Stress in the Workplace, It’s Real and It Matters: A Doc’s Advice


It will come as no surprise to hear that US workers are stressed out. In fact, just last year, the human resources company Paychex released a survey of over 2000 full-time employees who were asked to rate their stress levels on a scale of 1 to 5.
