One of the great things about the method is that I didn't even have to divulge what was bothering me. I kept the issue private and internal. The stress dissolved in two rounds of tapping. Although the techniques are non-logical, they work. Also, my son procrastinates doing his homework every day. He laughed at me when I went through my daily tapping routine (as it can look a little funny). I had him try it, using 'doing his homework' as his issue. Unbelievably, he did a few rounds and then did his homework without an argument.
A simple way for overstressed employees to deal with stress is just not to show up at work. Absenteeism increases as a coping mechanism. People max out their sick days. This, plus lost productivity make absenteeism a costly consequence of stress overload.
