Between your phone ringing off the hook, 1,000 unread emails haunting you in your sleep, piles of paper slowly turning into avalanches, and Post-It notes covering every surface within arm's reach, the office can be a pretty stressful place. And while there's nothing you can do about your boss breathing down your neck or your co-workers microwaving fish for lunch (Seriously, Dan? Tilapia again?), you do have control over some things at work that can help you stay sane.
