Accountemps recently surveyed over 3,000 American workers, from CEOs to entry level employees, and found that job stress is causing a lot of sleepless nights.

Their survey showed that 52% of people say they are overwhelmed by work on a daily basis, and 6 out of 10 say their stress level has increased over the last 5 years.

Here are the top 3 reasons why workers can't sleep:

50% say the sheer volume of work they have to do keeps them up at night.

48% say they can't get a business problem out of their heads.

20% say they toss and turn worrying about strained relationships with co-workers.

The survey also indicated that men are slightly more likely to lose sleep over job-related issues than women, and that 18- to 34-year-olds are more stressed out about work than their older peers.

The good news is that DC workers are actually not the most stressed out in the country - not even close.

Only 34% of DC metro area workers surveyed say they are stressed out, compared with a nation-wide average of 44%.

Miami, Nashville, and New York have the most stressed out employees, while Minneapolis, Clevelend, and DC are in the bottom 3 for job-related stress.
