Job Stress at Home

To one degree or another, we all have to deal with job related stress. Even those who serve in their areas of passion and vocation have to deal with job stress. One of the biggest challenges is keeping it from interfering with our home life. We live in a world of paradox. One one hand we have technology at our fingertips promising an easier life. On the other hand we have information overload, we are lonelier than ever, and most are stressed beyond their ability to cope. According to recent studies, job related pressure is American’s number one complaint. Nearly 125 million working adults report physical ailments directly related to job pressure. The American Medical Association suggests nearly 90% of doctor visits are stress induced issues.

A Breaking Point

When you have reached the point of declaring, “I just don’t care anymore.” “I’m done and I just don’t care anymore.” When you are resentful of your job and those you work with. When you start to break down physically and emotionally, you have reached a breaking point. If something does not change you are going to be in big trouble on a variety of life fronts. You do not have to wait until the situation reaches this point to make significant and lasting changes to live and work, relatively, stress free.
