    Causes of Stress

    Everyone has different stress triggers. Work stress tops the list, according to surveys. Forty percent of U.S. workers admit to experiencing office stress, and one-quarter say work is the biggest source of stress in their lives.

    Causes of work stress include:

    Being unhappy in your job

    Having a heavy workload or too much responsibility

    Working long hours

    Having poor management, unclear expectations of your work, or no say in the decision-making process

    Working under dangerous conditions

    Being insecure about your chance for advancement or risk of termination

    Having to give speeches in front of colleagues

    Facing discrimination or harassment at work, especially if your company isn't supportive

    Life stresses can also have a big impact. Examples of life stresses are:

    The death of a loved one


    Loss of a job

    Increase in financial obligations

    Getting married

    Moving to a new home

    Chronic illness or injury

    Emotional problems (depression, anxiety, anger, grief, guilt, low self-esteem)

    Taking care of an elderly or sick family member

    Traumatic event, such as a natural disaster, theft, rape, or violence against you or a loved one
