Burnout imminent with round-the-clock stress

United Kingdom: A new survey has revealed that extreme and prolonged stress could lead to constant preoccupation heightened by an inability to switch off, could lead to grave health problems, a research has revealed.

The survey also found that not being able to sleep is a top worry for many, along with the rigors of coping with every day life. They are not so much concerned with the bad effects of smoking or drinking, not even diet related issues.

Technology paced living marked by mobiles, internet and e-mail devices have blurred the distinction between workplace and home, costing millions, their health.

Chris Rolland, director of healthcare at Legal and General said: "It is becoming clear that people are far more worried about the way we live our lives, the lack of sleep and stress than smoking and drinking. There are few things more important in life than our health; so it is vital that people look at the causes of a poor lifestyle to ensure their health is not compromised and hopefully prevent burn-out."

Angela Mawle, chief executive of the UK Public Health Association said: "This research shows that the 24/7 society is getting to us. Blackberries and mobile phones mean that we are always on call. It is hard to slow down and people struggle to find the time to relax. This has obvious health implications."

Not surprising that work-related anxiety and depression has simply doubled in a matter of ten years crossing more than a million.
