SINGAPORE — Singaporeans are not only sleep deprived, but they are also among the most stressed at work globally, according to a survey by health service company Cigna released on Tuesday (Mar 26). Nearly 92 per cent of Singaporeans surveyed were stressed from work, which was higher than the global average of 84 per cent. Of this group, 13 per cent said that the stress they faced was unmanageable. Singaporeans’ physical wellness index also dipped by 4.4 percentage points from last year, which the survey attributed to an increase in sleepless nights. Of the 23 markets surveyed, Singapore had the fifth lowest wellness index, which was measured across five key indices — family, financial, physical, social and work. Singapore fell by a place from last year as its wellness index went down by 1.7 points to 57.8. The survey collated about 13,200 responses from over 24 countries, with a sample of 502 respondents in Singapore. Read also “Vulnerability will make it seem that you are not as competent.
