This Episode’s Homework

Something to think about:

On a scale of 1 – 10, (1 not at all; 10 to the max) how stressed or distracted am I at work?

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.
