A day at the end of which you fall weary and try to collect your powers as the next morning to start again. Even if you do not intend to give up this pace of life that is not encouraging at all, have you ever thought that your body can fall?
Modern society gives us many advantages, but also it gives us so many sources of stress, which sooner or later they will show negative effects.
Stressors are very variable. May be of a psychic (professional or family complaints, fatigue, etc..) Socio-cultural or physical (pain, infectious states, etc.).. We will give details of psychological stressors: occupational stress and fatigue.
Occupational stress is the second in the hierarchy of professional health issues in the EU. Studies show that occupational stress affects over 40 million employees from EU countries According to a large number of studies, occupational stress affects about one-third (28%) of employees of the fifteen EU Member States. Women reach higher levels, but for both women and men, stress can be a problem in all sectors and at all levels of an organization. One of the most common cause is lack of control over work. 35% of employees say they have no word to say about their tasks and 55% complain that they have no influence on labor duration. Monotonous work, tight deadlines (29% of staff said that are working in these conditions), inappropriate treatment at work are other factors that cause occupational stress. Stress is a complex emotional reactions, cognitive, behavioral and psychological aspects. Positive stress (healthy) stimulates and causes employees to meet the demands of work, the negative stress (excessive) can not be controlled and can cause adverse health effects. Stress affects the health of the organism causing the emergence of diseases such as: ischemic cardiomyopathy, mental disorders (anxiety, depression, suicide), muscalo disorders, gastrointestinal disorders.
Fatigue and drowsiness are the result of perpetuation wakefulness during periods biologically programmed for sleep, the insomnia extended and systematic reduction of hours of sleep. It is undeniable that such situations lead to lower levels of human performance. Even moderate reduction of sleep duration for short periods of time (about two hours a night over a week) accumulate and manifest itself through an irresistible tendency to fall asleep during inappropriate situations.
