New research shows that on-the-job stress really can kill you by increasing your risk for heart disease – especially if you're younger than 50. Here's how to lower the pressure.

Take action:
Get to know yourself, whether this involves a little introspection, or a few sessions with a psychologist – you have control over how manage your stress; don't torment yourself with regrets about the past and stop worrying about things that might happen in the future; be more tolerant and adaptable; hold on to your sense of humour; communicate better with your boss and colleagues (especially if you feel over-worked); prioritise your work; and learn to say no.
