Office Stress May Lead to Health Issues

Finally stress is found in about every office even in the halls of congress.

A new study says stress management programs in the workplace could improve the health of employees.

Researchers followed 91 employees of an Italian company who were facing layoffs.

They were experiencing work-related stress with physical symptoms such as fatigue, increased heart rate and stomach problems.

Those workers took part in a weekly stress management session during their lunch break for a year.

Researchers found a small but significant improvement in the employees' heart rhythms, blood pressure and level of fatigue.
