How to Cope with Stress at Home

How to Cope with Stress at Home Our jobs are stressful. With endless amounts of paper work, harrowing deadlines, overbearing bosses and coworker spats, the daily grind can be pretty stressful. Without a doubt, work is one of the number one causes of stress. But what about when you head home? Home is our escape, our sanctuary. But, home life can be just as stressful as work. Job losses, economic difficulties, and conflicts with spouses or children can make a home incredibly tense.
