"If you have high demands but also high control, in other words, you can make decisions, this may even be positive for health. But being entrapped in a pressured situation that you have no power to change is harmful," said Ladwig. Impaired sleep was defined as difficulties falling asleep and/or maintaining sleep. "Maintaining sleep is the most common problem in people with stressful jobs. They wake up at 4 o'clock in the morning to go to the toilet and come back to bed ruminating about how to deal with work issues," said Ladwig. "These are insidious problems. The risk is not having one tough day and no sleep. It is suffering from a stressful job and poor sleep over many years, which fade energy resources and may lead to an early grave," noted Ladwig.

The findings are a red flag for doctors to ask patients with high blood pressure about sleep and job strain, said Professor Ladwig. "Each condition is a risk factor on its own and there is cross-talk among them, meaning each one increases risk of the other. Physical activity, eating healthily and relaxation strategies are important, as well as blood pressure lowering medication if appropriate." Employers should provide stress management and sleep treatment in the workplace, he added, especially for staff with chronic conditions like hypertension.
