        All employees are bombarded with the routine of addressing work-related problems. Sometimes they lost the drive to give their best because it is like a lifelong punishment that they can never be escaped.

        But the challenge of keeping employees motivated should not be a challenge for the human resource department. The employees themselves should take the initiative to take the necessary actions to remain inspired to do their tasks.

        Stress is everywhere. It can be at home, at the parking, at the streets, at the malls but maybe the most stressful environment for many if not for all is the workplace itself.

        The working population is prone to stress commonly due to time pressure, deadlines, fear of failure, individual differences, limited resources and many other factors.

         Stress management is vital in every work place.

         Is it possible to eradicate stress in the work place? Is it possible to work in a stress-free environment? The answer is you cannot eliminate stress in the work place but you can certainly manage it.

        So the question remains, how can you manage stress especially in a demanding work place? The best way to counter stress is to get some leisure time. You can allot some time to get some rest. Take a break. Go to a vacation. You should take advantage of weekends especially long weekends to enjoy with your loved ones.

        Relaxation is energizing. It brings back productivity. Going on a vacation can rekindle your motivation and drive to be a better employee. So basically, it puts your life in perspective. It also gives a better appreciation of your work. Taking a vacation should be encouraged especially in high pressure jobs. This scheme will surely beget great results not just for the employee but also for the company.

        We should always remember that we only live once. That is why it is never wrong to take a break and take of ourselves once in a while.

        One solution to work stress is vacation that we can enjoy from time to time.
