Coping With Stress

Stress is often considered part and parcel of belonging to the medical profession. High levels of responsibility, combined with heavy workloads and long hours all contribute to stress, anxiety, depression and burnout.

Physical effects of stress can include headaches, muscle pain, fatigue, GI upset, insomnia and increased infections. Stress also increases your risk of hypertension, cardiovascular disease and other chronic diseases.
