsibility The greater the level of responsibility the greater the potential level of stress. Overwork Stress may occur through an inability to cope with the technical or intellectual demands of a particular task. Circumstances such as long hours, unrealistic deadlines and frequent interruptions will compound this. Relationships at work Good relationships with colleagues are crucial. Open discussion is essential to encourage positive relationships. Under-work This may arise from boredom because there is not enough to do, or because a job is dull, no value added and repetitive. Change at work Changes that alter psychological, physiological and behavioral routines such as promotion, retirement and redundancy are particularly stressful. Factors influencing work stress

2012-Dec Restricted © Siemens 2013 All rights reserved. Page 18 A B C Strategy Stress management - techniques Change Your Thinking Re-framing is a technique to change the way you look at things in order to feel better about them. There are many ways to interpret the same situation so pick the one you like. Re-framing does not change the external reality, but helps you view things in a different light and less stressfully. Re-framing Forget powerlessness, dejection, despair, failure Stress leaves us vulnerable to negative suggestion so focus on positives; Focus on your strengths Learn from the stress you are under Look for opportunities Seek out the positive - make a change. Positive thinking
2012-Dec Restricted © Siemens 2013 All rights reserved. Page 19 A B C Strategy Stress management - techniques Change your behaviour Be assertive Get Organised VentilationHumour Diversion and distraction Assertiveness helps to manage stressful situations, and will, in time, help to reduce their frequency. Lack of assertiveness often shows low self-esteem and low self-confidence. The key to assertiveness is verbal and non-verbal communication. Extending our range of communication skills will improve our assertiveness. Poor organization is one of the most common causes of stress. Structured approaches offer security against ‘out of the blue’ problems. Prioritizing objectives, duties and activities makes them manageable and achievable. Don’t overload your mind. Organization will help avoid personal and professional chaos. ‘A problem shared is a problem halved’ Develop a support network through friends or colleagues to talk with. It’s not always events that are stressful but how we perceive them. Writing a diary or notes may help release feelings but do not re-read what has been written. Good stress - reducer Applies at home and work Relieves muscular tension Improves breathing Pumps endorphins into the bloodstream - the body’s natural painkillers Take time out Get away from things that bother you Doesn’t solve the problem Reduce stress level Calm down Think logically
