As cardiologist Dr. Cesar Yepes recently reflected, stress management remains an integral component of any professional’s life. The adverse health effects of poor stress management can manifest in a variety of negative ways for a person’s health. In some cases, these stress-related health problems can become increasingly serious.
According to Dr. Yepes, “Stress management is very important because, sooner or later, the mental energy generated by stress can produce different somatic syndromes, including potential angina in patients with underlying coronary artery disease.”
Beyond adverse health issues, stress can also manifest within office productivity itself. In many cases, poorly managed stress will directly – and negatively – impact a professional’s work performance.
“Lack of concentration in a stressful situation or environment can affect productivity not only at work but also in other aspects of the individual social environment and family relationships,” Dr. Yepes continued.
