Stress management starts with identifying the sources of stress in your life. This isn't as easy as it sounds and it may seem like there is nothing you can do about your stress level. However, you have more control than you might think. (MORE) The word stress came from the Latin words, “strictus,” meaning “compressed” and “Stringere,” meaning “to draw tight.”It was first used in a psychological sense in 1942.

Did you know that... adults who regularly get 7.5 to 9 hours of sleep per night are up to 20% more productive. 61% of employees are more productive when the dress code is relaxed.

According to The American Institute of Stress: About 33% of people report feeling extreme stress. 77% of people experience stress that affects their physical health 73% of people have stress that impacts their mental health. 48% of people have trouble sleeping because of stress.

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and acute stress disorder are stress disorders triggered by traumatic experiences. Currently, 3.5% of adults in the U.S. have PTSD during a given year. Acute stress disorder affects as many as half of all people exposed to a serious or life-threatening stressor. Depending on a person’s thinking patterns and coping skills, almost anything can cause stress. Some of the most frequently cited sources of stress include: Money, Work, The economy, Family responsibilities, Relationships, Personal health issues, Housing costs, Job stability, Family health problems, and Personal safety.

It’s estimated that American employers spend $300 billion every year on health care and lost work days linked to stress. Up to 80% of workplace accidents come from stress or stress-related problems, like being too distracted or tired. Stress is a costly issue in other areas of the world, too.
