THE ROLE STRESS MANAGEMENT ON MAINTAINING WORK BALANCE
1.1 BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY
Work-related stress is an increasing concern across the globe, affecting not just individuals' health and well-being, but also organizational productivity. Most work positions have factors that might induce stress in the individual. Stress not only affects us as individuals, but it also has an influence on our relationships with family, friends, and coworkers. It also has an influence on several aspects of society, such as socialization, and even the economy, due to how stress affects productivity. Workloads that are too heavy, with unreasonable deadlines, cause individuals to feel hurried, under pressure, and overwhelmed. Inadequate workloads, giving individuals the impression that their capabilities are underutilized. Control over job operations is lacking. Creating a balance between work and life may be difficult, since both need your attention and energy. When you correctly balance your professional and personal life, you become healthier, both emotionally and physically, and enjoy a better quality of life. With a work-life balance, you will be able to better manage your time, which will have a good influence on many parts of your life (Maxwell C. 2018).
Stress management refers to a broad range of approaches and psychotherapies aimed at reducing a person's level of stress, particularly chronic stress, with the goal of enhancing daily functioning. Stress causes a variety of physical and mental symptoms that vary depending on the circumstances of each person. These may include deterioration in physical health as well as depression. One of the cornerstones to living a happy and successful life in contemporary society is stress management. Although life has several pressures that might be difficult to manage, stress management offers a variety of methods for managing anxiety and maintaining general well-being.
Stress may be defined as a "imbalance between expectations and resources" or as "pressure that surpasses one's perceived capacity to manage." Stress management was established and is based on the theory that stress is not a direct reaction to a stressor, but rather that one's resources and capacity to deal regulate the stress response and are changeable, enabling stress to be regulated and maintaining a good work-life balance (Deepthi A, Vinay B, & Gowramma Y 2019).
Work-life balance is one of the most pressing concerns confronting today's companies and managers. Employees at all levels are no longer prepared to sacrifice their quality of life for a fair standard of living. Managers can no longer afford to disregard the expenses that a long-hours culture puts on their company. Overwork leads to stress-related absenteeism, low retention, poor inventiveness, bad customer service, and unethical employee behavior. When you consider the dangers of being sued by a stressed employee or a parent who needed to work flexibly, then need for reviewing job description by employers and employees looking for coping strategies to manage work stress comes to play. Therefore it is upon the above premise that this study bis set to examine the role of stress management on maintaining work balance.

This emphasizes the need of controlling job stress while also keeping balance in other parts of life. Work-life balance and stress are inextricably linked. What seems to important in this respect is the significance employees have on maintaining a sense of balance in their life, as well as the efficacy of workplace rules and practices in assisting them to attain this aim.
