STRESS

Stress is actually a normal part of life. At times, it serves a useful purpose. Stress can motivate you to get that promotion at work or run the last mile of a marathon. But if you don’t get a handle on your stress and it becomes long-term, it can seriously interfere with your job, family life and health.More than 70% of Nigerians experience real physical and emotional symptoms of stress.

The Causes of Stress can not be underemphasized as everyone has different stress triggers. Work stress tops the list, according to surveys.40% of Nigerian workers admit to experiencing office stress, and one-quarter say work is the biggest source of stress in their lives.
