Stress is something that affects all of us from time to time. Whether it be exams, work, family life or situations such as being in a car crash. Stress can be a long-term problem, and what makes one person stressed might not be the same as for another person. Stress can cause problems, making you unable to work or partake in everyday life, in fact, it costs the economy lots of money each year in lost working days.
Thankfully, employers are becoming increasingly understanding, and even taking steps to reduce stress in the workplace. It’s important that we learn to balance the positive and negative, and take steps ourselves to minimise our stress – but it’s important first to understand what they are. NCC Home Learning have produced this interesting infographic on the cause and effects of stress, as well as some ways to minimise it.
