We all know that stress can contribute to a variety of health issues. Now, a Canadian study shows us that workplace stress can put some at risk for diabetes.
Personally, I have always felt that work-related stress played a big role in my health. This is because I literally became physically ill when I had managers who were constantly critical and who never gave me any positive feedback.
Now, this study shows that while a certain amount of stress can be positive, excessive workplace stress is a big factor in whether you get diabetes — especially if you're a woman. The researchers followed more than 7,000 people and found that low levels of job control were associated with an increased risk of diabetes. The research also shows that bosses who are very involved with the employee and do not allow them to work independently create additional stress.
You know your value and the important of your health; if your employer doesn't recognize it, it may be time to look elsewhere for the sake of your health!
