Secondhand Stress Spreaders Can Ruin Decorum & Productivity

“There is no time to think … just do it already!” 

Is there a rusher in your life? Whether it is at work, at home, or out and about, have you ever been around someone who is always on the go, jumps from one task to another, and is non-stop busy 24/7? Does that person’s hurrying and scurrying raise your stress level? 

If so, you are not alone. Several experts in the field of stress management believe that these types of individuals causes second-hand stress to those around them, according to a post by The Wall Street Journal.

People who obsessively multitask may be more harmful than helpful, because their behavior stresses out those around them. Three separate sources claim that this personality type could adversely impact decorum by raising anxiety levels, prompting resentment, and making others feel inferior. It also could lead to others avoiding these individuals, or making them feel desperate when communicating with a rusher is a necessity.  

There is big difference between appearing to be busy and actually being productive. Keep those mowing blades sharp!      

…. Open-plan offices help spread the contagion. When the boss has a view of the entire office, no one wants to be seen as the slowest moving object in the solar system.
