Can finding a new job cut stress out of your life?

ANSWER

This is a big change, and yes, it’s easier said than done. But the workplace is the biggest source of stress for Americans. If your job is causing you mental and physical harm, you should take the leap and find a new one if the problems at work simply can't be fixed.
