Stressed by relaxation?

I have a couple of ongoing problems at work and at home that require a lot of work and attention to detail. This is quite stressful for me and my family. I need to get involved in family recreational activities because otherwise both I and they will get stressed out. Nonetheless, I can't help feeling irritated and angry by these activities, even if I am the one suggesting them, because they feel like a waste of time and energy compared to the problems that need sorting out. How can I change how I feel about these things?

Legally speaking does my safety come first or company policy?

Let’s say my company has a list of 20 rules the first being, you must notify your superior of any problems. And the second stating employees must take precaution to avoid accident or injury. The other rules are not pertinent. So I do something to avoid personal injury and then my company fires me for not first notifying a supervisor. Do I have any legal rights? Does it matter that I’ve worked for the company for years and have NEVER gotten in trouble?
