Everyone uses this word so loosely but there are different types of stress that affect our health in awful ways. How stressed are you at ‘year end’?
Some of the biggest challenges businesses face at year end are:
-Not allowing enough time to complete your year end finances
-Technological road blocks
-not understanding your software to the fullest
-Lack of help/support to meet your deadlines
The stress incurred from these things can range from psychological stress or ‘burnout to muscle pain.According to Health Canada’s, Healthy Living, It’s Your Health; http://www.hc-sc.gc.ca/hl-vs/iyh-vsv/life-vie/stress-eng.php the health effects from stress can range from heart disease to some types of bowel disease to mental illness. Cardiologists are finding that the spike of adrenaline from being stressed can cause symptoms of a heart attack. Prolonged exposure to these types of stresses can indeed kill you.
There are many ways to avoid these situations such as:
• Creating a schedule for completion of all the things you require for month end. This way everything is not left to the last minute.
• Resources to help train staff on the software you use
• Hiring specialized interim people who will surely make your year end process run much smoother.
