In this increasingly fast paced modern world we live in, the everyday pressures we have to face such as traffic congestion, pollution, noise, overcrowding, job insecurity etc. are all stressors which take their toll upon our physical, mental and emotional well-being. Tackling stress is particularly important.
A certain kind of stress can be motivating, but on the other hand, a noisy environment, deadlines, sitting all day in front of a computer screen, work overload, rushing from meeting to meeting, difficult clients or work colleagues etc., can all create a build up of negative stress which can eventually lead to illness.
"Stressed workers suffer a greatly increased risk of heart disease. Stressful jobs have a direct biological impact on the body. Workers under 50 who said their work was stressful were 68% more likely to develop heart disease than the stress-free." European Heart Journal
"Stress is still seen as the biggest threat to the welfare of the UK workers with more than four in ten senior human resource professionals surveyed singling out stress as the main health concern of the workforce." HSA
The Health and Safety Executive has indicated that:
Stress is likely to become the most dangerous risk to business in the early part of the 21st century.
One in five workers report feeling extremely stressed at work. This equates to 5 million in the UK.
Self-reported work-related stress, depression or anxiety account for an estimated 10.5 million reported
lost working days per year in Britain.
