One in two Australians are experiencing a level of stress that could be making them sick, according to a new poll conducted as part of Lifeline’s Stress Down day (July 22nd).
In its fourth year, the Lifeline Stress Poll has found that our stress levels continue to rise each year, with an alarming amount of us experiencing high levels of stress at work and at home.
93% of Australians are stressed this year, up from 90% in 2010, and 48% of us are experiencing high levels of stress, up from 43% this time last year.
Australians work very long hours and so it is no surprise to Lifeline that work is the number one stressor for the country, this was followed by thoughts of the future, finances, health and personal relationships.
