De- stress!!!! Hi friends, Getting de-stressed is the talk of the day. How do you do it? We all get stressed at one point or the other. Sometimes we get stressed at home and sometimes at work. Many a time we get stressed out trying to manage both. The level may change from person to person and time to time, but stress has always existed as a part of most of our lives. Stress at work place can take toll on the quality of work produced by us. Years of research has concluded that stress of a worker at work, is a management issue and has to be dealt effectively by the management. The management has to ensure that minimum stress is caused to the workers by looking into various factors (within the management's reach) that affect the morale and mind-sets of the workers. This is a duty of the management. On a personal level too, we have to strive hard not to get sressed up. The stress at home or work directly affects our functioning in the other ward. It is said personal and professional life have to be clearly partitioned. As everything else in the world is, this is also easier said than done.
