77% REGULARLY experience physical symptoms caused by stress
33% believe they are living with extreme stress
48% feel their stress has increased over the past five years
48% have sleeping issues due to stress
$300 BILLION – annual costs to employers for employee stress-related health care and missed work
One thing that can really help is to take all email and Facebook notifications (sounds) off your phone. If you’ve got them buzzing and dinging all day, no matter what you’re in the middle of doing, they will distract you and demand your attention. Are you up for that!?
