The grind: A survey conducted by the American Society of Chartered Life Underwriters & Chartered Financial Consultants and the Ethics Officer Association found that 57 percent of more than 1,600 U.S. workers polled report lost sleep or insomnia due to workplace pressure. Forty-eight percent of the respondents said they had headaches, while 37 percent reported workplace pressure made them depressed. Thirty-five percent said the pressure had made them gain or lose weight.
