Who knew that a Rolling Stones song, 'You Can't Always Get What You Want' would become a positive antidote to workplace stress? It's great to enjoy what you do for a living, especially if it is fulfilling and energizing. What happens when work becomes the barometer of your entire day, every day? What happens when your day is all about your work day and nothing else? With many administrative professionals on-call 24-7, it doesn't take too much for work to become your life. The energy invested in this type of career dedication can drain away the joy in your work, the love of what you do, and push away those you love.

Right-sizing the role of your career as it relates to your own health and well-being is key!
