Of course, you are. Since I am not a stress expert (other than having experienced it and solved it). I am NOT going to point out that running an advertising agency or working at one today isn’t fucking high stress. Of course, it is. This is way bad. Bad for your career. Bad for your bank account. Bad for your emotional outlook. Bad for your family and worse – bad for your health. A quote from Healthline:
Anxiety can trigger your flight-or-fight stress response and release a flood of chemicals and hormones, like adrenaline, into your system. … This can weaken your immune system, leaving you more vulnerable to viral infections and frequent illnesses.
The drill is if you are like me, the news is fucking intense. The work environment is intense. This working from home is, kinda not fun after a while and your job is kinda precarious.
Advice — Meditate Now
I will offer my experienced perspective on advertising agency and internet start-up related stress-management-business-guidance soon (I had lovely stress from global agency lunacy, CEOing two internet start-ups and owning my own agency).
In the meantime… I strongly suggest that if you do daily meditation today… At least you SHOULD consider it. Caps for emphasis.
