Stress is estimated to cost American businesses up to $300 billion a year and has been labelled the 'Health Epidemic of the 21st Century' by the World Health Organisation (G Fink, 2016). Numerous studies show that job stress is by far the major source of stress for many adults, and in a recent global survey, employers identified stress as the number one health risk factor in nearly all surveyed countries (Towers Watson, 2014).
Are you finding that constant stress has left you feeling disillusioned, helpless, and exhausted? If so, you may be suffering from burnout. When you’re burned out, things look bleak, problems seem impossible to overcome, and it’s difficult to muster up the energy to do anything about your situation.
