Stress on the Job

Stress on the Job: Perhaps it’s due to a boss who seems to be making unreasonable demands.  Or it’s the result of a co-worker who seems to routinely pass her work onto you.  Or maybe you’re in a profession where tension is great, such as medicine or law.  While a little bit of stress on the job can be healthy, too much can be a killer—literally. 

Surprised by Stress

Sometimes it seems as if life is a series of losses—the loss of a spouse, the loss of a job, the loss of a brother. You may realize that you need to take time to grieve all of these losses. But what you may not realize is that such losses can also lead to stress—a great deal of it. In order to remain emotionally healthy, you must learn to deal effectively with stress induced by traumatic life events.
