In order to stay positive in the workplace, Dr Rick Norris, chartered psychologist and author of Think Yourself Happy, said it is important for staff not to take too much on or - conversely - leave themselves with too little to do.
Most typically people think about work overload as being the main problem and cause of stress, with have too much to do and not enough time to do it in, but this is not the only thing that can cause anxiety, he explained.
"Although it's much less the cause these days, you can get the reverse, which is work underload. This is where people don't have sufficient work, or sufficiently challenging or stimulating work," Dr Norris noted.
Workers may find that this can be an issue in environments where work is quite repetitive, so the key is to ensure, where possible, that workloads are manageable and sufficient to keep people occupied, in order to keep stress at bay.
