What to Do if Stress at Work is Affecting Your Health

Advice on Suffering Stress at Work

Everyone feels stress at some point. A little bit of stress can even be good for you but long-term exposure to stress can be seriously bad for your health.

There are several things you can do to actively combat stress. Some stress busters are very simple such as taking deep breaths and making sleep a priority, ensuring you get eight hours of sleep. Exercise which raises your heart rate and makes you sweat can reduce stress and help you to sleep better.

Stress can be caused by many different things. One of the most common causes of stress is work. Working in high pressure jobs and long hours puts you at greater risk of suffering the effects of stress. If you or a member of your family has suffered from Stress at Work and it has affected your health you may well be able to claim compensation from your employers’ insurance company.
