Study Finds Promotions Cause Stress

Have You Ever Regretted Taking a Promotion?

You know that promotion you’ve been gunning for? Turns out that go-getter attitude could be detrimental to your health. According to a recent study from the University of Warwick, a leading university in the UK, promotions give people an average of 10 percent more stress. And since with higher positions come more responsibility and an increased workload, people who've climbed the ladder also have 20 percent less time to visit the doctor.

Promotions are generally considered something to strive for, not something to avoid — but I'm sure at least some of you have been promoted into a position that wasn't all it was cracked up to be. So tell me, have you ever regretted taking a promotion?
