All About Men: Easy Way to Relieve Work Stress

Are you a man with a never-satisfied boss, cranky clients, and a mile-long to-do list? It’s time to make friends at work.

Constant job strain is a major blood pressure booster in men (less so in women, for some reason). But having a few hang-in-there friends helps offset the effect of work stress. Time for a group hug (or at least lunch with your office favorites).

In a study of white-collar workers, work stress had a major impact on men's health, including blood pressure. Nevertheless, the effect of job stress on blood pressure was negligible when there were commiserating coworkers around.

Tame the Tension
Just like the daily grind of the office can wear down men's health, the constant force of high blood pressure against the walls of the arteries can wear out their elasticity. The more pressure, the faster the elastic goes. Not what you want, because flexible arteries are less vulnerable to nicks, tears, and other signs of wear that come with aging.

Beat Work Stress on the Cheap
Just breathe right. Here's how.
