According to Freud and Jung, pioneers of Psychodynamic theory, the concept of the “unconscious” may be the answer to de-stressing your life! Psychodynamic theory praises the ability to achieve unconscious awareness; gaining a thorough and complete understanding of oneself; ones emotions, needs, wants, motives, etc. Psychologists have now applied such theories to the working world.
In order to succeed in gaining unconscious awareness, one must become more attentive to their surroundings. According to one study, we must realize that our environment is constantly changing, and unavoidably so. Some adapt well to these stressors, and some, well, not as much. The difference in response is based on fear; the amount we feel threatened by a situation determines our reaction. Most of the time, this fear is unwarranted; we need not feel intimidated. However, due to biological instinct, for the most part, this response is automatically triggered. By paying closer attention to our surroundings, we are actually becoming less subjective to stress! So next time you feel stressed at the office, carefully re-evaluate the situation. It may not be as taxing as you once thought!
