Stress on the job comes from annoying co-workers and low payAccording to CBS it’s National Stress Awareness Month, but if you’re at work, you probably can’t tell the difference between April and the other eleven months of the year.

That’s because a new study shows over three-fourths of the U.S. workforce is stressed out by at least one thing at their job, with anxiety even reaching the youngest working Americans.

In the 2011 Work Stress Survey conducted by Harris Interactive on behalf of Everest College of nearly 1,000 adults, 77 percent of U.S. workers said their job was stressful in some way, with 14 percent citing low pay as the most stressful aspect, followed by commuting (11 percent), job security (9 percent), and annoying coworkers (8 percent).

Wendy Cullen, VP of employer development at Everest College, tells KFWB 980′s Maggie McKay that money makes all the difference when it comes to what’s worrying employees.

Young people ages 18-34 also say their paltry paychecks and irritating colleagues are the top stress factors, along with poor work-life balance (five percent) and lack of opportunity for advancement (4 percent)

A blissful 21 percent said there was no aspect about their jobs that stress them out, while married people were less stressed than single workers (24 percent compared with 14 percent).

Stress on the job can be the source of a great deal of unhappiness.  When patients are unhappy with their look , it affects everything around them including their work. Changing what bothers you most ,can be a great decision. Dr. O’Toole discusses with his patients the benefits of choosing plastic surgery. Patients who are considering popular procedures such as breast augmentation and liposuction are  usually concerned about the time they will miss from work while recovering. There is no need for patients to stress over the recovery time. Most patients can return to a desk type of position within 3 to 5 days.
