Stress at work is no joke; and there’s virtually no way to escape it either. We’re worried about so many things at the office, from our day-to-day routine and deadlines to the future of work in general: income, stability of the workplace to name just two things. And all of that stress is taking its toll, in myriad ways: mental health complaints, physical ailments, even just more sick days.

And when the stress starts at home, that compounds the problem even more. That’s why it’s important to take just a few minutes and try to identify the sources of that stress – and stop them in their tracks.

Take morning prep: The worst thing is to get ready for work and find out there’s nothing for breakfast; then skip breakfast, which creates stress. Spend time the night before thinking about your first meal (and packing some healthy snacks, too).

Want more ideas to cut down on stress at home; so you can cut down on stress at work? This graphic can help.
