People 'should talk about stress at work'

Speaking openly and getting enough sleep are effective ways employees can go about tackling the issue of stress at work.

That is according to Sue Firth, a chartered psychologist, who believes discussing problems with a loved one, a colleague or their boss can be a great help for people struggling with mental anxiety caused by their profession.

Ms Firth explained this will stop individuals from spending too much time every day worrying about the fact they are stressed, as well as providing them with some helpful "tips and techniques" to manage the issue properly.

Furthermore, the expert indicated that resting for sufficient periods is also essential, as tiredness will only "make the situation worse".

In a recent report produced to mark the Queen's Diamond Jubilee year, the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development revealed that UK workers are now both more productive and stressed than they were 60 years ago.
