One of the hardest things I've had to learn to do (and still struggle with) is when to pick your battles. Thus, I found myself nodding as I read Dr. Crazy's blogpost on speaking softly and carrying a big stick. I plan to adopt two of her goals for this semester: (1) choosing my words carefully in faculty and committee meetings and (2) eating lunch (and not always at my desk!) even on busy workdays.
How do you plan to create a less stressful environment for yourself this semester?
