Ten easy ways to address stress at work...

  1. Take deep breaths.

  2. Take a walk, escape from your environment.

  3. Say no to what you don't have time for or what isn't interesting.

  4. Leave work early (or at least on time)

  5. Relax your demands on yourself a bit ‚ most of us expect too much of ourselves.

  6. Ask questions and communicate with co-workers about non work things.

  7. Do unpleasant tasks in the morning to get them over with.

  8. Simplify things whenever possible. Look at large, overwhelming projects as a series of steps you complete one at a time.

  9. Let yourself laugh, especially when you feel grumpiest.

  10. Live in the present--don't spend time worrying about how much better things were in the past or what might happen in the future.
Most people who are able to manage stress have perfected the art of living in the "now".
