Do not let the Monday Blues turn into a Monday heart attack. Dr. Richard Lee with SSM Health of St. Louis University explains ways to reduce stress in the workplace that could relieve your heart of stress as well.

Over 60 percent of American workers say their jobs are a very significant source of stress and it is leading to an increase in heart disease, insomnia, obesity, hypertension, depression and decreasing your life expectancy.
