Job stress is silently making your heart ill

It is no secret to anyone that job stress can really have a toll on your body. The list of side effects is endless and now, we need to add heart disease to that list my friends.

Do you really know how to recognize if you are actually being affected by stress at your job?

I just know you are asking yourself the following question: Do you really know how to recognize if you are actually being affected by stress at your job? There are some ways you can clearly know this:

  • If you get mad over the fact that there is coffee with sugar in the office rather than sugar free coffee and you make a big deal about it, you may be affected by stress
  • If you feel like you are having a really hard time getting that excel file done and you just feel like all the numbers get mixed as you see them, you may be having a hard time concentrating due to stress
  • If your blood pressure that probably is already high, just goes over the roof whenever you are faced with hard situations that stress you out. This is definitely affecting your heart.
