hree in four Australians say that workplace stress is affecting their lives. The ‘simple life’ is a thing of the past. We have more choices, more resources, more information, more connections, and more opportunities. So why are we so dissatisfied? With all of this, the complexity of our lives has increased exponentially and it is no longer very clear which options to take. In fact, for much of our working lives, we do not even believe we have any option but to do it all, and do it all now! In 2012, the Australian Psychological Society found that Australians are reporting higher levels of stress and lower levels of well-being than in the previous year. Recent figures show that stress-related absence at work is costing Australian employers about $30 billion per year. And while we know that work-related stress and being over-whelmed impairs our ability to function in all dimensions of life, we can’t give it up – work is like a drug.
