Employees may well be familiar with workplace stress. A growing number of businesses have decided to recognise it, making them better equipped to tackle it. But, it is also true that a little stress at work can actually be good for you and your productivity if you handle it properly.
According to the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), 40% of all work-related illnesses are due to stress, with around 105 million working days being lost because of this each year.
From the very moment we leave the house to catch the London Tube, to the moment we head out of the office doors to do the same to go home, there are stressful situations that can build-up.
In this video by Scientific America, they explain what happens when stress is built-up and how it could be a good thing. So, the next time a deadline looms and you feel under pressure, you might be able to manage it better than you first thought.
