Stress is waking up tired, even though you are positive that you got a few hours’ sleep, as you count them in desperation on your fingers.

Stress is wondering how to word an email properly, writing it three times over and reading it through triple the amount to make sure you didn’t mess up. You do not stop there...

It’s Sunday afternoon, you’re having a nice cup of tea when suddenly it hits you … tomorrow – back to work! What the heck am I going to wear?!
