Summary

As communication professionals, it is often our responsibility to help organizations handle stressful situations.

However, we need to manage our own stress as well. We are often caught in work-life conflicts and if we do not cope with these effectively, then our work efficiency and life satisfaction are likely to be harmed.

Yan Jin suggests we can handle stress more successfully if our coping strategies allow us to:

o Think first

o Face our feelings and

o Find solutions
