Take care of yourself and your employees by receiving a short massage while at work!
As a business owner, you undoubtedly would like your business to perform well and that means, in the words of Richard Branson, taking care of your employees (and yourself!).
Workplace and mental stress costs Australian businesses more than $10 billion per year in absenteeism and reduced work productivity according to data from compensation claims made in 2008-09 and 2010-11 (Safe Work Australia).
Work-related and mental stress accounts for the longest stretches of absenteeism (National Health and Safety Commission).
The signs or symptoms of stress can be physical, psychological and behavioural and include:
|Physical symptoms||Psychological symptoms||Behavioural symptoms|
|Fatigue||Depression||Increase in sick days or absenteeism|
|Muscular tension||Anxiety||Diminished creativity or initiative|
|Headaches||Discouragement||Decreased work performance|
|Sleeping difficulties, insomnia||Irritability and aggression||Problems with interpersonal relationships|
|Pessimism||Mood swings and irritability|
|Feeling overwhelmed and unable to cope||Frustration and impatience|
|Reduced ability to concentrate or make decisions||Disinterest and isolation|
A list like this could have a devastating impact and effect on your business.
