Worksite Wellness - Stressed Out? 6 Tips To Reduce Work-Life Stress And Improve Your Health

Just turn on the news and you'll be hearing about the latest company down-sizing, right-sizing, slow down, re-organizing, down economy or as the financial advisers say - economic winter. What about you? All this bad news and at work you're burned out, exhausted mentally and physically. Have you asked yourself - "at what price?"

As your responsibilities grow, your shoulders become heavy with the burden of your life as it gets busier and more stressed day-by-day. With constant worry, increased responsibilities and more work - life becomes frantic. Our head becomes heavy with fatigue and dizziness; this is enough to not only make you feel tired but make you sick too. Really sick.

Stress can be different things to different people. For most of us stress is commonly caused by a feeling of too much work, too little time, financial loss, feeling out of control all of which contribute to thoughts which can make you feel depressed. Everyone suffers from stress at some point in his or her life, but the real challenge is to overpower and kill the stress developing inside you, and NOT to get killed by it.

Stress is connected to chronic ailments such as back pain, headaches and fatigue. Chronic diseases such as the flu, obesity, diabetes, heart disease, stroke, cancer, Crohn's Disease, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, GERD just to name a few are all impacted by long-term stress. The connection between your perception of stress and your body's ability to fight off disease is so strong some experts think stress can be "deadly". So you're right, your job is killing you and now we can prove it! Feel better?
