Studies show that stress levels have been increasing in recent years. Trends pertaining to job satisfaction and job engagement suggest that at least half of American workers are unengaged and dissatisfied with work. Furthermore, over the past decade, antidepressant use has increased by 400%. Studies have also shown that external circumstances appear to have the smallest impact on our overall happiness.

Most of us spend most of our waking hours at work, and often find ourselves taking that work home, literally or figurately by thinking about work when we aren't on the clock. All of these facts point to the need for a practical approach to improving wellness at the organizational level. The truth is there are specific skills in the area of behavior modification and positive psychology that have a greatest impact on life satisfaction and physical health.
