Try not to bring work home with you. Don’t check your work email or voice mail after hours.

Judging from a lot of the reader comments Don Tennant gets on some of his blog posts, there’s a lot of stress out there. Fortunately, the Anxiety Disorders Association of America wants to help.

A survey that ADAA conducted back in 2006 showed that even then, workplace stress was a problem. Among the findings:

  • 72 percent of people who have daily stress and anxiety say it interferes with their lives at least moderately.
  • 40 percent experience persistent stress or excessive anxiety in their daily lives.
  • 30 percent with daily stress have taken prescription medication to manage stress, nervousness, emotional problems or lack of sleep.
  • 28 percent have had an anxiety or panic attack.

If things were that bad before the recession, imagine what they’re like now. So ADAA has identified some helpful tips for managing stress at work.
