A happy New Year to all!
I was talking with a friend today who shared that she was already stressing out about the New Year's resolutions she might not be able to keep.
Another friend reminded her that the purpose of creating the resolutions is to enhance our lives, not to add to our stress levels.
I thought it might be a good idea to start the year right by quickly measuring our tendencies towards typical Type A behavior. This free assessment at Eli Bay; The Relaxation Response Institute in Canada will take you less than 10 minutes to complete.
Once you complete the assessment, you might want to add stress management to your list of New Year's resolutions for 2008.
Based on what the pundits are saying, 2008 might have some workplace challenges in store for us.
The more we know about our tendencies, the better.
These two articles from BullsEyeResumes can help keep you positive this year.
