Summer Is the Most Stressful Time for Most Employees

by Molly Fosco

Summer is a time for rest, relaxation and stress-free vacations, right? As it turns out, the next three months might not be as carefree as you think. According to new data from meQuilibrium, the shift from spring to summer actually causes an increase in stress levels for most employees.

An analysis of 30,000 working men and women found that during the summer months, things like eating habits, sleep, time management and sense of pressure actually saw a downward shift. Study participants were given a stress test ahead of the analysis that measured these stress vulnerability factors.
