As authors of the book AgeProof: Living Longer Without Running Out of Money or Breaking a Hip suggest, “When you do things to improve your health, they will improve your wealth. And when you do things to improve your wealth, they will improve your health.” However, more and more people admit that they experience work-related stress on a daily basis.
As a result, prolonged occupational stress leads to reduced performance, affects relationships at work and at home, and impacts overall well-being of an individual. This makes it difficult to maintain a good physical and financial health.
Numerous studies showed that there is a direct link between long-term stress and such health problems as high blood pressure, anxiety, cardio-vascular diseases, increased blood sugar level, insomnia, respiratory problems, chronic fatigue syndrome, weak immune system, weight gain, headaches, impaired memory and concentration.
In addition, in most countries people face extra health care expenses associated with treating of chronic diseases. This means that long-term stress impacts both your health and financial security. That’s why it’s important to learn how to cope with stress and don’t let it affect quality of your life.
