There’s a big difference between stress and pressure.
While most of us need a small amount of pressure to motivate us to work our hardest, too much pressure can lead to stress.
According to the NHS, stress can have a negative impact on our health. It is thought to account for 40% of cases of workplace sickness in the UK per year.
With that in mind, NHS Choices has created this online tool to help you recognise whether or not your job is leading to stress.
Answer a few simple questions about your feelings at work and the tool will provide you with relevant links and advice to help you minimise the stress that you experience.
