Scott’s Answer

There are many different things in life that can cause stress and work is definitely a major one for me. Some things that have helped me manage stress are as follows: making to do list, setting boundaries, not saying "yes" to everything that comes my way, and taking breaks to step outside. These are just a few things that help me but remember we are all different so I'd recommend trying multiple things to see what works best for you!

Renata’s Answer

There is stress in every career, I think. In my specific career as a retail pharmacist, it’s to make sure the right medication is dispensed and to the right person. It can also be stressful to keep up with workflow and to get everything done in time. However, if you just focus and take your time to do a task or take a double check at the prescription, the stress is manageable. Dealing with customers can also be stressful but it’s part of the job.

Tammy’s Answer

As with any job there will always be some level of stress, but it’s about how you handle it. There are times during the work day with busy patient schedules, phone calls that need addressed for various patient care coordination, or doing peer to peers with insurance company doctors to help get a test or procedure approved for a patient that it can get overwhelming. What makes it manageable is working as a team with your nurses, doctors, and front staff to coordinate all of this. I handle stress with daily exercise, it may sound cliche, but exercise is really the best medicine. Others management tools such as meditation, yoga, having or finding a good support system in colleagues, friends or family are very helpful as well.

Meghan’s Answer

Hi Jamarquai!

During college I learned there are different types of stress. Specifically, I learned the difference between "eustress" and "distress". Eustress is the positive form of stress that makes you complete tasks and accomplish your goals. Distress is the negative form of stress which can be overwhelming and debilitating. Thinking about stress this way really changed the way I handled it because I recognized that stress can be a good thing. There were a lot of times in school and during my career that I felt stressed out (I had deadlines and assignments to complete), but amazing accomplishments came out of that stress. When I feel stressed I take a step back and ask myself if something positive will come out of overcoming the challenge/obstacle, and if so, it motivates me to power through.

When stress feels like it's having a negative effect on you and there is not a positive outcome, you may be in distress. I find that distress is best to talk to a trusted friend, family member, or mental health professional about. Ultimately, you will have distressing times throughout your life but how you respond to the stress is important. Reaching out to people and asking for help/advice can be hard/awkward, but it can really help you!
