If the title of this blog caught your attention, you're most likely stressed and congratulations, you're normal! But when does stress become unhealthy and how can it be kept under control?
According to Dr. Alan Shelton, M.D., in his book Transforming Burnout, feeling a loss of energy for one's work or profession... followed by a sense of being used up or depleted... is a sure sign of burnout, and stress is its major contributing factor. Many people are stressed at work because of impending deadlines or a heavy work load, among other reasons. Under tight budgets, do the companies we work for have an obligation to help keep our stress levels under control? If you ask me, they definitely do! Encouraging people to be physically active during work hours and providing healthy food options in the cafeteria, vending machines and during meetings, are a huge plus. Companies can do much more as well.
Here are the signs your stressed and headed for burnout - but wait, there are answers too! Learn what you can do to help yourself! Just as much as I believe your company has an obligation to you, you have an obligation to yourself and your health.
