Feeling stressed is the worst. When you are, you can’t prioritize your deliverables and every little thing is overwhelming — it’s time to take a break. Going out for a smoke break or bottling it all up inside just won’t help. In fact, it will take its toll on your health. Eventually you will have to let it out, so, rather than getting home and yelling at your spouse or kids or letting that thoughtless driver who cut you off have it, handle your tension at the source and relax before you hit the road.
Picture this: your loyal communications coordinator arrives at work promptly at 9 am every day. He goes about his tasks and avoids Facebook and Twitter.
