Workplace Stress

A work-life balance is crucial to good health. Long working hours brought about by career aspirations, a commitment to the business, or unreasonable expectations can cause panic attacks, anxiety, indecision and an inability to function at home and at work.

Identifying the early signs of stress is important. Responding to these signs by discussing the situation with your employer is necessary. Your employer cannot correct the problem if the employer is unaware of it. Your employer cannot disregard your concerns.
