Having trouble sleeping? Feeling anxious on your commute into work? Experiencing regular headaches? You might be suffering from work-related stress.
You may not realize it, but stress is serious. It can lead to all sorts of ailments and drains billions from the economy every year. Unfortunately, work is one of the most common causes of stress, with 65 percent of adults saying that their jobs cause them “very or somewhat significant” stress.
Clearly, we’re dealing with a systemic problem, and employers really need to take a look at how they’re treating employees and whether they can do more to reduce stress.
