If you are like me, then there are places you would rather be for eight hours a day than in the workplace. Just having to be there creates workplace stress for me. I think the way you choose to look at a situation is what determines how much stress you feel.
Yes, my boss gets on my nerves and I would rather sleep in and then go hang out with my friends, but that is not my reality, so I accept this. The way I see it, I am fortunate to have a job that allows me to pay my bills and do some of the fun things I enjoy.
I deal with workplace stress by imagining how much stress I would have if I didn't have a workplace to go to for eight hours a day, five days a week.
