Ottawa Workplace Stress

Workplace Stress

Freud stated that work and love are the main occupations of people, and since 1/3 of the day is about work, we need to find ways to make that time and experience as healthy and fulfilling as possible.

On the other hand, research suggests that 60% of people are doing work that they do not really like, and often there might not be much choice.  Sometimes the best opportunity available is simply not what you want to be doing.  The friction caused by your expectations of an occupation, and the reality often results in workplace stress.  Even when your expectations do match the reality of your job, the workplace can still be very stressful.  Workplace stress is common, and with the pace that is expected of Ottawa workers that really is no surprise. Thankfully, counselling can help with workplace stress.
