San Francisco, California, United States — No matter how much you love your job, there are going to be times when you find yourself a little stressed out. Perhaps a big work project is due, or you’re scheduled to give a presentation, or you simply have too much to do and not enough time to get it done.
In fact, job pressure — defined as work overload, co-worker tension, or a bad boss — is the number one source of stress in our lives, according to a 2014 report by the American Psychological Association.
Heidi Hanna knows about all that. As executive director of the American Institute of Stress and the author of Stressaholic (Wiley, 2013), Hanna has spent her career studying the different types of stress and how we react to them. And she has some advice not just for how to cope with workplace stress, but how to increase your capacity to handle that stress.
