Have you achieved the ever elusive “work-life balance”? As a nation, we seem to be experiencing more and more stress and many cite stress as the main cause of mental and physical health problems. According to the International Labour Organization and the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the U.S. remains the only industrialized nation without mandated annual leave. Americans work more and take less vacation time all while increasing in productivity a whopping 400% since 1950. What role does our current economic climate play? Is our stress simply work related, or does the increased access to information and technology also play a role? How big a problem is stress for us as individuals and for our society? Is medicine the answer or are social and behavioral changes needed? How can we combat the negative impacts and ultimately reduce the stress in our lives? Bring your own questions and join us as we strive to find the right balance!
