Everyone experiences stress at some point. It’s the body’s natural way of stimulating our brains into acting quickly to protect us from danger. Along with it, anxiety disorders are the most common mental illness in the United States, affecting 40 million adults aged 18 and over, according to the Anxiety and Depression Association of America. Stress can lead to many other health problems such as insomnia, depression and heart disease.
But what if we could harness those negative feelings of stress into fuel for our productivity? What if they could actually aid us in getting work done more efficiently, seeing it as a weapon rather than a burden? It could end up positively and dramatically changing the way we work and how productive we are on the job.
