Workplace stress is far too common nowadays, and too much stress in your life is not good for you as it can cause stress-related illnesses e.g. diabetes, irritable bowel, migraine, back and neck pain, high blood pressure, heart disease/strokes, mental ill-health – depression, anxiety & stress.
Stress can be caused by the pressures of our busy lives. If we know what is causing the stress it can be easier to address the problems. Sometimes workplace stress can easily be overcome by simply changing your job.
• Work-related – Work overload, unemployment or retirement.
• Health – Chronic pain, terminal illness or injury.
