We can also feel stress when work demands overwhelm other important areas of our lives. Read our article, The Wheel of Life, to find out how to bring things back into balance.

A Final Note

Stress-released adrenaline can be a life-saver. For example, if we are faced with extreme physical danger, it triggers our "fight, flight or freeze" response. But this isn't useful in a workplace situation, where rational thinking is needed.

Identifying and tackling the causes of stress can help us to think clearly and make good choices if we feel that we are losing control.

Next week, you can explore a powerful model for assessing the strength of your position in a marketplace, and watch our new video to find out how to look at problems from different perspectives.

Have a great week!
