In our ultra-connected society, we are constantly in demand, so much so that a quarter of working people struggle to manage the mental load and the stress of professional life.

A situation that undermines our body on a daily basis.

How to get rid of pressure at work?


Better understand pressure

In a world that advocates surpassing oneself and performance 24 hours a day, it is important to succeed.

Succeed in your private life, your professional life and everything you do.

If success is a goal to be achieved from an early age, what is its true definition?

What if succeeding finally rhymed with accomplishment?

To give substance to this idea in a constructive and not ultra-productive way, we advise you first to list what tarnishes your daily life at work and to identify who puts you under pressure.

Yourself ?

Your entourage ?

Your superior?

All at once ?

You have targeted the problem, place for the solutions.

Imperfection is good

Inflicting too much pressure on yourself at work plunges us into a vicious circle, since by dint of ruminating on a past failure, we quickly produce new ones.

First of all, don't forget that no one is perfect and that real life is much less idyllic than what social networks show.

Learn to be less demanding of yourself and to tolerate imperfect situations.

You will gain in lucidity and thus reduce your stress and your guilt.

Learn to say no and delegate

Do you feel underwater and can't make ends meet?

Do not panic.

Instead of suffering your life at work, learn to be an actor and to take the right distance.

We put our pride aside and we try to delegate.

Asking for help or entrusting a task to a colleague is not synonymous with failure, but with wisdom, even anticipation, in order to be able to favor quality over quantity.

Similarly, learn to say no.

You don't have a minute to take care of this file?

Too bad, refusing is not an affront.

You have the right to do so and it will not affect your professional value.

Remember to listen to your body

When we're stressed and on edge, we don't necessarily see our own warning signs.

However, our body knows perfectly how to ring the alarm bell if we want to listen to it.

Watch for signs of fatigue such as cold sores, crying spells, ruminations, eczema, lack of sleep, appetite disorders... All these bodily manifestations are to be taken seriously because they alert your brain to exhaustion that could lead to


, depression or a severe nervous breakdown.

So if these symptoms set in, a piece of advice: react by slowing down a little.

A mantra to do yourself good

To stop being alienated by the obligations we have set ourselves, everyone goes with their own ideas.

Repeating optimistic and reassuring phrases such as "I'll get there" or "just a little more effort" can be a good way to reduce the pressure.

Meditation is also a highly recommended practice to relieve the stress of professional life.

At the rate of 5 minutes, and this, 5 to 10 times a day, try to isolate yourself from what is parasitic on you by doing breathing exercises in order to reconnect with yourself, and to anchor yourself in the present.

It is also important to exchange to free oneself.

Indeed, when we are under pressure, we tend to close in on ourselves, which feeds the infernal spiral.

Talking with colleagues, relatives or a health professional can then have many benefits.

Sport is still one of the best anti-stress solutions.

Practicing regular physical activity will allow you to oxygenate your body and mind.

To prevent work from encroaching on your private life and polluting you day and night, you must also learn to disconnect.

Phones and computers are turned off at bedtime, for quality rest time.

Finally, if your daily life at work no longer allows you to flourish, think about changing direction, region, or even career because your health comes before any job.
