In small doses, stress can actually be good for us. It helps motivate us to focus on our work and can seriously fuel our productivity. When it's over, if we've done a good job, it can provide us with an even greater sense of accomplishment than we'd have otherwise.

But, as we all know, stress can also make us feel overwhelmed. It can take over our senses and make it really hard to concentrate.

When we're faced with a difficult situation and we feel our stress levels start to increase, the ability to stay calm can make a huge difference in the outcome. Whether you're a doctor, a barista, or a marketer, using techniques to stay calm when you're under pressure will do wonders for your career, your health, and your sense of well-being.
