Whether we work for others or run our own businesses, we spend a lot of time working.
Add time for commuting to and from work; preparing for work; responding to work-related
calls, emails, and text messages on our free time; and work-related travel, then
the number of hours devoted to work each week becomes even larger.
Moreover, workplace issues – like rude customers, difficult co-workers or employees,
unreasonable bosses or business partners, cumbersome procedures, boring tasks, and
constant interruptions – can make our work lives miserable. This misery will negatively
affect other areas of our lives as well as disrupt our emotional and physical well-being.
Therefore, it is well worth the effort to develop healthy coping skills and sound
practices for managing workplace stressors.
