It is quite unbelievable that nearly 50% of Australia's workforce are victims of stress, causing them to suffer a host of stress related ailments.
Statistics show that nearly 60% of 16 -18 year olds are stressed out.
Stress which is known to trigger even depression and heart disease is mainly work-related for most victims, according to a recent poll. Stress related problems are also getting worse each year.
Experts have underlined the importance of stress management programmes, as prolonged stress can damage the immune system and affect our internal organs.
"Aussies must take stress management more seriously because stress can have very real and detrimental effects; from an adverse impact on our physical appearance to our ability to sleep, and direct impacts on our internal organs. This is serious stuff," experts cautioned.
