Do you ever find yourself constantly having run-ins with an irksome co-worker? Perhaps the bloke across the room from you is always talking too loud on the phone, or the lady behind you also clicks her pen and pops gum. It's so tempting to just scream at them or plug in headphones and drift away from it all, but outright animosity or ignorance is rarely the solution in a workplace environment.
Multiple studies have found that interpersonal workplace relationships play a huge role in overall stress levels.
