Even 70% of non-working individuals are also suffering from stress.
Stress. Stressing. Stressed. This seems to be the moods of most corporate people in India. A survey report by ManipalCigna showed that close to 82% Indians are suffering from stress on account of work, health, and finance-related concerns.

The survey reveals that stress continues to be a significant concern in India. About 89% of the sandwich generation (age group 35-49 years) is suffering from stress, followed by 87% of millennials, and 64% of those age above 50+. Given that the sandwich generation comprise the core workforce and are poised to be senior management in the coming years, there will be a huge impact on businesses if not addressed immediately.

Even non-working are suffering from stress
The survey further shows 84% of working individuals are stressed on account of too much work at offices, followed by family health concerns, personal health, and family and personal finance. Nevertheless, even 70% of non-working individuals are also suffering from stress.

On gender basis, the survey shows 84% of men are stressed, at the same time 79% of women also suffer from stress in India. The leading causes of stress for single, married, and working mothers vary, but all mention personal finance, too much work, and personal health as the source of their stress.

In office, 84% of working individuals are stressed, and 74% notice that their colleagues are also stressed. Some of the symptoms expressed by colleagues suffering from stress are poor performance at work, complains of headache and tiredness. Stress at workplace may lead to lower morale and possible resignation which is a worrisome scenario for corporate India.
