Stress. Is it coincidence that this feeling most often occurs on a Monday? Deadlines are looming, it's always too early, wardrobes are unruly, and happy hour after work...ha! Yeah freakin' right! We probably won't even get home until about midnight tonight!

If you're like me, your response to stress involves lots of obscene language (keep your crying babies away), lack of sleep, and angry music (to match my mood, of course).

But today, I may conduct my typical Monday repertoire a bit differently. Happy hour rule? Psshh... I'll break it. Buh-bye, angry music. None taken! I suggest you do the same, so as long as your boss isn't a total psychopath.
