(KSL News) Several Utah companies were honored today for their efforts in making their workplace a more relaxing place.

Utah's Psychologically Healthy Workplace Awards were given out today to six companies that have implemented creative ways to reduce stress in the work place.

Liz Hale, an American Psychological Association panelist, says, "They emphasize humor, you know how do you see the funny in the terrible things that happen. Even having massages or any kind of mental health day just to kind of take a break."
