Anxiety, depression, low libido, avoiding people, panic attacks are on the rise. The AIS or American Institue of Stress shows the main causes of stress in this pie chart. Workload is almost 50% of the total, however, add juggling work and personal, lack of job security sections and work related stress constitutes about a whopping 72% of the causes of stress.
