The Impact of Stress
We live in a stress filled world. And every year it seems as if things just get more and more hectic. For many of us this can seem overwhelming. We can quickly get to the point where we no longer feel in control of our lives. We feel out of balance, as if we are constant struggling just to stay above water.
All of these stresses take a tremendous toll on our bodies and our minds. We operate best when we are in a state of homeostasis. This can be described as a state of equilibrium, where we are in physical and mental balance.
Getting from our current place of stress and anxiety to that ideal state of homeostasis is the goal of an effective corporate wellness program.
Stress & the Modern Worker
For many of us, the workplace represents our biggest generator of stress. We constantly feel the need to be more productive, more effective, and faster than we were before.
Every week it seems that we have more duties to perform and less time to do it. That is a perfect recipe for stress, anxiety and, eventually burnout.
In the face of the anxiety that overwhelms us we look for instant solutions to calm us down. We indulge in fast food, overload on caffeine, deprive ourselves of sleep, and spend inordinate amounts of time on social media or in front of the TV screen.
The ironic thing is that all of these instant remedies are actually counter-productive. They weaken our immune system, produce more of the stress hormone cortisol and feed the stress loop.
One consequence of our stressed-out lives is that many people have an extremely weak immune system. We have seen how dangerous that can be in recent months. Reports suggest that 90% of all cases of Covid-19 were in people with weakened immune systems.
Other effects of stress and our inability to effectively deal with it are:
- poor eating and sleeping habits
- low physical activity
- cardiovascular disease
- migraine headaches
- bad moods
- reduced productivity
- increased sick leave
- depression, anxiety
All of this is a recipe for disaster in the workplace.
Consider the outcomes:
- Bad mood and lack of focus
- Anxiety and Depression
- Motivated by money, or fear of losing job
- Poor psychological state
- Potential heart disease
- Lower productivity
- High rate of absence
- Skyrocketing medical insurance costs
- Loss of experienced workers
- Loss of time and money

Investing in Health
We’ve all only got one body. When it malfunctions, every part of our being is affected. Just think of how less productive you are when you have a headache. Living inside of a body that is out of balance is no way to live.
By introducing back healthy habits, we invest in our most important asset – ourselves.
Every company is a little world of its own. We can start making changes within that ecosystem to produce a far healthier, more productive and more enjoyable work environment. We can do this by investing in the right values, the right priorities and the right people.
Championing the health and well-being of both employees and employers will lead to a win-win situation that assures long-term success.
