Did you use to thrive on pressure at work? Some pressure at work can be motivating, even exhilarating, but when pressure becomes excessive, it can eventually lead to work-related stress.
When is work-related stress a problem?
When excessive pressures and demands at work lead to adverse reactions, it may be time to reach out for help. Stress symptoms may include a pounding heart, heart palpitations, dry mouth, headaches, odd aches and pains, loss of appetite for food, decreased sex drive and trouble sleeping. Stress can feed on itself, leading you to unhealthy behaviors that will make you more and more unhappy.
