Here are a few techniques you can incorporate to beat the stress:
1. Wake up Early - An extra 15 minutes in the morning can reduce frazzled nerves and give you time to plan for the day.
2. Take a Break - A brisk 15 minute walk can clear your mind and renew your energy.
3. Clean your work area - Visible organization often leads to emotional organization. Plus you’ll spend less time searching for misplaced files.
4. Relax your Muscles - Tense each muscle group for five seconds, then release.
