America’s relationship with work is unhealthy and unsustainable.
We work long hours and report some of the highest levels of job stress in the world.
We spend more on #healthcare than any other nation, but our employees are sicker than those in other high-income nations.
Work is taking a toll on our #MetabolicHealth.

And not only is this bad for our longevity — it's bad for business too.

Poor health is associated with more than $575 billion in lost potential, and 1.5 billion days of missed productivity for US businesses.
Science shows a clear link between job stress and #MetabolicSyndrome, which may include:

1️⃣ Increased weight gain
2️⃣ High blood sugar
3️⃣ Hypertension
4️⃣ Heightened cholesterol
5️⃣ Abnormal triglycerides

"More than 3.3 million people have lost their lives to #COVID19 this year – more deaths than from HIV, malaria and tuberculosis combined in 2020.
And still, COVID-19 continues to claim around 50,000 lives every week."-@DrTedros
"That’s not to mention the unreported deaths, and the millions of excess deaths caused by disruptions to essential health services."-@DrTedros

If #HealthCare positions itself as public priority number one during a #pandemic, then it goes without saying #nurses in fact perform a critical and central role in delivering said #health care. #NursesWeek2021 #NursesWeek #NursesDay #NursesMonth #Nursing #NurseTwitter #Nurse
