Stress in the workplace is on the decline, according to a recent study from health portal provider MediKeeper, Inc. The majority of respondents said, on a scale of one to five, that their stress level was at a two in 2016. This is down from 2014, where the majority said they were at a level three. Similarly, the number of people who reported a level one increased by 58 percent over the same two-year period.
Curb your stress with these helpful tips:
- Make to-do lists of tasks that need completing and cross off items as you finish them.

- If you continually run late, set your clocks and watch ahead to give yourself extra time.
