What would it take to move down one level?

Something to try:

Do a little audit of your workday. Pick a day and keep track of all your sources of stress, distraction and irritation.

Just keep a notepad beside you and jot a word or two down that captures it.

Then at the end of the day, look at your list and choose which of the ten tips I shared would help cut your stress.

Remember a 10% reduction is a good thing.
