Mental Wellness – Managing Negative Emotions at Work

A Report by CYS Global Remit Human Resource Management Unit 

In the upcoming weeks, we will be sharing with you tips and tricks on how to manage your mental wellness.  Achieving good mental health will enable you to realise your own abilities, cope with the stress and challenges of life, engage in productive work, and contribute to the company and community.  

In today's fast-paced and demanding work environments, it’s not uncommon to experience negative emotions such as stress, anxiety, frustration, or even anger.  These emotions can take a toll on our mental wellness, affecting productivity, job satisfaction, and overall well-being.   

However, with the right strategies and tools, it's possible to navigate through these challenges and foster a positive work environment conducive to mental wellness.  Recently, CYS Global Remit Human Resource Management Unit did a survey with our colleagues on some tips on how they manage negative emotions at work.  Here are some of their feedback.  

Talent Acquisition & Management Trainee Jayley Chua says her approach to managing stress is by compartmentalizing it into work-related and personal aspects.  The 28-year-old former SIA stewardess endeavours to keep emotions isolated, ensuring they don't spill over from one domain to another.  Jayley achieves this by consciously leaving personal matters at home and work-related issues at the office.  During her daily commute, she utilizes the time to instruct her mind to release negative emotions, allowing her to start afresh at work or return home with a clear mindset.  

Another young colleague Derrick Pang, a Management Associate in the Client Management Unit, shares his coping mechanisms for dealing with emotions such as anxiety, worry, frustration, and anger.   At 26 years old, the NUS fresh graduate practices deep breathing and relaxation techniques, taking slow and deliberate breaths until he achieves a sense of calm.  Additionally, Derrick finds solace in taking walks, listening to relaxing music, or confiding in a colleague who can help him regain composure during stressful moments at work.  

Dealing with negative emotions at work is inevitable and learning how to cope with these feelings is important.  Use these tips and tricks suggested by our CYS Global Remit colleagues to help in managing any negative emotions you may face during work. Remember, prioritizing mental wellness not only benefits you but also contributes to a healthier and more productive workplace.
