Effective Solutions for Reduced Stress and Wellness at Work 

(Employers and Employees)

Today, organizations, managers, and their employees are under tremendous pressures from staff cuts, downsizing, and increased expectations of bottom line financial results.  Today there is less time and fewer resources to accomplish work objectives.  Everyone from top management to employees is experiencing work-related stress.  Pressures and deadlines, as well as feeling lack of control at work can affect mental and physical health.

For many, the modern work environment requires more sitting and less physical activity, though more mental demands than ever before.   Professionals are busier than ever, regardless of modern technology.  The demands of airline flights with late evenings, time zone changes, long hours on the computer, all contribute to stress.   Stress-related illnesses are on the rise, and account for a large portion of patients seen by physicians.  The outcome is often a tired, overworked, and aching body, and an irritable and uptight mental state.  Often, we adopt maladaptive habits regarding the way we treat our bodies at work, and unrealistic expectations of what our bodies are capable of enduring.   However, most working individuals spend at least one-third of their lives at work.  Your body is a machine, and requires optimal care for peace of mind, work effectiveness, and longevity.
