Do You Bring Work Stress Home?

Your Two Cents: Do You Bring Work Stress Home?

The demands of the daily grind breed stress. It's a fact of adult life. We race to get to work on time and fight to get ahead or make a mark. Balancing the tensions that come with a job isn't easy for anyone and requires tactical effort and constant attention. Some people can shut off that stress when they walk out the office door, while others carry it with them through the commute and back to their personal lives. Are you able to successfully shut work stress down, or does it creep into home life?

I am an ambulance dispatcher. I take medical calls from 911 callers, help hospice nurses set up transfers for their dying patients, and make decisions that could change the course of strangers' lives. Most days, I can leave those calls at work. I go outside, ride my bike home, think of what's good in my life, and am ready to be Jen or Mom by the time I get home. But there are days that I hear people die, right over the phone. There are stories that reduce me to tears. And when a kid is hurt, the first thing I do when I get home is wrap my own kid up in a great big bear hug and tell her how much I love her.

I'm fortunate...I usually leave all my work issues at work. I have a 25 minute commute each way, so I use that time to decompress and unwind from the day.
