Emotions are inevitable at work. Supportiv’s new collection of articles helps tap into those feelings (yours or a colleague’s) to improve well-being and productivity.
BERKELEY, Calif., May 23, 2022 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — For employers and employees alike, uncontrolled emotions can complicate workplace relationships and routines. Supportiv, the on-demand peer-to-peer emotional support service, is releasing a new collection of mental health resources to help understand and manage emotional difficulties in the workplace.
From retail to remote work, emotional upheavals can impact productivity, alter the way we connect with others, and even cloud judgment. If common emotional struggles in the workplace, such as stress, procrastination, and burnout, are not resolved, it becomes more difficult for us to respond to the needs of others with grace.
Supportiv CEO and Co-Founder Helena Plater-Zyberk expands on this idea, sharing that “In the workplace, each individual’s emotions impact the team. It can make it attractive to calm your feelings. You don’t want to be judged or brought up However, if you don’t find effective ways to deal with and heal difficult emotions, their negative impact, both personally and on those around you, can increase.
Co-founder of Supportiv Pouria Mojabi adds that “Acknowledging difficult emotions can feel like sending you on a downward spiral. In reality, it’s the opposite. If we don’t acknowledge what we’re going through, we’re less likely to find solutions and more likely to act without even realizing it.At work, it’s especially important to notice our feelings, so that we can find ways to deal with them.
