Stress and Anxiety Free

The Problem

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) describes stress as “the adverse reaction people have to excessive pressures or other demands placed on them.”

They also reckon that 40% of work-related illness is caused by stress and that 20% of visits to the GP are due to stress, anxiety and depression. However, if you were to add to that the percentage of people for whom stress has exacerbated a medical condition, the number would rocket up.

Stress can give you palpitations, headaches, digestion problems as well as aches and pains, and on average, for each case of stress, depression or anxiety, 24 days are taken off as sick leave.

But is it any wonder that so many of us are feeling stressed and ill, when you consider the British are putting in an average of 40 days unpaid overtime every year and work the longest hours of anyone in Europe?

Constant overwork is stressful in itself, but add into the mix being given a formal warning, victimisation, bullying, tight deadlines, management changes and personality clashes – and you have a recipe for disaster.

On top of that, the way people try to handle stress, such as overeating, smoking and drinking, can lead to further ill health.
