Stress management in the workplace is a necessary part of career development. There are people who will drive you crazy if you let them and there are assignments that you will find are unrealistic. But if you maintain a perspective that work is one part of your life and there are other personal aspects with family and friends that are more important you will be more likely to not allow work to become all encompassing. There will always be trade-offs in life but a stress-free career can be created when the professional part of your life assists you in reaching your dreams and goals, but does not become the center of your universe.
