Work Is More Stressful At This Time Of Year

Chatting with folks around the office, I found out this is the happiest time of year at work, but it also brings us the most anxiety. Here's why:

1. It's tricky trying to balance holiday events and your job.

2. When you take time off for a holiday vacation, you either have to prepare so much in advance and work overtime or catch-up so much when you come back and work overtime.

3. When other co-workers take time off, you have to pick up the slack for others.

4. Attending company events fills your calendar and leaves you with little time to decompress.
