North Americans are overworked, overwhelmed and overstressed.

The 9 to 5 lifestyle is slowly fading into oblivion. With the blurred lines of office hours at work, options like telecommuting and flexible work hours, doesn’t necessarily equate to shorter work days. Most American’s work days stretch from about 9 a.m. until whenever they get their work completed (which is well after 5 p.m.). People are hardly taking vacations anymore and quite often are making work decisions out of fear. Even millennials are worked to the point where the thought of starting families, or taking decent time off to rest their bodies and minds is ludicrous.” –Tracey Edouard,
