Stress in the Workplace

And Qualitative Overload which involves not so much work to do but work that is too difficult. An overload worker can develop stress conditions and worst burn-out.

High level of adrenalin is released from the adrenal glands leading to increase in blood pressure and heart rate. Extra sugar is released to the blood stream which leads to further physical illness.

Nice and interesting articles both Raj and Joel. Headaches, exhaustion, fatigue all can also cause stress. These days, with peer pressure in schools, colleges, work and home all combine to cause lot of stress among the individuals. This is the reason why yoga, meditation and laughter therapies are becoming more and more popular. Exercise and swimming can also help you to relieve your body of some stress and helps in sleeping better. At times, stress and tension can also cause insomnia.
