now i work only privately, but still have stress situations. how i cope with it? hmm.. luckily dont have to be in direct contact with people, then communicating through email. while typing half of words and thoughts i put on side, and then i sound calm :) and then its possible to finish the job for which we are in contact.

When I worked in a call center at Baylor I used to get up and go to the bathroom when I needed a minute, and when I got there I would stop thinking, count to ten or twenty or whatever number necessary and then take a deep breath and reapproach the craziness. Good luck!

Hi, It depends upon the work I am doing I may take a take long breath hold for just few seconds and live it and think my tensions and stress are gone with the breath when I leave it out. A that time I just try to close my eyes also think that I am under water or pool. This what I do mostly when I in stress this I got from a discipline of Sri. Sri. Ravishankar the Art of living founder.

my work related stress comes from my colleagues and employees and not from my boss or above authority. while i am very much satisfied with my boss and the respect is mutual, i just cannot get along with some of the employees who get on my head every now and then. i haven't really figured out any way out, but wat i generally do is to keep to myself and start reverse counting. on situations are graver this doesn't work and i get up, go to other departments or outside and look upto to the sky, breathe deeply and come back. i am the kind who cannot leave the professional baggage on workplace and come home relaxed. i problem being i carry all the hangovers to home. i have been struggling not to do that. hope things get better for me. thanx

I try to stay calm. But when that bucket gets full, I need to step into the break room and take a moment. Sometimes I take a deep breath or run into the bathroom. I run the cold water over my face. Or sometimes I ask another employee to take my place for a minute.
