Reduce Job Stress for a Happier, Healthier Life

More than half of working adults point to work as the primary source of stress. A larger problem arises when negative energy infects our co-workers. Since many of us find it hard to unplug after work, stress inevitably spills over into our personal lives.

Can workplace stress kill us? Stanford professor of organizational behavior, Jeffrey Pfeffer and his colleagues, Stefanos A. Zenios of Stanford GSB and Joel Goh of Harvard Business School, say stress contributes to at least 120,000 deaths, and accounts for up to $190 billion in health care costs each year.

The good news: We’re seeing organizations give increasingly thoughtful planning to create successful workplace wellness programs. Even better: The power to reduce job stress can start today with a few simple tweaks to your daily routine.

If you have an overwhelming amount of stress at work, consider some of these tactics to help yourself and your colleagues reduce job stress today.
