Are you anxious about your job search? Are you stressed every day in your job? In either case, stress can lead to debilitating symptoms, such as loss of sleep, irritability, fatigue, headaches, stomach aches, overeating, drinking too much, loss of interest in sex, poor productivity, and relationships in a downward spiral. Not surprising then that according to a study by the British Medical Journal, chronic job stress is linked to both heart disease and type 2 diabetes.
Whether you have experienced the loss of a job, or are now doing more in your job as a result of job positions which have gone unfilled, a root cause of your stress may be a sense of powerlessness, as reported by Drs. Miller and Smith in their article Stress: Stress in the Workplace for the American Psychological Association.
