Just the mention of the word stress gets people’s attention pretty quickly. That’s because stress affects everyone – it is universal. Stress cuts across every economic, social and cultural boundary, so learning to understand it and manage it is important for everyone. If stress is not managed properly, it can have serious negative health consequences – both physically and mentally. In the workplace, if employee stress is not managed properly, it’s not only individual health that is jeopardized, but that of others around them, including students and colleagues.
