What do you do when you feel stressed out?

How to Use

Interviewer: What do you do when you feel stressed out?

Carly: It depends on how much work I have to do. Normally, if I am stressed out, I like to go to the gym. After that, I go home and spend time with my husband and children. This usually helps me unwind and relieve my stress. However, if I feel stressed out, but I can't go home because there is still a lot of work to do, then it is different.

Interviewer: How so?

Carly: In that case, I have to find a quick way to relieve my stress. I usually do one of two things. I either get coffee with co-workers and discuss something besides work or I meditate for 10 to 15 minutes.

Interviewer: You meditate? Does that work?

Carly: It is great for me. Even meditating for only 10 minutes can help you calm down and relieve stress.

Interviewer: Interesting. I might have to try it.
