How to Manage Stress in the Workplace

Many people experience work-related stress from time to time. An overabundance of stress can have a negative effect on the body and mind. Left unmanaged, stress can make you unproductive and unable to focus on the things that are important, both at work and at home. Severe, ongoing cases of excessive stress may even lead to a host of medical conditions, including migraine headaches, ulcers, fibromyalgia, high blood pressure and heart disease. Instead of letting work frustrations overcome you, try these techniques to reduce work-related stress and begin to reclaim your life. 

Recognize the Symptoms

Sometimes it’s possible to be stressed without even realizing it. Perhaps you’ve been feeling out of sorts, but can’t figure out exactly why.

Ignoring the warning signs of stress can lead to a myriad of health issues. For this reason, it’s important to know the signs and symptoms of excessive stress. Here’s a list of warning signs to be aware of.

Why Your Business Needs a Newsletter

In today’s digital climate, many businesses are starting to wonder if they should opt out of their newsletters. Some believe that social networking alone is enough to reach clients. However, this can be a mistake, as there are numerous benefits to newsletter marketing. Here’s a look at why your business needs a newsletter.

The Benefits

A company newsletter is a powerful tool with the potential to boost sales, strengthen loyalty, and increase brand awareness. While social media can also be used towards those ends, it is a completely different tool in your arsenal. This is becoming increasingly important, because as algorithms change, direct marketing through these sites may turn out to be more difficult for some small businesses. The newsletter is about delivering specific content to consumers who want to hear from you. It is also delivered directly to the inbox or mailbox of your customer.

Getting a Great Deal on a Short Sale

The housing market is heating up and home buyers are looking for good deals. When you spot a too-good-to-be-true price on a house, chances are it’s a short sale. Buying a house that is a short sale can be rife with problems, but if done correctly, it could net you a sweet deal on a new home.

What is a short sale?

short sale is when a house is sold for less than what is owed on the mortgage against it. It can take longer to close a short sale because it requires the lender that holds the mortgage to “forgive” what is owed beyond the sale price of the house. While it appears that the mortgage company gets the bad deal in this situation, it can be more cost effective for all parties to have a short sale than allow a house to go into foreclosure.
