Beat Stress at Work
How to Balance Your Ambition with Your Anxiety
For some, there is a high price to pay for ambition and success. The toll it can take on our mental health can be significant, particularly if we are born with the ‘Worry’ gene.
In Beat Stress at Work, management trainer Mark Simmonds helps you understand the effects stress and anxiety can have on your mental health and provides tools and advice to find your way through work-induced struggles.
Through sharing his own brutally honest journey and using his corporate experience, Mark sheds light on the difficulty of discussing mental health with colleagues and employers and identifies the best ways for navigating your way through a mental health crisis. The book:
* Encourages you to maintain positive mental health by better understanding yourself and finding a career that suits your most authentic self.
* Shows you how to return safely to the workplace after a period of mental ill health and communicate effectively with your peers and managers.
* Demonstrates how your resilience ‘muscle’ can help you fulfil your ambitions in the professional arena, while being mindful of your mental health.
* Pinpoints some of the key lessons from COVID-19 about stress management and the working environment.
Through the advice in this book, you will learn that your mental health issues may not be the barriers you view them as but may hold value in the workplace. Mark shows you that it is possible to be ambitious and successful at work because of, not in spite of, the mental health challenges you may face.
