Mind, a nonprofit in the UK, surveyed 2,000 individuals to find out what stresses them out most. And the answer is (drumroll please)….work! (Turns out a lot of us are having trouble convincing ourselves that our daily toil is “just a job.”) About 34 percent of participants said they consider their job very stressful. Money problems took second place (30 percent of people said it was their top stressor), and health issues came in third (with 17 percent of the vote). About one in five respondents said they’ve taken off a day of work because they were stressed—though 90 percent gave their boss a different excuse.
Does your job stress you out too much? And if so, would you ever tell your boss that it does?
