With increased hours of work and pressure experienced as a result of work, anxiety and stress is on the rise. Taking a proactive approach and understanding the physical impact that mental stress can have on you is important to your overall health. It's about making good choices, creating a better work-life balance for yourself and recognising your true importance in the scheme of things.
