How do you manage stress?


How do you manage stress?

We all get stressed sometimes and this time of the year for accountants can get crazy stressful!


What method of stress management seems to work the best for you?  Is it taking Fido on a walk in the great outdoors or is finding a cozy spot to meditate free from distractions more your style?


Whatever method you choose, we hope you are taking some time out to take care of You!


Re: How do you manage stress?

Hey @CherylGrindell:


I like to go for a long walk.  Listen to work podcasts or my recordings from my mentoring group.  That way I don't feel guilty.  I am still learning.  Since I am focusing on my niche, law firms, I am actually listening to podcasts for lawyers to hear their pain points.


Once and awhile, a good old glass of wine does the trick too!




Re: How do you manage stress?

I do my best to exercise every morning (elliptical), even if it means waking up supper early.  It has been so helpful for me as it allows me to reduce stress and think about non-work items.  Having 3 dogs also helps!  I’m constantly trying to improve my work/life balance.  It’s important with any career, but especially accounting/bookkeeping as it’s a business that usually revolves around deadlines.
