Is there room for humour at the office? Can office humor help relieve stress in the workplace? I think so! I work in an office where laughter is the best medicine.

But I think there needs to be a balance and we need to know when to inject some humour and when to NOT.
But job stress is no laughing matter. Here is a link to a discussion on the Healthline website on the subject of Job Stress: How to Keep Your Cool, an Interview with Dr. F. Massino and Dr. W.
