Before I ‘retired’ and we started Christian House Sitters I was very involved in Stress Management. You can read about it on our website.
I therefore thought it may be helpful to include a few interesting articles on stress in this blog.
If you are suffering from severe stress please get professional help.
10% of workers take no holidays – stress survey
One in five workers did not take all their holiday leave last year in a sign of the increasing stress levels of British employees.
Research by online travel firm Opodo found that one in 10 worked all year without taking any time off.
Almost two out of three people never taking a proper lunch break and some spend all weekend thinking about work.
Opodo has launched a campaign to allow workers to clock off early on Fridays.
Nine out of 10 of those questioned said they felt stressed from work and half regularly worked unpaid overtime.
Stress expert Professor Cary Cooper, said: “Employers have seriously got their head in the sand if they don’t take immediate action.
“People simply aren’t going to be productive if they don’t get a long enough break and are so stressed that when they do they still can’t switch off.”
