Do you feel that work is a consistent trigger of stress? You are not alone. In this US News & World Report article, Dr. Alison Ross is interviewed about the effects of modern-day work expectations and routine.
I think people entering the workforce today and those already in it feel much less secure about the jobs they have,” Ross says. “There is no longer the expectation of longevity or loyalty from the higher-ups, even if one is good at their job. With frequent downsizings, mergers and acquisitions, people feel a chronic sense of unsettledness, anxiety and worry about their job.
The flexibility often afforded by modern-day working may also contribute to feelings of stress or loneliness. Working at home may be incredibly convenient, but it leaves almost no room for social connections.
The drawback for some people is the feelings of isolation and loneliness these work situations may cause because the person is working alone, separate and apart from other co-workers,” Ross says.
