8 Tips For Dealing With Stress & Top 10 Most And Least Stressful Jobs

Here are 8 tips from Dr. Kevin Klassen, a cardiologist with Scottsdale Healthcare, and Dr. Anne-Marie Reed, a board certified family physician at Camelback Health Care, for dealing with workplace stress:

1. Do what you can to have a positive outlook about your job, knowing that better alternatives will be hard to find and that almost anything can be better if you make the effort to do so.
2. Help your coworkers. Promoting a sense of camaraderie reduces everyone’s stress and often causes the others to want to help you, also.
3. Walk during breaks and lunch. Exercise before or after work. Physical activity seems to clear your head and dissipate stress.
4. Limit caffeine during the day and alcohol after hours. Both tend to cause dehydration, which can increase stress and anxiety.
5. Eat healthfully and limit calories.
6. Respect the fact that your body needs to rest and make enough time to get a good night’s sleep.
7. Live within your means. Financial stress is one of the worst types of stresses to live with and it impacts not only coworkers but family and friends.
8. Keep a good support system. Family and friends can provide emotional support without any strings attached. Focus on the simpler things in life. Smile and be positive.
