The weather is gradually changing and even though I’m not all for it, I realize that nature will take its course. For the time being, I’m still enjoying the weather and rocking lighter clothes while it lasts!

I have a colleague who is in love with Winter and loves it when it snows! Alright, to be fair, it’s usually much warmer when it snows anyway. However, if you are like me, who isn’t in love with colder months then you have to emotionally brace yourself up for what is to come.

6 Ways to Avoid Secondhand Stress at Work

Have you ever had the feeling that someone at work has passed down stress to you (secondhand stress)? It could just be a colleague that’s continually complaining about an issue to you.

This is called: secondhand stress.

According to scientists, stress is contagious. This explains why when your colleague is sighing loudly, complaining, shuffling pieces of paper and maybe sending you emails in capital letters to show urgency at work, you automatically feel stressed out and extremely anxious in no minute.
