Don't Be Stressed!

Feeling stressed, especially with busy season approaching? According to Bloomberg News columnist, Matthew Lynn, there are three reasons why we are all so stressed at work:

1. Hyperactivity – in the modern office, rushing around like a hamster on steroids is a badge of honor.

2. Round-the-clock business culture - consumers can get what they want whenever they want it…good for them…but not so great for the producers.

3. Politeness and consideration – we’ve forgotten how to treat coworkers, suppliers and customers.

Believing work is stressful because we make it that way, he suggests it’s might be time to relax a bit…or at least not shout at each other!
