Set Down the Cookie Crutch
"When you're feeling frazzled, it can be tough to think of a quick pressure-releaser that doesn't involve chocolate. Instead of stuffing your desk with snacks, create a 'nourishment menu,' a written list of simple actions (like sending your partner an 'I love you' text, or treating yourself to a hand massage) that make you feel good and ease stress. When you need a time-out, just look at the menu and choose an item."
