Stress at work is an increasingly frequent phenomenon that affects our society. In companies, the most frequent reason for sick leave, apart from musculoskeletal problems, is stress at work, the second leading cause of sick leave in the European Union. A problem suffered by the affected person, and that the teammates and the company itself ends up being collateral damage.

According to the European Foundation for the Improvement of Living and Working Conditions, 28% of European workers appear to be some kind of work-related stress. The consequences of this problem are physical alterations such as disorders of the cardiovascular, gastrointestinal, endocrine, muscular or immune system, among others. Mental disorders such as inability to concentrate, difficulty in paying attention, confusion, depression, mental blockage or susceptibility to accidents or drug use, among many others

Another negative effect of stress at work is that it causes a deterioration of the working environment, influencing the performance, productivity, the employee’s relationship with the team and that it can lead to illness, absenteeism, work-related accidents and, in some cases, inability to perform one’s duties. For these reasons, both for the health of the company and for the quality of life and well-being of the worker, it is essential to offer employees tools for managing stress and emotions.

To prevent members of a company from suffering from these conditions, it is necessary to instill a healthy lifestyle as a method of prevention from the workplace. Eating a varied and balanced diet with all the nutrients needed by the body, practicing sports frequently, practicing Mindfulness and exercises in mental and muscular relationships, are some of the many techniques that can be used to achieve this. For this reason, WellWolas includes them all in the workplace health and wellness platform, addressing the four pillars necessary for optimal health: The pillar of nutritional, physical, emotional and environmental health.
