Everyone in life seems to be stressed out. It is rampant in the workplace. There are many different types of stress that people experience, but the workplace seems to be the main place where it is experienced. Part of the reason for that is people are working very hard and for long hours. That creates stress in them.

Key Takeaways:

  • There are lots of different types of stress, but the workplace seems to be the number 1 stressor for Americans.
  • Part of the blame has to be put on Americans working longer and harder than ever before.
  • In some workplaces there is the expectation, that you are expected to receive email in the evenings or weekends when you would normally be relaxing.

“The American Institute for Stress is saying 40% of workers reported their job was very or extremely stressful and 25% view their jobs as the number one stressor in their lives.”
