More than 40 percent of adults polled say their job negatively affects their stress levels according to a new study conducted by NPR, Harvard and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. Only half of the study’s 1,600 participants say their workplaces offer wellness and health-improvement programs and among workers who work more than 50 hours a week, more than half do some work while on vacation. In this hour, we discuss the poll’s findings and what can be done to reduce workplace stress. Tell us: How have you made your job work for your health?
