According to a recent survey, South African professionals are stressed out. How do you manage work stress?

According to the 2017 Profmed Stress Index, work stress remains a large problem for South African professionals.

The Index, which is compiled from responses of nearly 3 000 of Profmed’s professional members, reveals that 45,5% of respondents saw work as the biggest contributor to stress in their lives.

Of the respondents, 10,09% indicated that they have taken time off from work due to stress-related illnesses over the past six months.

Graham Anderson, CEO of Profmed, says that an area of concern is the increase in the number of professionals who feel they are not managing stress effectively. In 2017, the number reached 29,15%, an increase from the previous year’s 28,3%.
