While checking How Magazine on design topics, I stumbled upon Shedding Stress. The piece looks in detail through real life stories at how stress can run down business professionals (and others of course) and how to deal with it in a healthy way.
A few of the points from the article that are important in my view:
-Choose your clients carefully
-Do not take more assignments than you can handle
-Take a break and breathe some fresh air
-There are only 24 hours in a day and we all need to eat (properly) and sleep (enough)
-Deal with sensitive issues first thing in the morning or it will drag you down.
All this helps us keep our sanity with smart rather than hard work.
