Three out of every four Americans define their work as stressful. Data suggests occupational stress is becoming a “global pandemic”, especially during the economic crisis.

As personal stress is a factor in everyone’s life, it is becoming increasingly difficult for even the most professional of employees not to have personal stress effect their personal life.

According to a 2008 Survey from the American Psychological Association, 48.92 percent of Americans report that their stress level has increased between 2007 and 2008, when the economic crisis hit.

29.4 percent of Americans claim that their stress levels are “extreme”.

51.03  percent of Americans responded that  they are increasingly stressed about their ability to provide for their family’s basic needs.
