If your workplace stress is due to your co-workers, this tip may help. You may not be able to pick with whom you work, but you can pick how to get along with them in order to reduce stress.

Reflective Questions Relieves Stress

You can learn how to relieve stress with reflective questions. Simply put, reflective questions relieve stress. The reasons are twofold: (1) Just asking redirects your thinking which, in turn, changes your feelings, and (2) you realize that you have options—that you need not feel like a victim.

Reflective questions carry additional attributes aside from relieving stress because they place you in command. That, by itself, reduces tension, anxiety, and stress. Asking yourself reflective questions relieves stress by also defusing frustrating situations and promoting responsible thinking.
