The HSE (Health and Security Govt) defines anxiety as “the adverse response people have to excessive tension or other forms of demand from customers put on them.” The HSE has commissioned analysis into anxiety ranges in the place of work all more than the United kingdom and have occur up with the following jaw-dropping stats: –
