A recent study found that workplace stress is just about as harmful to one's health as secondhand smoke. Since a majority of everyone we've ever talked to in this world complains at length about their jobs, this basically means we're all spending our workdays in a smoky dive bar, endlessly waiting to "circle back" on issues because we don't have enough "bandwidth." Apparently, workplace stress is getting worse because technology allows it to reach us at any hour of the day. And it's leading to increases in heart disease, insomnia, obesity, hypertension, and depression. Which are things that can absolutely kill you slowly (or quickly, one day).
