What causes excessive stress while at work?

I have very long, stressful days at work as an RN discharge planner. I go none stop, at full throttle for 8 hours. I notice that on my first day off I am wiped out and my body feel depleted. Is this a type of effect from prolonged periods of adrenaline rush?

Psychiatrist 's  Response
Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

Yes. Too much stress at work can make you tired. Whatever might be the amount of work, try to take a short break of 2-3mins at least every 20-25mins. You can just go for a short walk, have a glass of water and return back to work. This gives your body a chance to replenish energy stores required by the body.

Feel free to ask further.

Thank you.
