15 Super Ways to Handle Stress at Workplace+ Yoga Some jobs have such high demands on your personal time that they practically become a way of life.

This kind of high level customer service and constant interaction can take a toll on emloyees’ wellbeing and drain them as well over an eight hour shift. Mixing this exhaustion with other job responsibilities creates a perfect storm for stress. So, how does one cope?

They call for excellent problem-solving and time management skills, as well as being sensitive to people’s needs. How does someone working in the health care industry eliminate stress without sacrificing the quality of their work? Well, the solution is not as hard as you may think or want it to be.

Feel the sand on your feet and legs. Sounds wonderful eh! Relax… Pray Research has shown that people who pray have positive correlation with the Almighty and they do handle stress better.
