Everyone either experiences or knows someone who experiences stress, anxiety, or depression. It is a constant of everyday life. In fact, in 2013, the National Institutes for Health stated that among adults in the United States:
- 18% had an anxiety disorder
- 9% were diagnosed with a mood disorder
- 20% of US adults experienced high or extreme stress
Stress doesn’t just have a personal impact; it also has an economic impact. Depression costs employers over $44 billion annually in lost productivity, 81% due to poorer on-the-job performance. The cost of depression to employers in lost work days is as great or greater than the cost of many other common medical conditions, including heart disease, diabetes, or back problems.
You probably already track data around your physical health, like steps, heart-rate, sleep, and calories. Why not track your mental state? Tracking your physical health allows you to pinpoint problem areas and rectify them. Tracking your mental health can do the same.
