It's everyone's wish to achieve their dream job in the organization they deserve to be. On the way for the preparation of any job, a balanced and cool mind is very necessary. It is very important to remember that good mental health and good management go hand in hand.
A healthy work environment has a great role to play as it increases one's productivity upto 12%. Research conducted by Morneau Shepall, a human resource company in Canada has found that workplace stress was the top cause of mental health issues followed by trauma.
The atmosphere at the workplace has a major contribution to the mental health issue of its employees. A positive work environment enhances every quality of the employee and they feel the freedom to speak up, share their views and participate positively in every happening. This positive attitude towards the work, in turn, brings a good name and prosperity to the organization.
But workplaces that have a comparatively low vibe, tend to affect the productivity of the employees. In such a place, the employees often feel mentally stressed. This stress is often accompanied by various feelings like insecurity, ashamed, worries about getting fired.

Talking to Fit Northeast, Dr. Neog said that stress is something that is a very intimate part of every workplace. But still, there are a few things in our hands, which will help us be fine in midst of all the tension in the offices.
The first is the capacity to "Let Go". Dr. Neog added that there are many things/ comments which can be avoided or ignored, should not be given much attention.
"Since tensions and mental abuses are a part of most workplaces, colleagues play an important part in sharing and easing the emotional pain or mental trauma one goes through. It is very important for every person to have faith in themselves as it will keep in motivating them to bring out their best at their workplaces," he said.
He added that if sometimes one goes through extremes of mental or any kind of abuse, they should be strong and boldly face the issue instead of being silent and feeling guilty.
"Another thing which is very important is to take breaks in between works and recharge the mind after a certain interval. Dr. Neog said that every person has the key in their own hand and they know how they can do it in the best way. So they should always do things in their way as per their comfort. They should have a clear focus," Dr. Neog pointed out.
