In today’s ­­politically charged climate, it’s easy to feel stressed out at work if your coworkers don’t share your political leanings. Some issues may make you furious, while other topics that seem innocuous to you may enrage a colleague. To keep things civil, respect the opinions of others and know when to disengage. It’s important to walk away when discussions get too heated — you don’t want to ruin a professional relationship over a few moments of frustration. Keep in mind that constant exposure to the barrage of political news can heighten your stress levels and feel overwhelming. Cutting down your intake (while staying informed) can make you less likely to get into a sparring match with your coworkers at the office.
