24% Indians Are Stressed Due To Current Work Environment: Report
The current work environment has become stressful with long working hours, lack of job security, low wages, and growing competition
Indians are stressed due to the ongoing layoffs from various corporations today. According to the GOQii India Fit Report 22-23's Stress and Mental Health Study India indicates that a staggering 24 per cent of Indians are struggling with stress.
The survey, which is titled Game-changing Health and Wellbeing Revolution was conducted to understand how Indians are coping post-covid and what are the stress levels. 26 per cent of Indians are stressed due to their current work situation and 17 per cent due to financial instability. 14 per cent are stressed due to relationship troubles. The current work environment has become stressful with long working hours, lack of job security, low wages, and growing competition.
Since last year, job losses, pay cuts and mental health issues have become more common. With the economy in a state of flux, many people are worried about their future prospects. People are unable to deal with or find ways to tackle the situation. This has led to a lot of anxiety and stress. The survey also indicates that the percentage of women stressing has increased from 25 per cent in 2021. One of the reasons attributed to women is pressure to balance family, work and health issues.
Vishal Gondal, Founder and CEO, GOQii said, “Our study indicates that the current economic and financial instability is creating unprecedented stress among people who are struggling to stay afloat in a rapidly changing world. The mounting uncertainty is the basis of the high stress levels which can be controlled with a balanced diet, changes in lifestyle and appropriate sleep patterns. Stress and mental health has a huge impact on physical health and overall quality of life, hence addressing it sooner with a healthy and wholesome lifestyle is the only way ahead.”
The India Fit report is based on a holistic health survey of 6 million users to understand and delve deeper into how Indian’s are maintaining heart health and managing other parameters such as lifestyle diseases, BMI, nutrition, water, stress, sleep etc.
