Stress less: There a # of ways to address stress. Talk about your feelings & address problems rather than avoiding them. Aim to get 7.5 to 8 hours of quality sleep per night. Daily physical activity is optimal, especially in a green space. Eat healthfully. Cut out junk carbs, caffeine & alcohol or at least keep use moderate.

Depends: If working harder means finding better ways to reduce the stress then yes. If working harder means simply doing the same unhelpful thing over and over but with more vigor then no. Exercise, good nutrition, having meaningful relationships, cultivating your strengths are all ways to deal with stress.
