You spend more than eight hours at your workplace. You need to tackle strict deadlines, ensure that the needs of your clients, customers and colleagues are met in the best possible way. This makes clear sense that when you return home at the end of the day you have tons of frustration and craziness to vent out. It’s usually your spouse who has to deal with your stress and fatigue.
As per a research we get to know that almost 35 per cent of partners report that the most common issue about the source of unhappy relationships is due to work pressure or stress. Long time work stress seems to be highly prevalent in the present time. As pert the survey done through American Psychological Association that 65 per cent of people blamed work strain as the core reason why they get stressed. You need to understand that work stress is one part of our lives that we need to start handling and dealing with. You need to ensure that you know the way of maintaining a healthy personal life and work life balance.
Does work stress does start to affect your relationship?
Relationship experts do agree with the fact that stresses due to work eventually starts to affect your relationship negatively in a devious way. They believe the moment you enter your house with work stress, it turns out being unprocessed activation in your nervous system. A person who is stressed with work wants to get that energy discharged. In such a case, it is the partner unfortunately who becomes to target. If you had a misdirected resentment towards your colleague, then your partner might feel threatened or feel pressurized too.
The moment you start to hurl professional issues at home, issues between couples may arise. In fact, it’s stated that stress itself is the very prime libido killer. Know this that the time that you usually spend with your partner outside the bedroom will start to reflect inside the bedroom too. Thus if there were issues outside it will start to show when you are with your partner inside the bedroom. Usually a person who is stressed wants to snap at their partner or spouse also if their better half is not showing much sympathy towards them, they might start to feel slighted too.
When is the right time ‘to and not to’ vent your stress or frustration?
When you are dealing with some very serious issues or considerations such as quitting job or have a few good openings, then consulting to it about your partner would be a good thing. In fact, when you get a bit stressed and talk to your partner openly about a constructive opinion then this could strengthen your bond.
But again, complaining repeatedly about your bothersome coworker is something that will stress your partner too, when done constantly. Rather than retelling about the annoying details it could be good to express how your day went. You can state that you are exhausted due to the hard or crazy day at office. However, do not delve into the details. This might end up burdening your spouse too, when done recurrently.
If you are the one who is getting stressed at work, try not to make your partner a soundboard at the end of the day. Rather it would be good for you to meditate or listen to a soft music along with your partner after your day has ended.
