Chapter 5. Survive Long-Term Stress > Build Defences Against Stress

Build Defences Against Stress

If stress is an inherent part of your job, you can take steps to defend yourself against its effects. There are support networks that you can call upon, and ways of adjusting your lifestyle to maximize your resilience.

Look for Help

When you are under intense stress, it is very natural to withdraw from the world and concentrate exclusively on solving the problem that is causing the stress. Sometimes this is a useful and appropriate reaction, but often it is not, especially as your projects become larger and more complex. One person working on his own simply cannot achieve tasks that are greater than a certain size. Similarly, many stressful situations cannot be resolved without looking for and getting the help of other people.
