Are you having a stressful day? Feel pressure to perform at work and worry about on-the-job demands? Has technology improved your life and at the same time, contributed to increased expectations that you be constantly available to work? Do you answer emails and return phone messages before and after work?
If you're overwhelmed with work stress, you are not alone. In a nationwide poll by the American Psychological Association, more than two-thirds of Americans listed work as a significant source of stress. A down economy has left many people with increased work demands and fewer resources to meet those demands. Even as the economy improves, the pressures at work don't necessarily decrease.
