Stress at Work
This YouTube video is based on stress at work. It exemplifies some of the physiological and behavioral symptoms of stress. In the video the man shows anxiety when he is told he must complete hundreds of tasks within a certain time period and must also attend a meeting. He feels he cannot handle all the work that is laid out for him and so the symptoms appear. Because of this the man is irritable. He fills some time from the meeting by consuming alcohol and nicotine. In the end his feelings of hopelessness and helplessness lead him to jump out of a window. It is inconclusive if the man dies or just injures himself because of his distress.
