Overwork went straight to Douglas Heddings’ back. The founder of Heddings Property Group in New York City, Heddings has suffered from chronic stress-related back pain for more than a decade. Even as he recuperated from spine surgery, the pace didn’t let up. His inbox filled at the rate of 50 e-mails per hour. The back problem “has a great deal to do with the fact that I feel I have to be on call 24/7,” Heddings says.
