Work is. . . Work
Work, whether you like it or not, you have to go. Sometimes we love our jobs and other times we have to seriously assess whether our health can survive the stress. This article from Very Well Mind, highlights the correlation between a hostile work environment and its toll on mental health. When subjected to extended states of high emotional distress - systems in the body begin to deteriorate.
This is especially pertinent in our current time. There are increased levels of tension from the range of people that have lost their jobs, ones that have had to readjust to working from home, and others that are now making the transition back. It is far from over and while we can't control external events, we can practice regulating our personal worlds. That always begins with our mental wellbeing. Read on for a few simple steps to assess if you are working in a toxic environment and how to handle it.
