Judging from a lot of the reader comments Don Tennant gets on some of his blog posts, there’s a lot of stress out there. Fortunately, the Anxiety Disorders Association of America wants to help.

A survey that ADAA conducted back in 2006 showed that even then, workplace stress was a problem. Among the findings:

  • 72 percent of people who have daily stress and anxiety say it interferes with their lives at least moderately.
  • 40 percent experience persistent stress or excessive anxiety in their daily lives.
  • 30 percent with daily stress have taken prescription medication to manage stress, nervousness, emotional problems or lack of sleep.
  • 28 percent have had an anxiety or panic attack.
