10 Ideas to help you lower your stress level at work

Stress & Work

Like most people today, you are stressed out! You find that you don’t have a second to catch your breath, enjoy your breakfast or take a walk outside without constantly being interrupted. We live in a 24/7 world of communication and we are being trained in some pretty bad behavior (e.g. like checking our phones in the car.).

Constant communication can not only impact us as individuals, it can impact how we work in teams as well. Not giving proper attention to a fellow teammates work can lead to stress at the team level. Constant multi-tasking can lower productivity and impact your teams’ ability to deliver value.
