Sure, there are many ways to relieve from job stress but I believe putting balance into your life is the best way. Being a workaholic is obviously not very well balanced and rewarding. In able to achieve this, you need to build non-work time into your life. Take time off during the weekend at least by not checking your work emails unless it’s very important. I did it this weekend and I felt better.

Gathering with officemates on weekends is also a good stress reliever but try not to talk about anything about work. We did this last night, played with my little girl and heard her antics. Believe me, laughing out loud was all we did!
